    Cannondale fork Help!?

    Hello,

    I am fairly new to mountain biking and know little about after market parts and upgrades. I am currently riding an ancient Cannondale super V 700 sl. It may be outdated, but I think it is a seriously cool bike. I have headshok issues. From my research, it seems like the headshoks do not last very long and are expensive to repair. I'm considering putting a rockshox or fox on the dinosaur. Any suggestions....other than buying a 3,000$ bike. Im in college and have little money to spare.

    thanks

    I just watched some brand new takeoffs of rock shox recon solo air forks with a remote lockout lever go on ebay for about 180$ shipped. That would make a nice replacement without breaking the bank.

    Thanks. Do you have any info on converting? Like where to find a reducer kit...is the rock shox recon a reliable setup?

    I am guessing that your frame has a 1.5" headtube. You will either need a 1.5" steertube fork, or buy a reducer for a 1.125" steertube.

    Ok. I picked up a Fox f series 32 FiT RLC with a 1.5 in steer tube, so I won't need to convert to the 1 1/8 inch. This shock uses a 15mm thru axle, and my old rim is a 9mm qr. I have seen a few conversion kits, but not sure which one to trust. Any suggestions?

    Never mind. I see that they don't make conversion kits for 9mm qr to 15mm thru axle. Looks like a used wheel will be my next pur chase...
