    The 2009 F5 on the CO2 SL frame still used the 1.5 head tube with a reducing headset down to 1 1/8 for the RST fork, so you can go with a 1.5 HeadShok or Lefty or any other 1 1/8 steer tube fork utilizing the current headset. There are also headsets that will let you use a tapered fork as well. Essentially you can use just about any fork you would like with the 1.5 head tube.
