Out of curiosity, how do you like the headshock? I rode my friends for a while, and it seemed a little squishy. I like my suspension firm though, so maybe that's why I didn't like it so much. Is it adjustable, or is it one setting? I never got to play around with it, so I'm a little ignorant on it.

Come to think of it, I should of torn my friend's apart when I had the chance!Big Grin

Sweet to see Cannondale's "HeadShok" suspension fork. The components are in an oversized steerer tube. Not sure about this but I think the headset bearings are Cartridge Sealed. jr, if your friends was squishy there probably were no preload adjustments. I agree a very nice ride! Smile

Good maintenance to your Bike, can make it like the wheels are, true and smooth!

Yup. You're right. Sure is adjustable. Now if you could just be so kind as to ship it up North here so I can have a whack at it, it'd be appreciated!Big Grin

Now that is an awesome setup. Very simple to adjust too. Too bad they didn't offer them in open market for other makes and models.

Great bike, I got the same model, Viper Red with yellow decals.

Mines got hit with the colour keyed stick with yellow DMR V8 pedals, yellow bottle cages and yellow dice caps.

Is the headshok on that the P bone M version?
