    Thanks. May just buy a new headset, as it's going to be £5 with postage which seems silly.

    Edit: went to the LBS and they let me root through the massive box of headset bits. Managed to Frankenstein something together.

    I know that! Trying to avoid paying 4.99 + postage for a tiny ring. A new headset is only £10...

    Edit: went to LBS, rooted through their box of headset bits, problem solved for free!

    Does anyone happen to have a 1 1/8 headset compression ring to fit a cane creek headset? Can't seem to find one and it's the last bit I need. I know they're only a couple of quid but I thought someone may have one that wouldn't mind sticking it in the post (I'll pay for the stamp and envelope!)

    Cheers, good idea. Looks like it's an easy part to source - just didn't know the name! (It's a compression ring).

    I'll try on current projects and if no luck it's only a couple of quid.

    Does the blue, canti pomp take a normal size 1 1/8 headset? Just got mine built up after arsing about buying a canti hanger and 30mm clamp (30mm, ffs!) and realised the headset is missing the little inner sleeve bit which stops the play. As I assume you can't buy that bit on its own, gonna have to buy a whole new headset.

    Within reason, obviously. What I'm saying is a NOS frame is not going to go for significantly more than a 'used' one in the same way it might for something rare/boutique. You might have some luck on eBay, but honestly, I don't see anyone here being that fussed. Might be worth sticking it in the Cannondale thread though just to see. Your market is a very specific person - someone who wants one of these frames and wants to pay the premium for NOS of the less popular colourway. A silver/black one in 56 is about £300 - that's what I paid for mine and that's what I'd sell it for. Even then, it might be tricky.

    I'm not trying to be a dick, just trying to give some realistic advice. You'd deffo be better splitting it if you want to sell as NOS.

    I just don't think this is a thing where NOS matters that much. These frames are usually about £3-350 in the black/silver colourway, regardless of condition. I don't know if the market is there for a NOS one in the same way it would be for a 'nag or something. As someone said, eBay will tell you if you've priced it right.

    This is the only solution.

    Nobody's paying £1500 for this.
