I have a second hand Lefty, about a year old I'd say. I'd never taken the front wheel off before but di the other WE. The threads feld bad when I took it off and it just wouldn't screw back on again.
I took the lefty into the cannondale dealer - they extracted the screw from the hub so that we could try and screw it in to the spindle.
MY GOD! I've never seen anything like it! The screw dropped into the ''threaded'' hole on the spindle, with clearance. Although there appeared to be threads there, there was nothing for it to hold on to. I cannot figure out how the threads could possibly have been stripped this badly, honestly it was like throwing a sausage down an alleyway!
Has anyone else heard of such a problem?
I've got to have the whole bottom bit of the fork replaced - here goes 200 euro!
