I just bought a brand new Cannondale F 1000 frame with the SL headshock. the problem is is that it's missing the internals. Anyone know where I can find the parts? Having a brand new Cannondale has kind of been a dream of mine. Couldn't justify the $2000.00 from a bike store so this a work in progress.

Just an FYI, I don't think you are going to want to mess with installing the internals yourself. We have a few specialized tools for doing it. You can get away without using them if you know what you're doing and are very familiar with the Headshok, but for what little it generally costs to service a Headshok, it'd be worth it in my opinion to take it in to a Cannondale shop and have them mess with it.

What about aftermarket internals? Manitou, etc. It's an SI and not an SL.

I've heard good stuff about the Magura cartridge for the Cannondale Fatty forks. In fact, other than being stiff, that is the only good thing I've heard about them.

My son has the Fatty SL on his F600 and his has been rebuilt once and had the whole fork replaced once also all within the first two months. It also has no negative spring so it tops out with a hard thud. With what is available from any other fork maker that isn't acceptable. It may be fairly light and stiff but it has been a POS in my book.
