Bicycle Mechanics - Front suspension
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
I hope this is the right forum to post my question, my apologies if it is not.
I like the idea of the front suspension system that comes with Canondale bikes. Are there other manufacturers that makes front suspension systems for 700 rim/tires, that you can activate and deactivate on the fly?

Rock Shox makes a model specifically for touring bikes/hybrids/cyclocross bikes.
Marzocchi is making a high quality fork for the 29inchers (700c rims w/knobbies).
So, Yes, there are many options available to you.
Can you please tell me the models numbers? Can you lock and unlock the suspension on the fly like the Cannondale?
I check the manufacturers web sites, but didn't find the forks. I send an e-mail but they haven't reply to me yet.

Rock Shox Europa (http://www.rockshox.com/03RSProduct/03RSGPSPage/03RSGPSPageFlash.html)
The Europa comes in either 26" or 700c versions. Most in this line are the same way.
I went to the Gary Fisher websiteFisher (http://www.fisherbikes.com/bikes/bike_detail.asp?series=genesis&bike=Supercaliber_29)
and reviewed their 29 inch series bikes.
From that, the Marathon SL29, MX-Pro 29 w/ETA, and the MX-Comp w/ETA and MX-Comp Coil are all available in the 29/700c format.
