if it is any sign, we both still rock the stock fork, hmmmm... mine can't seem to be broken. I ahve bashed it and ridden it hard, and still NOTHING as far as bad mojo goes. I don't intentionally abuse it, I just ride it hard, and it actually rides pretty good, it has almost zero adjustability, but it handles what I dish, so I think I've been lucky. *knock on wood* so keep on rockin low-end Spinner Edge

yeah, there are really no trails near me, since i live right in the heart of boston, so i mainly street ride. hopefully after snowboarding season i can start going farther south to some real trails instead of by the river here.

I just upgrade my frame to Titus Racer X
And I put XTR crank and Thompson seatpost.
I have to put front derailleur later on.

I'm very happy with this used frame but little heaver than what I expected.

I don't know. I just installed everything and i had 20miles ride at last Saturday and had little back pain.
I guess the handle bar is little lower than K2 ( headset tube is much shorter than K2 )

nope, dont think cannondale made a carbon hardtail frame until this year. Its aluminum (03 f600. only thing stock left on it is frame/headset/stem/handlebars)

Last time i weighed it, was at the start of the season, and it was 25.4lbs. I would love to get it lighter, but i cant justify spending the money on it.
