    canondale head shock

    i currently own an f600 canondale mountain bike. recently i blew out the head shock(for the 3rd or 4th time) i was told by a canondale representative that the cartridge is no longer in production and i have to upgrade the bike with a new fork/headshock. does anyone know of a company that makes these cartridges for canondale?

    Looks like I won't be buying a Cannondale with a headshock.

    The cartridge can be rebuilt if you can get the seals. I ordered a set through a dealer and I have rebuilt the oil damper and the air cartridge successfully. What year is your F600? I have an '04 F600 with an ultra Fatty DL. The seals are just "O" rings so even if you can't get them through Cannondale you may be able to find decent replacements at a hardware store. The only exception to this is the two wiper seals on damper pushrod.
