Hi all

Having become a huge fan of my supersix evo, I've just picked up a NOS Caad9 frame, but without a fork, I need guidance on what to get.

I think (?) these are 1 1/8 using a 45/45 standard campag headset fit, if this is right then choice shouldn't be an issue, I assume also stick to a 45 rake

Not wanting to spend a fortune as its more a winter bike but I do need a 300mm length steerer as its a 63cm frame, with 220mm headtube and I need 30mm of spacers as I'm a tall bag of spuds.

Keen to keep to all carbon, not a fan of alloy steerers following a messy failure once.

Planet x pro carbon forks are a bargain and from past experience pretty good but might not suit.


cheers

Can of worms ... difficult to get a match between crown diameter of fork and dia of head tube. Much easier to get a straight replacement from a Cannondale dealer, if they are indeed available.

I own a Cannondale CAAD9 frame and fork. It has an FSA headset. So I doubt the headset is anything fancy, complicated, or non routine. I'd say take the frame to a local good bike shop and they will definitely have a headset to fit. Or buy an assortment of headsets online and one of them will work too. Uses the enclosed, internal bearings. My fork is all carbon except the dropouts. Says "Premium" on the side. I'd say just try to find a standard, NOS New Old Stock, Cannondale fork somewhere. Pretty sure Cannondale used the same forks on all their CAAD frames for years and years. I have a CAAD7 frame and fork with a fork with aluminum steerer.

Oh man, I have a new Caad 9 fork laying around that was mounted on my size 52 caad9 when I got it. I replaced it instantly with a Ritchey WCS fork. But the length of the steerer is not 30 cm, so I guess no good for you :cry:

Off topic. But why would you replace a perfectly good, functional fork with another fork that I presume also works OK? I guess the money burning a hole in my pocket expression is correct.

I did the same thing, replacing my caad9 fork with a Ritchey WCS. Reason was the Ritchey fork is about 130 grams lighter (and I got a good deal). This is weight weenies after all.

I have several caads. They all have Easton ec90 slx's. any good quality 1-1/8" fork will do. It's not rocket science. The best match would be a c'dale premium + full carbon but those will be hard to find by itself.

I used an ENVE 1.0 on my CAAD9, worked a treat. I assume the ENVE 2.0 would also be a good choice.

I use an ENVE 1.0 50mm Rake on my size 48cm. For the size frame you have an ENVE 2.0 with 45mm rake would be much more suitable. The 43mm rake version would probably also be fine.

On my caad9 54cm I used a enve 1.0 for a few years. 45mm rake. Handling was spot on. Campy compatible headset 45x45.

Because the Caad 9 fork has aluminum steerer which makes it rather heavy.

My 09 caad stock fork was full carbon.
