    Lefty 80mm fork psi

    Just curious what you guys are running your psi at on your 29er lefty forks and also what your weight is? Im 5'10, 160pounds running right at around 100psi on my lefty.

    105 PSI. 160lb. Just barely getting full travel (measure bumper gap inside fork after ride).

    I run a bit firmer on the hardtail than I would on a full suspension to offer a balanced ride.

    Nice! I run the same set up. For the exact same reason. Too plush up front and it feels sluggish.

    5'10 and 165-170 lbs I run between 105 and 110. I like the front end a little firmer on the hardtail.

    I have an '08 80mm on my 29. I weigh around 230lbs (104kgs) geared up. When I first got the bike with the stock negative spring, I was running around 160psi, but still occasionally bottomed out. Once I had the proper negative spring installed, I was running around 150psi. In Nov. '09 when the fork was sent to Cannondale for the 3rd time, it was upgraded to Solo Air. Since then I run about 170-175psi and it feels good.

    Just pumped up the SL to 105 psi last night because I felt the sag had increased. I'm 175-180lbs so perhaps I should go a little higher then.
