    Thanks all for the advice on the front hub. I'm going to get some chinese carbon wheels (light bicycle) with dt swiss hubs for the Slate. A bit wider rim with a deep profile would make the bike ride even better I think.

    My shop was selling the leftover 2017 Apex 1 slates with the rigid lefty for almost 50% off so I jumped on it and a couple of days later I found a lefty oliver on ebay that looked pristine for $450. It comes with the steerer tube as well. Does anyone know if I will need to swap out the headset on the rigid slate or will it be the same as the suspension slate?

    Anyone tried the Cannondale Slate

    Just ordered a SAVE seatpost for my Slate and am removing my KS Lev dropper post as I find I am not using my bike for singletrack as much as I thought I would. Anyone interested in a dropper? Installed but no scratches and working perfectly

    Try a Thompson stem, works a treat on mine:

    Make sure you choose the 1-1/2" steerer, not the 1-1/8" if you do go with Thompson. It appears that they only offer lengths of 45mm, 75mm, and 95mm.

    Not sure on the model of the stem, its just the regular 1-1/2 as mtuck1 mentioned, this is the 95mm version. Standard top-cap that came with the bike is a perfect fit.

    So just got off the phone with Cannondale and for those who are curious if you have the Slate with the rigid lefty the headset bearings are not the same diameter as the ones required for Lefty Oliver. So if you happen to have the 2017 Slate Apex 1 with the rigid lefty to be able to use Oliver you need these two parts:

    just put the G Ones back on(tubeless) waiting for my SAVE seatpost and Fabric Flat Pro Carbon saddle. She will make a great 60/40 gravel/road bike. Thought I would have used it for more singletrack (thus the dropper).saw this poor girl limping with some sort of spike in her leg
    Enjoy the ride...
