    For a tapered fork, I've used KP205 - Cannondale Headshok Frame Tube to Taper Steerer Suspension Fork Adapter and its perfect.

    The KP119 should be what you need for a straight 1.5 fork.

    See: Definitive guide: Cannondale frame headset fork compatibility for mountain bikes

    I don't think you should give up on your 1.5" as you are almost there. The KP119 is only $60 so what do you have to lose?

    I used the headshock s/i to 1-1/8 kit from cannondaleexperts (KP058) for my dual crown fork. I think it's KP058

    I feel your pain.... My suggestions on the swingarm... If you see one and it's expensive, buck up and jump on it. Ive missed a few because of trying to be frugal and wasted lots of time.

    ok i found this now, complete bike but really cheap (ca 200$), thinking about getting this one...
    frame got short tabs, and apparently warranty changed banana to CAAD 4 swingarm, paint is bad but doesnt matter.

    but cant decide should i buy it or search for swingarm. if u buy it, it doesnt solve my problem, i will need one more swingarm to make 2 ubers

    any suggestions?

    Stop dream blockin' just buy it. You can always find something cheaper, but you can't buy your time back spent searching. I paid more than I should have for a complete jekyl frame... but my bike is built and I'm not still searching ha.

    Also, send me link to that white super-v for sale LOL. I want to build another!

    Hi,

    OK, bit of an update.

    The fitment of offset bushings (slackening the HA to 68.5 from 70) has made a load of difference. I first noticed this on a ride out at Forest of Dean Blue graded trail - the final downhill section - the bike was much more stable and less twitchy. Kept on line a load better. Great!

    Then it had a much bigger test on the red trails at Bike Park Wales - only done the blues on visits before hand. Great day and the bike held its own with the more modern bikes on show.

    I always get great comments about the bike too e.g. 'WOAH! I used to have a poster of one of the them on my wall! etc. Makes you feel great. Mint.

    Keeps me from buying a modern bike too. Love the UBER.

    Upgrading the HOPE C2's to modern Shimano SLX 180mm discs front and back and currently collecting parts to go 1x10 - just need chainring and range expander (thinking works components 30t and 40t).

    The Super V frame (see pic for mock up) - is coming along - the drivetrain and brakes from the Uber will be making it onto that one - decided on running disk brakes rather than going V's.

    Hi all!!! My restomod to super V. Not uber V but "under V" (reducer travel to have a better steering angle). In the following pictures before and after ( many things needs to be tuned": seatpost,cable routing, pedals, saddle).

    Looking good my friend. I too am in the process of building a Lefty Uber V and hope to be finished by Christmas. I see you are using a Rockshox RT3 on the rear. I have mine mounted in reverse as yours so I can get to my controls easier. Don't know if it makes a difference.

    Have fun filing the cable stays so your hydraulic hose for the rear brakes slides through them. I've used the adapters, but with a good set of files, time, and maybe a libation or two, the end results is well worth the effort.

    I also see you are using a 1x11? Do tell of your set up and experience!

    Happy Holidays,

    Rear is an adapyed rp23 (165mm sadly...it is forced) and is 1x10.
    For me is too little I did it for my friends. It was a "historical" frame and I didnt want to have it thrown away.
    I will make a better report when finished (tested yesterday for the first time).
