Hello all, I ride a caad9 and was looking to upgrade the ultra stock fork with losing some weight being the main goal of the upgrade...I've heard that the cannondale slice carbon fork is a good choice from both a weight and identical rake perspective... There would be no compatibility issues with a caad9 frame and a Slice fork right?

look into alphaQ forks not sure if they are still on ebay for $100 bucks but I LOVE mine.

its lighter, much stiffer for my 200lb self.

Either Alpha or Easton fork will do.

I looked in to the easton ec90slx fork but am leaning towards the cannondale one...there would be no fit problems correct?

Make sure there is no crack unless you know the history otherwise it's a risky buy.

Your always taking a risk when you buy used carbon. You have no idea what the previous owner put it through.

Go to a bike shop that deals with Cannondale. My lbs offered me a new uncut Premium for 150.

What model CAAD9 do you have, a 6? Yours has the Slice Ultra? I have a 5 and it came with a Slice premium full carbon so I wouldn't think there would be any compatibility problems.
