I've been riding an '09 Rize 4 for about a year. It's my first full-suspension bike, and I love it. I've been contemplating replacing the Fox fork with a Lefty. The Fox is great, nothing wrong with it. This is mainly for fun and because I lusted heavily after the Rize 3 but didn't have the money for it at the time.
So, basically I'm asking for some opinions. Do I roll with Lefty Max w/PBR or spring for a Lefty Max Carbon. I'm guessing that the new 2010 Leftys with 140mm travel would fit my bike, but I don't want to assume anything. I'm also guessing that my headset will undergo an overhaul to accommodate the new fork (Cannondale uses some kind of spacer in the headset to fit a standard fork, right?).
So, I'd love the stiffness of the Lefty and would be great to lose some bike weight in the process. You guys think this is a good idea and what details might I be overlooking with the installation?
