Hey,
I just recently cracked my lovely Cannondale Flash 29er Hi-Mod frame. I'm looking for some input on this topic as I'm puzzled what to do next:
1) sell everything as it is (with a broken frame) get some scraps and buy I new bike with the money I don't have atm :)
2) hunt for new frame on eBay and maybe fix (or not) the old one and sell it.
3) maybe an open mold frame is an option?

Which year, if you have one with the Cannondale specific 1.5" headset then you'll need a new fork unless you buy another 'dale.

it is hard to judge since we do not see your pictures,

but I would have it inspected by a good carbon repair shop and have it repaired if money is not there for a new one. Ibis have a "no fault" replacement program, maybe you could check with Cannondale if they have one, I doubt, but maybe.

I also vouch for carbon repair. Carbon is actually pretty easy to work with and repair.

Calfee Designs is really good at this, reasonable with price, and really nice people to work with.
