    You would need to change the whole damper which isn't hard to do if you have the correct tools. I would gladly swap out with you.

    How hard is it to change the Battery on a 2001 ELO Lefty? Is this something a total NOOB could do or should i have a bike shop do it? Sorry if it is a NOOB question.

    Thanks in advance,
    Brian

    very easy operation

    you need a 36mm wrench only

    check the manual on cannondale.com on support zone , lefty section

    Cannondale Factory Rebuild

    I am being told that Cannondale will no longer service my 2005 Carbon 140.
    Is this true and if so what are my other options?

    thanks

    guys, need your support... I have Super Castle tool (like this: Cannondale Super Castle Lefty + Headshok Cartridge Removal Tool - KH031 - CannondaleExperts.com ) and Lefty 130 PBR Carbon. Today I have tried to remove damper cartridge from my lefty but I wasn't able to do this, because this tool can't reach the damper itself, it looks like the shaft of the damper is longer then the tool and the rebound not does not let the tool reach the damper.
    Hope I described the problem so as you can understand

    Yes, I have released all the air from the fork and pushed all the way up the fork. As I wrote it looks like the shaft of the damper is longer then the tool is.

    Perhaps I should take out the rebound knob to fit the super castle tool? Should I?

    A quick question to anyone with experience. I need to change my lefty air filter boot. Got a small nic in it.

    Is it best to remove the main boot or is there a way to slip the filter boot over or under the main boot?

    no way, you'll need to disassemble the lefty.

    Thanks Vasiliyg

    So you are saying even with the boot removed, the filter boot will not stretch over the brake mounts?

    I won't need to replace the actual filter (sponge), only the rubber outer.

    you can try to do the same with the filter cover:
    boot change - YouTube

    personally I haven't try, of course if you take apart the lefty it will be easiest part

    Does anyone know the A/C lengths of say 26" Lefty vs. 29" Lefty? I have a Flash 29er and thinking of doing a 650b Rush and wanted to know how much geo would change if I used the Lefty of my Flash 29er. Thanks!

    There are 3 A-to-C lengths for the 3 types of modern Lefty's.

    470mm = 100mm (26) / 70mm (29) - aka Lefty "Speed"
    490mm = 120mm (26) / 90mm (29) - aka Lefty "Ultra"
    510mm = 140mm (26) / 110mm (29) - aka Lefty "Max"

    Those numbers are for PBR/XLR setups...

    So there really is no such thing as a 29er specific Lefty since all 3 can be (and are) used on 29er bikes. I think the Flashes come with Ultras set to 90mm. I think the Rushes came with 110mm DLR2 Leftys, so the Ultra will be 10mm taller with the same sized wheel. The 650b front wheel will make the front even taller.

    I'm a big 650b fanatic so I say definitely give it a shot. However, you might want to keep your eyes open for a 100mm Lefty Speed if you feel the Ultra makes the front end too slack.

    Thanks for the response! I'm really interested in the 650b. Do you have any experience running the Lefty Ultra on a Rush?

    I have my eyes on a Lefty Speed on eBay but as you know even used ones aren't cheap. Using the one I have on my Flash would save money but I do worry about messing with the geo of the Rush (which I like a lot).

    this looks like the place.
    I am building a 2007 Scalpel, size XL, from the frame up.
    I need to findout the size of the headstock, which brake sets are best to go with,
    rims, tires, etc.
    Is it worth it to spend the cash on the Lefty Fork, or would a regular Rock Shox fork work as well?

    I'm 6'5" and 225, and want to make sure i give myself enough room to use my legs, so the best size for the cranks, rims and all would be great advice.

    The minute details, for headstock, forks . . . it's all going to be important to hear

    Thanks for your help, looking forward to building this bike getting out there!

    You could have just spammed the test forum with 5 or 10 posts which is exactly for getting your post count up so you can start a thread on your own...

    Just saying.

    Good luck in getting the Scalpel together. Post pictures when it's done.

    a what's what of Lefty's - DLR, XLR, PBR, OPI, etc?

    Hey all.
    I'm trying to get a grasp of the various models & features of Lefty forks. Can anyone recommend a blog or website that explains the various models of Lefty forks (or chopsticks)?

    Thanks.

    650b for 2009 110mm lefty rlc

    Hello all,
    Sorry to revive an old thread, but looking for some help on fitting a 650b wheel to a 2009 lefty rlc 110mm. I've searched a bit on my own, but haven't found any definitive answers. So:
    1. Will a 650B wheel work in this fork without any spacers etc?
    2. If not, is there any spacers available or has anybody made any that work well?
    thanks!!

