Fork compatibility of a F800
I have a F800 frame w/head shock. I wanted to know if it will except a standard fork or am I stuck with the head shock?
I think it has a 1.5" headtube. As long as you get the proper steer tube/headset, you should be OK with a standard fork.

Cannondale Headshok. Although a Headshok steerer is close to 1.5" it is actually 1.5625" or 1 9/16 inch. The Headtube dimensions for 1.5" and Headshok are very similar, differing only in the minimum press depth.
Actually, I have a set of E13 headset cups that will reduce a 1.5" headtube to 1 1/8 to allow you to run a standard 1 1/8" headset and fork. You can have that for $20 shipped.
However, I personally would look for a Chris King Devolution headset or a Cane creek double X headset to the flexability in fork choices (straight 1.5" steer, tapered or straight 1 1/8" steer).
Best of luck with your project.
Thanks for the info. I want to sell the frame, but not if it was incapable of excepting current technology.
