It sounds almost like a fairytale, and I belive it is:-)!
I have had my Lefty SL (2007) fork for about 8 months now... it startet of really bad, with the fork out of the box it was running like crap, then a recall notice and Cannondale Europe checked it out, and changed the oil and seals - but still not running real smooth! Unfortunatly the Cannondale mechanics who serviced my fork, must also have been to busy doing "damage-control" on a lot of forks wich was affected by the recall notice, and didnt' take the time to do it proberly, because it was still not real running smooth - better but not real smooth:-)! And it was also noticable that there was a little bit of air trapped in the cartridge chamber, and the rebound was almost non-existing!
Well now to the point... yesterday I serviced the fork my self, did a proper oil-refill and of course getting air out of the system. But the big breaktru was when I changed the Cannondale oil specs from 2,5wt to 10wt... WOW what a big difference!
I have never ridden a 1290 kilogram fork as smooth as this... it almost feels like a 3000 gram Fox fork! Fantastic:-)!
So in the future I go for 10wt oil... by the way I weigh 74 kilo, and run a blue spring:-)!
