    Frame to Suit Solo DL50

    Hey guys,

    New here, have heard this is the place for Cannondale questions.

    I have a Fatty Solo SL50 (Headshok) taken off my Bad Boy that I would like to put in another bike to build for a friend.

    Can you advise what Cannondale frame (apart from the Bad Boy) I could get 2nd hand that would fit this fork?

    Thanks!

    Any older (pre 2010) should work. They all have the same head tube.

    Thank you! That sounds very viable.

    So, I could buy any pre-2010 Cannondale MTB frame, regardless of model?

    Sorry for the late response, but yes that is mostly correct. There were some 1-1/8" models in the mix, post 2007 but all the pre 2007 bikes had 1.5" head tubes.

    If you find an older frame, go to Vintage Cannondale. They have tons of information.

    So I've managed to find a F29 carbon frame with 1.5 headtube.
    Will that be suitable?

    The fork will fit, but the fork doesn't take 29" wheels.

    The fork came from a Bad Boy 1 which had 700c wheels on it originally? Maybe just need to watch the tire size?

    Incorrect.

    I ran 2" mtb tires on a 29er Crossmax in the DL50.
    Plenty of space.

    Frame to Suit Solo DL50-img_2855.jpg

    Here is a 700x35 tire on a 29er Crossride in a DL50.
    A 35 is already much bigger than a road tire.
    PLENTY of space for a mtb tire.
