I have an old Cannondale M500 hardtail (in fact hard front too), which is circa 15 years old. The bike has treated me fantastically except that the headset has now gone (requires physical effort to turn the handlebars). Took it to my local and they told me that this part is nolonger made or in stock anywhere and that I may as well throw the frame away - something I am obviously loath to do, mainly because it is such a great bike. Can't remember exactly what diameter headset they said it needed but "threaded 1 1/4 inch" I think.
Anyone have any bright ideas. Thanks in advance.
