    Convert Cannondale Fatty to 1 1/8 Shock?

    I want to replace my old Fatty Shock on my Cannondale Jeckyll to a standard 1 1/8 shock. This is a backup bike that I ride when my primary bike is serviced or used when friends/relatives ride. The old shock had very little travel on it so I will replace it with a 100 or 120. I do not want to spend a lot of money on the conversion. I have read where you can purchase a King Devolution Headset (which is expensive)--others have mentioned a Big Fat Pig Headset which is much cheaper. But some have said those won't work. Others have mentioned using spacers. I would like to go with that Big Fat Pig if it will work its pretty reasonably priced online. Help Would be appreciated.

    I am in the US so is this the same thing:

    Cannondale Mountain Bike Reducer Headset - 1 1/2" to 1 1/8" threadless - HD232 | eBay

    It does not look like it has as many pieces as the one you linked to but not sure what in the world I would do with all of those pieces in the set you linked to.

    It looks like the one you found is a reducer of sorts but not the official Cannondale one. Although its listed with the Cannondale part number?? This headset should have cartridge bearings not loose like in the picture.

    I used a Cane Creek Double XCII flush headset. Works great. Low profile. Expensive though. I paid about $80 for it. I put this on my Caffeine frame set. As far as I know it will fit any cannondale 1.5.
