    Upset Headshok DD50 or DD60 on a Killer V 500 frame.

    I have my Super V being delivered any day now and was wondering if it was possible to fit the DD50 or DD60 fork (I will have both) to a '95 Killer V 500 frame. The Killer V has a 1.125 or 1 1/8 head tube. I've seen the reverse adapters with the smaller forks that need to fit inside a 1.5 head tube but that doesn't help me. Can Cannondale downsize the steerer tubes? Thanks for your answers.

    Sorry Pal.... but putting a 1.5 Headshok fork in a frame that only accepts a regular steerer tube is impossible... :cryin

    Sorry, Theres no way. I once wanted to put a headshok on my Ellsworth frame, (before I got a c-dale.), and it didn't work.

    Can Cannondale change the steerer tube to a 1 and 1/8 for me?

    I believe the reason the steerer is so large is because thats where the internals of the headshok are. IIRC, hence the name headshok, because the shock is in the headtube.
