    Cannondale Headshok change to Fox Forks help!

    Hi Guys,

    Sorry still a newbie to all this and am looking for some help!

    I have a Cannondale Jekyll 500 and am looking to change the Headshok Suspension Fork to Fox Float RL Fork.

    I know the Cannondale Headset is oversized and not the standard 1 1/8 I think its 1.5, So I will need to get an adapter right? Will this do the job?

    Also I realise I will need a new stem, but will I have to get a new headset for the top of the new fork post?

    Thanks
    Andy

    There are many threads on this same subject and you always get the "know-it-alls" who comment. I am pretty much in the same boat trying to swap a head shock for a 1 1/8 fork.

    Can only experienced people comment on this subject? No offense guys, but if I look up and post some of the responses that I got on this same question you'll laugh your ass off, it is ridiculous. Is Cannondale's top tube actually 1.5? I ask because there are different responses to this question.
    I was somewhat lucky with my Prophet because I bought it with the FSA adapter.


    But can we get some reputable answeres please???

    Sorted!

    Yeah! I have found an adapter that includes the headset.

    Although it is not listed on the website, the Bury site had one in stock.

    I used those reducer cups for a while. They worked, but the stack height was too high for me with the headset I used in them. I ended up finally getting a Cane Creek XXc II flush head set. It works well and looks great. I am riding a 2007 Caffeine frame.
