Can someone confirm that it's ok to use a star nut on the Premium Plus fork? I know star nuts are typically considered a no-no w/ carbon steerers, but I thought I had read that cannondale says it's ok w/ their forks. Also, do you have to use the extended-length cannondale top cap that's supplied with the fork, or can I use any generic top cap?. THANKS!

One can crush the steerer tube...

The compression cap for the Canny forks is really a cap and integrated aluminum sleeve of a length that approximates the stack height of most stems. This sleeve enforces the interior wall of the steerer tube and can potentially prevent the cracking of the steerer tube via ham-fisted, over-torque happy home mechanics.
