I wouldn't sandblast a Cannondale frame. The aluminum is VERY thin. Aircraft paint stripper would be my choice there. Maybe plastic media, or something else less aggressive- consult with the guy who is going to do the job beforehand.
+1 on gutting the fork. Powdercoating requires 400+ degree baking, which would probably blow out the seals on the fork.
