    You can download the manual for your specific Lefty model from Cannondale's website.

    More important than the recommended pressure for your weight is the correct amount of sag. Two people of the same weight may need different shock pressures to achieve the same amount of sag (height and body type play into this, as does your bike's geometry).

    I found that I had to go about 10-15 lbs. lower than recommended by C'dale to get the correct sag on my 2009 Carbon SL. I also found that with this shock, which has no compression damping adjustment, the comp damping was best with the correct sag (air pressure will affect the compression damping).

    I can barely get my mouth around it.
