I have a new '11 aluminum Cdale Flash 29er. I picked it up from a guy who got it for warranty from his old prophet. During the course of building it up I've run into some fun with the headset. I want to run a tapered Fox fork (I dont want to hear from the lefty crowd) and to do so I need adapter headsets. What I've come across so far is that the headshok headtubes changed in '10 so the normal adapters from cane creek and the like will not work. Cannondale has 2 options for those who refute the lefty. A 1 1/8" straight headset Cdale part # KP058 or a 1.5" straight headset Cdale part # KP119 . To run a tapered steerer you need to buy both and scrap half.
Has anyone else come across this issue? What solutions did you find? And can anyone suggest how to do this without buying both and still run a tapered fork?
I think my best bet may be to find a straight 1.5 but I've yet to track down a 29er fork with one. Plenty of tapered and straight 26er forks. Any suggestions on that front would be a big help as well.
