    looking at those linkage pictures, specifically the carbon clamping areas. i wouldn't be surprised to see full carbon lefty uppers on the horizon.

    Looks like a truly amazing bike, wouldn't consider buying one without a Lefty though. Have you tried conventional forks recently....down right dangerous!!!!!!!!!

    Cannondale maximized the center stiffness of the Jekyll by using clamped-axle pivots with bearings in the main frame (think fork through axle) rather than just having the bearings in the linkage which would let one side of the linkage to move independently from the other during twisting forces (cornering and mashing pedals).
    cool
    does it mean i get a new linkage/seatstays/of course chainstay and bearings for my rize
    i love cannondale

    this posting contains ironical issues ...
