    2011 Lefty Max Carbon

    Cannondale still has the long travel Lefty in the lineup but none of the 2011 bikes come with it. I find that strange.

    It seems they've always been prone to using traditional forks on their longer travel bikes.

    Perhaps Cannondale recognizes that since the Prophet will be around for many years they wanted suitable replacement parts?

    Hmmmm is the Carbon Max lighter than the alum version I have?
    Forks are for eating, Lefty's are for racing,

    Anyone have an idea on how to do bearing resets with the new Max and its remote lockout lever? Seems like it would be a pain, but maybe there's a trick to it?

    On paper the Max w/40 travel is not appropriate for the new Jekyll with its 150mm travel but there are going to be people that want to put that on to drop some weight.

    As for the XLR reset, it is the same as a PBR except the entire rebound knob slides out when you undo the outter collar.

    Ah, I see. I figured they wouldn't make it too difficult.

    I can see putting a Lefty on the new Jekyll instead of a standard Fox fork, although it might change the geometry just a bit. But I guess for climbing being 10mm less it would help out; especially with a 140 xlr remote lockout. I bet Cannondale thought about that when they designed it and being so close to the Lefty Max in travel they found a way to just "drop on the Lefty"

    I guess this proves that the Max fits on the new Jekyll...
