    Seems to be a very common story.
    My LBS has only received a Prophet 600 and a F600 for '05 models.
    Last Wednesday the local Cannondale rep was in the shop he said they were having some problems getting some of the newer hi-tech components from the suppliers.
    He didn't/wouldn't say who or what...

    Keep us posted...

    Probably Shimano and I heard Avid had trouble supplying enough Juicy 7 (almost every brand have some models speced with them for 05).

    Lefty speed.....

    Hi,
    The 2005 lefty speed weighs in @ 3lbs/1360g & is offered in a lightweight air/oil cartridge design.
    You can choose from 2 different internals... the first being a Fox TerraLogic inerta valve design which remains locked out during normal pedaling but reacts to to soak up shock & vibration. Next choice is the DLR2 which has a trail tuned air spring system which is super responsive to small bumps, it provides a super smoooooth bottom out feel to soak up those big hits. The speed also has a 14-click external rebound adjustment & size-specific compression damping ...The choice is yours?????

    Reguardless of which Headshok (Ultra, '04 Lefty, '00 Lefty, DD60 etc...) you trade in for the upgrade the discount is the same.

    I inquired about the '05 Carbon Lefty Speed with Fox Terra Logic:
    $1,199.00 MSRP
    - 300.00 discount for upgrade
    $999.00 + tax final price of Lefty Speed

    If you're wanting to upgrade a used '04 dlr sell it on eBay and buy an '05 speed.
    Your LBS might give you a good deal if that's where you bought the bike originally.

    Buying parts from Cannondale seems to be a losing proposition.

    I'd buy the whole bike, and then part out on Ebay keeping what you want.

    $1199
    -$300

    That is $899 for the upgrade +tax if applicable. If it is even available. The info that I have says only the Lefty Speed Carbon DLR is available, it says nothing about the TerraLogic model.

    This totally depends on what type of DLR your seeking out?
    A carbon DLR will go for $650+ if it's in prime condition ..holds air pressure? no bearing contamination? spindle threads in prime shape? mileage? All these factors must be considered before making your decision?
