Headshok Maintenance and Repair
(under construction, always...)
After about three years I decided to try and update this website some. The story is that I no longer own a cannondale and probably never will again, at least not a headshok equiped one. After I took apart my headshok it laid around for a while only recently putting it back together (yes about 2 years later). I had replaced it with an ordinary fork using one of the CLC Adapters, which IMHO worked much better. However the CLC Concept page is no longer there. I do have a phone number for them and I will try an contact them to see if they are still in business
I believe this website is a great asset to many people, hence the reason it is still up. I myself now maintain/own a VERY large
mountain bike website so all my time is devoted to it (http://www.Hcor.net). I still have an open invitation for anyone that would like to take this page over, but keep
it here at this URL.
Headshok Accessories! Yes they do exist, companies other than Cannondale that make aftermarket accessories for Headshoks. Sometimes the parts are hard to find. I've been searching the net to find these parts. Visit my accessories page to get all the information.
Ever wondered how to take apart and repair your Headshok yourself, can't never seem to find anyone that can tell you anything, nor find anything on the web about it? So have I! Once I found out through numerous sources how these shocks work I decided to share the wealth!
Here I will explain how to remove, install, tear down, repair, and maintain a Cannondale Headshok. Pictures will document everything along with written explanations.
We have all heard of the tools that Cannondale makes to work on HeadShok's that are only available through your local bike shop. I have found pictures of these tools for you to look at here. I myself have taken the dimensions from the Shoks and these pictures to make what tools I need to work on the shock. NOTE: You need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view all the manuals I have on this page.
If you notice some information on here that is incorrect or have any tips you think should be added, please send them my way! firstname.lastname@example.org
Full archive of all the manuals Cannondale has on their site related are contained on this site as well. Click here to take a look at them.
Thanks to everyone that has and is contributing to this site!
