    1.5 Headset Reducer Cups for Cannondale Gemini?

    I have a 04 Cannondale Gemini and I'm looking to install a Marzocchi Shock to replace the Sherman on there now. The bike came with a 1.5 Cane Creek DoubleX headset. Does anybody know if there are reducer cups that I can use WITH THIS headset or am I stuck with paying 80.00 for a new headset. Thus, making this an expensive upgrade by the time you add in the fork, stem and headset.

    Thanks for all your help.

    1.5 to 1 1/8 adapter

    check out the woodman adapters. They allow you to keep the original headset and are quite good. We sell them at my shop-but most savvy cannondale dealers know about them. Feel free to call if you need any more info or want to order some; Castro Valley Cyclery 510 538 1878.

    Thanks

    Thanks John. I couldn't find any information on this on their website so I sent them a email.
    I may call you later today to see if you could give me more information and get a cost.
    Thanks.

    Hey, easier and cheaper, contact Cane Creek. They have a compression ring, top cap and headset race that will fit right onto your headset with no problems whatsoever.

    Just tell them you have a Cane Creek XX headset, and want to convert it to an XXc. They'll know what parts you need.

    Go with that solution - cheap, and made for your headset.
