Hi All - Anyone here convert an F600 to a 69er? My predicament; I'm really looking to step up into a Flash Carbon 2 29er or Flash 1 29er, but as I'm sure most of you know, they're very hard to find new. I'm now thinking of waiting to see what Cannondale does for 2011. This means I'll be stuck with my F600 for another 2000 or so miles of riding, ugh! My biggest pain point is the darn headshock. It doesn't lock out anymore, and the rebound is hellacious when I put enough air into it so it's not mushy (I guess i choose nasty rebound over mush).
So what I'd like to do for these next 2000 miles is to replace my shock. I've test rode the 29er and love 'em, so I'm thinking to make it a 69er. I'm just not sure where to start with this. Any suggestions for shocks/rims to make this happen? I'm lookin' for a nice balance of value/quality considering I'll be buying a completely new bike in a few months, but will still use this bike for friends/backup.
Please note, I don't really keep up with the latest mountain biking stuff when I'm not in the market to buy stuff... and the last time I bought stuff was 2003. So forgive me for all the obvious answers I'm sure I've overlooked.
