    Anyone here had a structural failure of a Jekyll or Lefty?

    I'm just curious to hear if anyone here has broken a Jekyll of the current design and/or seriously broken a Lefty? So far my '03 Jekyll 1000 has worked fairly flawlessly for me (minus a since-rebuilt factory-flawed damper cartridge in the Lefty that evacuated itself on a Big Bear trip). Given that every bike I've owned in the past dozen years has met it's end through one structural failure or another, I'm just wondering how long these rigs last?

    Do the carbon leftys seem to hold up as well as the aluminum models?
