    Lefty travel adjusments

    Buying an 09 Lefty speed 110 mm travel sl carbon fork for 29er, is there a way to reduce the travel to 80mm?
    Thanks

    I have a few questions.

    1) Is it a 130mm lefty that is made into a 110?
    2) Or is 110mm for 26" wheels?
    3) Got any pictures?

    If your answer is #2, then its pretty easy. There is a kit available from cannondale that includes everything to change the necessary parts on the damper to make the for 80mm for 29ers. If you are going to to this yourself you will also need to buy a Cannondale Castle tool (sorry no part number, but someone will have it) and you will also need a 1.5mm allen wrench, a 10mm box wrench, and a Shimano external BB tool.

    You may be able to find guidence in this thread:

    If the information contained in this sentence is completely accurate, it's already 80 mm.

    Fair, at first when I read it I thought of it thought of it differently.
