    Headshock Ultra help

    Hey, I equipped my bike with a 2003 Headshock Ultra fork. A couple of days ago I was hopping with the fork locked, and it suddenly unlocked it self. Now it doesn't lock back.
    Is that supposed to happen? Is it bad adjustment? Is it safe to ride the fork while I get it to the Cdale dealer to check it out?

    It is safe to ride until you can have it fixed. Any Cannondale dealer that has a headshock mechanic will be able to fix it.

    You blew the seal of the lock out, no big deal. I've done it twice, shop had it back to me next day once same day the other time. Easy fix for them I guess.

    you're lucky to have competent cannondale mechanic at your LBS. I have to do everything myself or they have to send it to cannondale.

    Yeah I actually have 3 authorized Cdale dealers in the city, each of them has at least one competent mechanic, for cannondale specific trouble.
