    Ideal rider weight for Jekyll 800

    On my 2004 Jekyll 800, I have a Fox Float R with adjustable air preload and the Lefty Max front with adjustable compression and rebound. With no apparent provision for adjustable air preload on the fork, does anyone know the optimal rider weight range for the stock fork? If a rider is 195 lbs, should he respring it?

    The Lefty Max is not air sprung, it uses a coil spring. Cannondale makes different rate of springs with color codes to match the rider's weight. The spring that is already in there depends of the bike size. The bigger the bike, the stiffer the spring.... The spring preload can be fine tuned with a hand adjustable collar but you have to open the top cap to access it.
