    Problems with Cannondale Headshok below -20C

    Hello,

    on our last winter-cycling-trip in finland we had temperatures below -20C(-4F) and after 3 days with this conditions, the air in my headshok suspension was complete off. so i locked the suspension to prevent to damage my suspension.
    can i buy a special "winter" cartridge with other seal to prevent the air get lost at very cold condotions??
    or is there another reason for my problem?

    Thanks, Jakob
    !sorry for my terrible english!

    Same problem. I've simply learned to lock-out the suspension when it gets cold outside. Your English is fine, BTW.

    There is no air-suspension, that I know of, on the planet that is not affected by the cold (or the hot, or the highs or the lows) it's physics baby!!!
