    M400, circa 2000

    Hey there,

    Does anybody out there know which forks can be used with this bike? I was told that only certain forks would fit. Thanks

    I have a bike like that, and I mounted a Marzocchi Comp Eta.
    But have one thing in mind!!!
    My fork is a 100 mm, it's too much.
    It's like riding a chopper...

    There use to be a slight missunderstanding about C-dale and forks.
    If you ride a C-dale with a Lefty or a Fatty, in that case it's not that easy.
    The diameter is much wider using a Lefty or Fatty.

    M400 is standard

    When I originally read your question about this topic on the general discussion forum, I had an M400 (no front suspension) confused with an F400 (Headshock). Sorry about misleading you that your frame would only accept Cannondale specific fork sizes. While I was in to pick up my bike today, I talked with my LBS mechanic who told me M400's have a standard 1 1/8" headtube and will accept standard forks that fit that head tube size.

    Thanks for the input! I currently have a Manitou Magnum fork on the bike and it's doing fine, but it's good to know that I can upgrade if the mood strikes me.

    Have it checked.

    it may be the older 1 1/4" threadless steer. I do not think so, but I am not positive. If it is, all is not lost. there are a couple of headset makers who make a headset that goes from 1 1/4 to 1 1/8. It is supposed to be 1 1/8".

    Thanks for all the help fellas. I just had my bike tuned up and ready to ride, but of course, it's snowy and REAL cold here in the Northeast. I'm not sure about biking in the snow.
