    no lefty

    but thats beside the point, that bike is obviously not the top-of-the-line either..avid juicy 5 brakes

    pretty nice paint job in my opinion though

    It's a mid range European model, they get less models with a Lefty on than we do on this side of the Atlantic (exemple: only the top of the line Prophet 1 gets a Lefty). Poor euros, may god help their souls!

    There will be a Carbon Rush built up w/ the Rush 3 components to fill the huge gap in the 07 line up, between the 3 and the Carbon 2. I think the rep mentioned it would be around $3k

    You are still asking for trouble?
    I'm glad to be in North America because there is no way I'm touching a crappy two-legged fork anymore. I don't see the point to have a heavier yet much less stiff, less durable fork...

    Disagreeing with a situation is NOT asking for anything! Just stating one's opinion........

    I see you have stated your opinion on forks...................because everyone doesn't ride what you do.........so your fork doesn't work for me and others...I consider "trouble" a shop selling a customer a fork just because they can say it's innovative yet it doesn't fit the application for the customer. You did say you live in America correct? [/SIZE]

    You are right, to each his own... But why would specing a Fox fork would be more correct than a Lefty? By your logic, we should have the choice between both. Putting a Fox on the Rush is not better or worse than a Lefty, it's much worse for me but not to everyone. You should blame the shop in question then, not Cannondale. It's the shop that should help buyers choose the right bike for them.

    I agree some with you! What is the real reason Europe doesn't have Lefty? Cost can't be it![/SIZE]

    Cost is one reason but not the only one, the market is just not the same. With that said, higher end models are speced with Lefty over there too.
