    Headshok headset adjustment

    I just bought a used Cannondale F500 with the Headshok P-bone. I think my headset is a bit loose, but I'm not sure how to snug it up. I've worked mostly with threaded headsets, so not only is it threadless, its a headshok. I'm pretty mechanically inclined, but does this require special tools that would require me taking it to a shop? Would it have to be a Cannondale dealer or not? Any help would be appreciated.

    There is a special tool that fits down in the to of the headset to tighten it. I don't have one but I saw my shop use it to tighten my bike.

    There is no adjustment. Just make sure the stem is pushed down. Your bearings may be shot, or the looseness you are feeling may not be in the headset.
