    Didn't Stan's start doing wide Carbon wheels this year, too?

    Might be the same thing from the same factory.

    So why don't I start a thread here soon titled "jwestland who has no clue attempts to rescue an f1000 from the bin cos it followed her home". Or suchlike :)

    Yeah. Do it. You can replace the 'sock' reasonably easily...if you can get the fork out...

    You might not be able to get a yellow one though :(

    TF Tuned could probably do it...if Cannondale would let them.

    They won't tho.

    And they don't even deal with CSG...

    Tooling required depends what is wrong with it. Needs a proper diagnosis first. If the oil damper needs a rebuild then it's a castletool, bullet tool and shaft clamps.

    The trouble is that you need to know what you are doing to know you need the later two of those tools.

    If these forks go anywhere near any wrench who doesn't know what they are really doing then they will be returned to you in a bin bag.

    If you really want it done properly your options are take it to a Cannondale specialist in the UK - there are a few - or post it to Craig Mendon in the US.

    The later is more likely to work out TBH.

    would make a nice shopper

    Not my thing but there are some weird team only specials kicking around.

    You have the option to buy one?

    Not a production bike - expect weirdness.

    I wouldn't go bigger than 35mm

    Keep the pressures low. 28mm might do you to be fair.
