    '04 carbon lefty changed?

    what's the deal with the new carbon lefty? Cannondale lists the weight as 3.5 lbs when for years they bragged it was 3 lbs! Did I read their web site incorrectly? mine weighed 3.1 on the UPS scale. I was thinking of upgrading my non lefty bike with the carbon elo. is the bottom piece still titanium? the new non ti bottom piece on the lower end models looks pretty cheap.

    Do you mean the 2004 models that have been out for nearly 12 months?
    I can't vouch for the weight but my lower is definitely titanium.

    ok I'm an idiot. nothing has changed. the 3.5 lb lefty isn't the ELO model. never mind!
