    Does anybody know where to get a Carbon upper for an ELO lefty?

    I am searching for a new Carbon Upper body for my 2002 lefty ELO Alloy.
    I love the fork, believe it has some of the best internals cannondale ever put in and think it's time to show it some extra love.
    If anybody has any ideas on who may have spares like this in stock please let me know.

    No they were on the Scalpels in 2002, possibly more not sure which bikes had them, but I know my 2002 Scalpel 3000 had one.

    Did yours break or crack, or are you just trying to replace the older one with a newer one?

    I'm just trying to upgrade my Alloy version to Carbon, no real reason just a bit of a change, the Alloy is great but I thought hey, if I can save some weight add some bling, why not!
    That said I don't think there is a huge weight saving, but they look cool.

    maybe is easy to find a carbon ELO on ebay ... and to resell your alu ELO ...

    not the same fork... but carbon legs are hard to find ...i saw only 1-2 times on 4 years of ebay

    No, I mean your Carbon, some were blue as I think with the 3000, but I would like to source a polished one. Now I really am dreaming!!

    Hmmm, maybe I should get #168 down from the rafters for a photo session.....
    Interesting timing, speaking of Goodboys, I have a small (# indeterminate due to real life use) in for Lefty service right now. Ohhh, that carbon leg is soooooooo close.....
