    Loose Part in my new Lefty Hybrid

    I recently got my 2014 F29 Black with Lefty Hybrid. I opened up the lefty to remove the volume spacer and to do a bearing flush (which was actually not necessary on my 2014 Lefty). Anyway, when I removed the upper collar I found this small loose part stuck in the grease on the underside of the split ring.

    Does anybody have any idea of what this is? If I were to guess, it might be a retainer clip for the bearing races, but I'm not sure. Do you think I need to send it back to Cannondale already? Oh, by the way, I've not ridden this thing at all yet!

    lol , now that's the Christmas spirit

    Personally I'd have a problem running a new fork with a lose part. That does suck but maybe Mendon can help.

    Yeah, I definitely had a problem with a loose part! I contacted Cannondale through the shop where I purchased the bike and they asked that I send it back in for examination. It's in transit right now so I haven't heard anything yet.
