    Lefty with Fox valve or Manitou SPV

    Picked up the 2005 Cannondale book from the bike shop today. I knew about the Lefty with the Fox Intertial valve already, 110mm o' travel, but there is also a longer travel Lefty with the Manitou stable platform valve inside, like 130 mm of travel. That one is on the top of the line Scalpel. Kind of cool.

    I think it's on the PROPHET (1000-4000) that you get the lefty MAX SPV.

    On the Scalpel TEAM you get the lefty w/ INERTIA valve. The other Scalpel have a standard lefty DLR2 or something like that...

    BigJay is right.

    The SPV Lefty is on the Prophet, and it has 140mm travel, up from 130. Carbon leg also.

    The Lefty struts on the Scalpel are 110 mm travel, with InertiaValve on the 4000 and DLR2 on the rest.


    All of those forks are available as part of a trade in program, btw.

    damion, how exactly does this trade in program work? do you have to trade in a cannondale fork to get a new cannondale fork? or can you trade in any suspension fork for a new lefty? i ask this because i read on this board how a guy traded in a mongoose frame for a new cd frame. generally, without giving any exact numbers, what kind of percentage do you get for the trade in towards the new fork?

    30% or so is the discount.

    It really depends on the dealer level that you are going through. Yes, you have to trade in Cannondale fork, and you pay all shipping and related $.

    I think you also have to be the original owner, is that right?
    Ride dangerously. Take chances.

    Perhaps...

    The paperwork for the trade in program says that only the frame's original owner is eligible, but it says nothing about the fork trade in.
