Urgent Headset Question

Sorry about the yelling in the title but I'm on a pretty tight schedule if this is the screw up I think it may be. I'm converting my front fork on my Cannondale Bad Boy Ultra from the stock Headshok to a 1 1/8 " fork. I ordered a FSA Orbit DL Headset 1.5R Reducer Headset from Speedgoat. Upon reading around at work today I noticed that FSA also offers a Orbit Z Internal Headset 1.5 " Reducer, the headset on my Cannondale is a Integrated so does that mean I need the Orbit Z rather than the DL? Any advice from someone who's done the conversion before or whatever. I already placed my Speedgoat order so I'd like to be able to cancel it without having to pay restocking if I screwed up.

Thanks,

Kris

They weren't entirely sure. Said they'd ask Cannondale but that's always a hassle so I thought I'd ask here too.

The guys at western have only been dealing with C'dale for a couple of years, so they might not know off hand. Your best bet is to give the guys at Bike Doctor in Saskatoon a call, talk to one of the wrenches, they've been dealing with Cannondales for years and years, so they'll more than likely know.
