    New question here. A Lefty Speed DLR2 110 Question

    Hello!

    Sorry to bother all of you with so many questions these days. But if you had noticed -somehow- in the forum, I have 2 projects to finish:

    1- Turning my F4000 (1999) which I'm riding as XC to a BadBoy
    2- Building my F4000 SL (2006) frame as an XC

    1st mission is will be very close to be accomplished when I deliver the Mavic Open Pro rims in 2-3 weeks.
    2nd one will be starting when I deliver the lefty hub which's on the way from Nevada.

    Now, what I'd like to ask and learn is, I'm planning to use the Lefty Speed DLR2 (the one with bonded clamps) on my 2nd project (the '06 F4000 SL).

    Today, I ordered the "Cannondale Seal kit, Speed 110" (Cannondale replacement part code: KF202) so as to be able to mount the steerer tube of the Lefty Speed DLR2 on the head tube.

    But I wonder if I've ordered the right thing or not.
    What else do I need for the mounting of this steerer tube?


    Thanks for your kind help.

    You ordered a seal kit to overhaul your DLR2's cartridge.....that kit has nothing to do with mountig a steerer tube.
    Just post a pic of what exactly you have and then we can tell you what you need in order to finish it.

    I'm guessing he's talking about the "shower cap" that covers the top headset bearing, and sits under the stem......

    I have made my F5000 into a XC brawler. Same build with 2010 Lefty Carbon Speed.

    Finally finished...my WW Cannondale Team Hardtail (16.65 lbs)

    Hey cdalemaniac, thanks for your concern.

    It's good to know what I just purchased. Wrong buy. But it taught me something

    Here are the pics to tell you what I exactly mean.
    I was thinking what I ordered would help me in fitting the steerer tube into the head tube.

    What should I need to solve this problem?

    Thanks.

    All you need are the 2 headshok bearings that will fit inside your SI head set cups.
    Also, since you have the lefty with bonded clamps you need the seal that goes on top of the upper bearing.
    This is what you need to buy:

    The seal goes between the top lefty clamp and the upper bearing.
