    Lefty Question

    I ride a Cannondale lefty 29er (DLR2 fork) and am a bigger guy (250+) -- the bike is ~2 years old with ~1,000 miles on it. After doing a couple of races recently and seeing some of the pictures afterwards, it looks like I lean forward quite a bit, which may be related to the feeling I often get of my fork bottoming out. I have been checking the air in the fork before each ride -- it has been consistenly at 150psi (per my LBS suggestion). After doing some research online, I am wondering if I need a stiffer negative spring. Has anyone else dealt with this? Or have any thoughts? Is this is a repair I can do myself -- or should I take it to a shop? Any idea of repair cost?

    It might just be a simple geometry thing. How tall are you? 250 says 6'+ and then some! Maybe you just need a stem that is shorter with a bit more rise to get you upright. I have the old Lefty MAX TPC 140 which has a spring. I don't know about air giggies.
