#!markdown Hi Will, if you were saying Cannondales 1.5 steerer was a different size that was true as the Headshok and Lefty were on market long before the 1.5″ standard that Manitou pushed out in around '03\. Cannondale was a fairly early adopter of the 1.5 standard (with Manitou forks on Gemini and Prophet) but their forks didn't transition right away and their headtubes remained a slightly different size for a few years (old size). So it was a different stem and headset to run a Lefty vs say a Manitou Slider. Definitely a different situation as their oversized steerers and headtubes (to house headshok guts) pre-date 1.5″ by almost a decade. It would be like criticizing Cove or Trek for using 22mm Hayes disk mounts instead of the current flat mount standard on their old frames.
