I'm considering a cannodale road bike, especially the R-800 series. The make a sport version with 700x25c tires and a Cannondale HeadShok Si for the stem. Anyone have any experience with the Cannondale HeadShok Si? Any suggestions?

I will be riding in mostly in an urban/suburban setting. I'm kind of heavy- 6'3" 210 lbs.

Thanks.

The headshok works really well. If you intend to use your bike as a commuter, you'll probably like it. If you are looking for the lightest bike possible for your dollar you won't. I have a Cannondale Bad Boy with the headshok and love it.

I have a Bad-Boy too and love it too! Though I don't turn the shock on too much. It is nice to have available for whatever the road may be...

Perhaps you should post this message in the cyclocross section. The CX'ers use the XS800 & some of them pound the trails pretty hard & under those conditions, they are able to tell you how much of a pounding the Headshok unit can take. From my recollection, the reviews were favorable.
