    suggestion...

    I purchased a Tange Hybrid fork from JensonUSA for $44.55. They sell a few different lengths and have both 1" or 1 1/8" steerer options. I purchased a 300mm which is a bit long but I cut it off to suit my build. You could get the 300mm and thread it to fit your frame. I actually changed over to threadless using a Cane Creek S2 headset. Don't have any pictures yet and I am still currently building it but will post some pictures as soon as I am done and time permits.

    Here's a link to the fork I have.

    I almost forgot, you have the M series which require a mountain fork. Here's what you might be interested in.

    Thanks a ton. i found teh Tange locally and installed but its a heavy mother compared to the OEM cannondale or even an old ritchey logic. I think i found a ritchey logic used but would still want to find an OEM cannondale in the right length or longer.
    Thanks!

    I've got a question sorta related to this.

    I've got a 1990 Marin with a 1-1/8 headset and threaded fork. I recently purchased a dirt cheap stem, but it turns out its for a 1" threaded fork.

    If I were to buy a 1" fork, would I need to then also purchase a 1" threaded headset?

    if for the same bike-unless you got spacers-it would not work on your bike.
    and the answer is yes-all sizes bolted together must be same dimension...
