I recently bought a used 2003 BBU with the old Headshok fork. I'll admit that I was smitten by the looks of it and wasn't aware of the reputation for failure that this fork has. It seemed to operate okay but when I wasn't able to lock it out I phoned Cannondale and they confirmed that it needed servicing. I know about the tradeout program but I'm thinking of swapping out for a rigid fork. Cannondale recommended the Cane Creek converter but from what I've gathered all I need is the adapters sold on ebay and a common 1 1/8" fork. The question is, does anyone have any specific recommendations for a rigid fork that would complement the design and style of the BBU?
I know nothing about forks but if anyone has any experience with and are happy with their choice in an aftermarket rigid fork for the BBU I would appreciate it. Thanks.
