    Replacing my 'HEADSHOK' fork...

    Hi all,

    I own a 1998 Cannondale V700 MTB.

    I wanted to know if I can replace the 'HEADSHOK' fork with a standard type fork...

    If I can, do I need anything special? modifications?

    Thanks alot.

    You can purchase adapters for the head tube from a cannondale dealer at the very least. Probably from any shop many Cannondale bikes I see have been converted to the inferior shocks by other manufacturers.

    Good luck.

    Agreed, all you need are headset reducer cups. Expect to pay about $50-75 for them. Take your frame into the dealer and have them installed as well.

    The reducer cups will allow you to run any standard 1-1/8" steerer tube!
