What fork do I need?

2006 56cm Cannondale CAAD8

700c
Fork Rake 45mm
Trail 56mm

I don't see Cannondale list the crown height in the geometry tables.

1. Is the crown height the same on all forks? I do not want to change the geometry at all. I just want a replacement.

2. The bike has an integrated headset. Does that change my choices for a fork?

3. I am looking at this fork. Will it work for my bike?

Fork length can vary slightly but do not have a large impact - see http://www.sheldonbrown.com/rinard/forklengths.htm

Use an integrated fork with an integrated headset - a non-integrated might work but it would look like crap

Yes, that one should work (and the price is so good I am tempted to upgrade)

Thanks for the reply. I got all the information I need except for crown height on a 2006 56cm Cannondale CAAD8. I tried emailing cannondale but no response.

I assume that what you are calling crown height is what I am calling fork length (distance from crown to axle). Most road fork manufacturers seemingly don't bother to publish that info. You might have better luck just posting to ask someone who rides one with a Slice fork to measure it. Note that the frame size won't matter - the fork is the same.

Yes that is the measurement I am talking about. I dont know why it is not published because if I want to replace the forki dont want to change the tube angles from a different length.
