    Headshock o/haul kit

    I have an air fork on a spare bike I need to build. It's leaking oil and won't hold air. What do I need and where can I get it? This is my first Cannondale and I've never dealt with them, so a little help would be great.
    Thanks, David

    Unless you are blessed with lots of cash to blow on tools you'll only ever use for that fork, and lots of time to learn the ins and outs of working on them, I'd find a dealer locally that will work on them for you (few and far between, FYI). Barring that, there a several places that work on them, perhaps ask around here, or, call Cannondale and ask if they have a recommendation for who works on older forks.

    You can also do a fork trade in and get a good deal on a new Headshock through Cannondale if your fork is too far gone...

    Should I convert it over to a conventional fork and buy an economy fork? I don't want to spend alot.

    That will cost more, and yield a lesser performing result.

    You'd need a new stem, headset, conversion cups and fork, easily more than an average service cost, even with a few extras tossed in like a boot and a few races or bearings.

    ironlegsracer, the cheapest way to get you back on the trails is to send it to Mendoncyclesmith. Craig will set you up right and for not a lot of dough.
