Don't think so, if you are talking about his canobdale, it had a 1.5" straight steerer that when he fitted a new fork he was running a tapered steerer

Had two. One on DH bike, 1 1/8" steerer & 1.5 tube, 2 degrees. One on trail bike, 1 1/8" steerer, 1 1/8" tube, 1 degree. Both made difference and no problems. Nice bit of kit.

Are you not better off with offset bearings mate? That's what I did for Jamies Giant and it works a treat.

I would fit off set bushes but it's for the hard tail lol

Anyway, if I was going down the same route for the banshee I still would fit the headset due to it already being set in the slack setting on the flip clip system so the bottom bracket os very low as it is
