Known Issues & Problems with Cannondale Products + Help, Solutions & Fixes

No idea what they were thinking with that kickstand. It's definitely OPI Cannondale but how did they overlook compatibly? What's more this frame was originally spec'd for 24" wheels!
 
I need to upgrade my fork. The 50mm of travel is insufficient. Is there a conversion kit available? I know I'd have to convert the steerer tube. I'd like to keep the wheels and brakes and buy a Fox fork off of CL. My hands are screaming in pain.
