    New question here. New Lefty Oliver on Cannondale Slate BLOCKED like a rigid fork???

    I just got a new Cannondale Slate out of the Box and the Oliver Lefty on it does not move one bit. I can do whatever i want its just stuck. Remove preassure with or without the lock it stays rigid as a rock. I already called in for Service but im curious what the Problem might be.

    Anyone an Idea. I guess something is blocking the needle bearings.

    Have not found anything similar to this on the Web. Either i am "lucky" and should start playing lottery or there was someone sleeping at the QS/Assembly at Cannondale.

    Have you toggled the lock/unlock button on top of the fork?

    wait.............Your cdale came out of a box? or was that just a figure of speech saying it is brand spankin new?

    I ask because rarely do you get a cannondale in a box. at least in the US, you normally have to got through a dealer. Said dealer should take it out of the box for you....
    Lead by my Lefty............... right down the trail, no brakes.

    The remote will likely need to be cut to length and bled. The default position is locked out. If its locked out, it means the remote is either not attached or full of bubbles

    What remote? Did they actually add an xloc lockout remote to the Slate with drop bars? Seems odd, where would the remote mount?

    there is no remote on the Slate, it was just somehow blocked, i do not know if the lockout on top of the lefty was the problem or something else locked it in place but its working now...
