I know it's probably no more than a few g's but it's irritating.
According to 2 Cannondale specialists I need to buy a complete new headset, for £55, in order to use the top half (since the bottom won't fit) just so I can get that part.
While on headsets, am I limited only to Cannondale offerings? Or could I upgrade the whole shooting match to something nicer/lighter/better quality?
I managed to get 5mm top cone replacements for my Synapse and CAAD10 by asking nicely in the LBS if they had anything suitable. Don't think I paid more than a tenner either. Try them out. I think the 5mm hidden cap of the SuperSix headset will work, but it's not perfect. These can be obtained individually from a few places, Dr Cannondale springs to mind. Newer versions don't have SuperSix printed on them, either, which is nice.
You are UK/Europe based? Dr Cannondale in Germany, Westbrook Cycles or Qwerty Cycles should be able to sort you for parts.
Check item 110962175559 on ebay. Offers you a few diff. options so you can get your geometry correct. Otherwise, just search for conical spacer.. common item.
Sorry if that's not what you're talking about!

Sorry, I missed this post.
Is it really that simple?
So this would be ok too??

I'd need another 15mm of plain spacers but still.
That one means a 25mm conical spacer plus 2 x 5mm ones giving an overall height of 35mm?
I need 50mm total so I don't mind if the conical one is more, just haven't seen any more than 25mm on my travels.

He's a good guy though. Wasted on the local market.
I went in there for a brake inner cable and he looked like he was about to fall over. Had to guess a price too.
