    Front Range, dude...
    I have recently inherited a Cannondale F 700 with what apperas to be a blown headshok. I haveread that this is not an uncommon problem...what are my options? My son will be ridiing it, he can spin it locked out, but eventually he will want a little bounce. Anyone?

    Here. I'm just not sure where "here" is.
    IIRC, the headshock was a 1.50 head tube. You may want to confirm that with a set of calipers.

    Yeah I thought that those frames had a 1.5 headtube which I think means you can fit pretty much any fork on the planet to it if you get the right reducers.
