    Caution;  Merge;  Workers Ahead! Need Help With Fork Upgrading

    I bought a Cannondale Moto 5 last year. I want to upgrade the fork, but im having a hard time find other compatible options.
    It has a RockShox 302 U-turn. Im confused on the steerer tube size, 1.5 straight. Is this correct?
    and are there other replacement forks with same size?

    I believe you can get headset reducers to allow common sizes to fit your steerer. Might be a good question for the Cannondale forum or Shocks n Suspension

    LIke phantoj said, you should be able to swap the top headset cup for 1 1/8 reducer. You'll also need a new stem though. Reducer headsets were a common thing for a few years before the industry went all in on tapered. They shouldn't be too hard to source. You need to find out the internal diameter (ID) for your headtube. You could search that, but it will be a lot easier to contact Cdale. You might have a proprietary headset? Call them to see what your options are.
