I sent Cannondale an e-mail a few months back asking about frame repainting. In their response they indicated they could provide decals. I used the contact info on their web page. Hope this helps.

I stripped a C-Dale frame of paint once and was able to buy decals at my local bike shop to replace them. They had them for sale as part of their stock. Check at your C-dale dealer.
good luck!

1 1/8 is considered stronger -- better strength to weight ratiobill

same idea as oversized tubing for frames.
Stupid questionmike mcmahon

OK, I undertand that the 1 1/8" steerer tube will increase the strength and, for example, allow a larger guy to run a carbon fork that would otherwise be too flexy: e.g., Ouzo Pro. So why not 1 1/4" or 1 1/2" steerer tubes?

Then all of the headset manufacturers would have to produce 4 sizes of headsets, and the tubing manufacturers would have to fabricate head tubes and steerer tubes for the 4 sizes. Its too much work!!

How much stiffer do we need? Also the headtube would probably be too thin to provide additional weight savings if it were any larger in diameter.

Stupid question; good answer. Thanks

The weight savings from going to a larger thinner walled section are real. Problem is that it becomes unpractical in terms of fragility.

in grz mnky fashion: telling someone he's wrong. Dude, where you been? I started worrying about you when I used the name of a Santa Cruz band (Camper van Beethoven) in a post and it went without any comment from you for over a week. Glad you're back.

The grzmnky posts more frequently on the components forum. Always knowledgeable. One of the guys I always check in on to see what they have to say.

Been off for a week - and away from _any_ computer. Thanks for the well wishes - I'm gushing....hell, my bike is gushing.

Missed your musical reference, sorry. My age must be showing.

Oh and about the "wrong thing", he is. What can I say? I 'spose I could sugar coat it and get all PC.....

Don't start sugar-coating now!mike mcmahon

As far as age goes, if I recall correctly from the "Who's on this Forum" thread (or some other thread), you're only a year older than I am.

Yeah, in my convaluted way thats what I meant to say. At what point does the headtube fail and become a safety issue. Also, many on this board have indicated that despite the larger diameter fork being as much as 100 grams heavier, the weight savings of the thinner and larger headtube more than offsets this. Even if the weight was equal you still have the benefit of increased stiffness.
