Spent a freezing day in the shed refitting the original forks to my delta V, then reacquainted myself with the finer points of canti set up. Made more frustrating by the Force 40 brake hanger/booster. Complicated doesn't cover it. Front now working amazingly, but back lacking a wee bit. Had to call it a day though as I was pissing slush! Also fitted my old thumbies and the Coda qr's I picked up on ebay, but still waiting on cranks and shorter stem from the states.

Bike looking good back in more original spec, but I'm a bit worried it won't ride a nice as it did with the newer air headshok and v's. Time will tell.

If you can fix them it's worth it, the later ones especially are nice forks. There's a set on ebay at the moment that might be of interest to you. Watching them myself as a spare if they stay cheap.

Other option is getting them fixed professionally at Thumprint Tuning. Think it's £90 for a damper rebuild. More than I paid for my frame and forks but by the time you buy conventional forks and a reducing headset you won't be too far off that.

The appeal of Cannondales to me is that they always took their own path. Yes it forces you to buy in completely to their parts, but they work and don't look like anything else.

Rob, you claim to have all these bikes but all you ever ride is that bloody Specialized!
Do they really exist or are they just in your imagination?
