    Will this work?????

    Has anyone tried this or can they tell me if it will work on my 2009 F5

    The FSA Orbit DL 1.5R Reducer Headset, allows you to reduce a 1.5 to a 1-1/8.

    * Bearing Type: Cartridge
    * Headset Type: 1-1/8" Standard Cups
    * Material: Aluminum
    * Steerer Tube: 1.5"

    I am trying to get this bike rolling for my wife, ASAP and cheap also.

    I'm not the expert, but from the looks of it probably not as Cannondale head tubes are 1.56 and not the standard 1.5 so you will probably need something like the Cane Creek double XC-short.

    And by the way what is wrong with the stock headset as it is already a reducing headset?

    From stock the bike had a lefty I assume or the previous owner kept the headset. I was looking for a more economical option so that I can get this bike rolling for my wife. I love Cannondale's (this is the third I own) but hate that the headtube is made intentionally bigger than the standard 1.5

    Any other recommendations on a reducer headset???

    I am trying to avoid the reducer cups if possible.

    I'm for certain but you might be able to get some adapters and run a standard 1/8th headset.

    I think this might be what ya want.