    Anyone has picture of the "recommended" rerouting for the brake cable underneath the down tube.
    I find that the out of the box setting (well the one set by my shop at least) is weird and makes the hose way too long and grinding on the frame.
    I have seen people talking about rerouting it underneath the frame but i never could get a glance at where exactly they would put it through.
    I'm thinking of buying Ragley Triple Cable Guide Kit to fit and would really like if someone could post picture of their "better" routing.
    Thanks,
    JF

    Lefty question: toolset to service c-dale with Lefty on my own

    Hey guys, I'm taking my c-dale flash carbon to Afghanistan where I'm stationed at the moment. Of course, the local service shops won't have great ideas what to do with my sexy bike if something goes wrong. And that's fine, I will learn how to service it myself, but here is the question: what tools would you recommend to buy to be ready for anything?

    Thanks so much!

    I'm new on here and planing to join the 'Lefty club'. I'm hoping that a few you knowlegable lefty heads are up for a game of 'what's the year'

    I'm trying to figure out what year this lefty speed is: (edit I can't post a link to the eBay listing so heres the title: (New) Cannondale Lefty Speed Fork Black (100mm)


    I have contacted the seller and he is trying to find any records he might have but I though I might burn the candle from both ends and see if one of you guys might know what year its from.

    The seller has included some photos and the serial number DLR0521742 (Could it be an 05 from the serial? I think that would be too easy though . . . . )

    decided to post my question here so as not to create a new thread:
    I own a 2009 Lefty Max 130 PBR and after numerous bearing resets outer collar started to wear out and I decided to replace it with a new one. Manual says that I need KH045/046 but I can't find it anywhere. Can you guys advise if I can use one of these as a replacement for KH045: Levers, Knobs, Collars, + Adjustments - CannondaleExperts.com

    If I were looking for a new upper collar for my Lefty PBR Max from 2009 (on my Rize 3), I would probably start with the KH064 here: Cannondale Lefty Upper Collar for PBR OPI Alloy Structure - KH064 - CannondaleExperts.com

    I guess that C'dale probably updated the part. I hope it still fits the older model.

    forgot to mention that I have a Carbon version of Max 130.
    I wonder why C'dale differ collars between alloy and carbon lefties? they both mount on alloy thread?

    Oh, then try the KH063 instead:
    Cannondale Lefty Upper Collar for PBR Carbon Structure - KH063 - CannondaleExperts.com

    I would send MendonCycleSmith a PM to see if he agrees. He's the expert. I just pretend.

    DRSpalding, thanks for support )

    can somebody else confirm that this would be the right choice? because it will take about three weeks to deliver it to my place and I will be very disappointed if when the collar will finally arrive it won't fit my lefty

    My Lefty 130 MAX released and went 90 degrees when popping up over a small rock on a climb today.
    I am very thank-ful this happened on a climb, for if this had happened on the downhill I would have been toast.
    The fork was fully tuned just 3 months ago.
    The LBS says they have never seen the like before, how about any of you?
    Thanks.

    So I've got a question about swapping brakes on my 09 Caffeine 29er single speed. Just bought it a few days ago, and the brakes don't seem powerful at all. I'm 220 lbs, and the brakes are the Avid Elixir 3's. I can barely lock up the rear - so not nearly strong enough, and the front - even when mashed on, only brings me to a stop after rolling a few feet. I'd like it to be strong enough to throw me over the bars if I'm not careful.

    I've read some reviews that these brakes aren't terribly powerful. And I really need some good stopping power for me and the 29er. What's the best solution here? Upgrade the brakes? New bigger rotors? I've got a 185 on the front, 160 on the rear. And if I do upgrade to a bigger rotor, which I may do anyways - even if I upgrade brakes, what will I need? Where would I get spacers, etc.

    Any help would be awesome!

    I'm also wondering the same. I have an alloy Speed DLR2, is it possible to stick in the a PBR 120/140 damper ( red ) with some change on the upper seals ?

    Can anybody tell me whether travel on a PBR'd fork is adjustable, or just changeable from 140 to 110 and back? I'm looking at converting an alloy Lefty Max to PBR, then adding 321 clamps. I figure with a short headtube, I may be able to get some travel back vs. a fork with fixed clamps, as I can raise the adjustable clamps up as high as they'll go.

    it is not adjustable, you can only install spacers if you need to reduce travel of the fork.

    can I run the OPI stem with a Lefty in a 44mm headtube? as long as I use the Si headset cups and have a headtube of 122mm it's good, right?

    Just wanted to give kudos to mendoncyclesmith for their quick service! I sent my Lefty DLR to Craig for an overhaul. Had it back within a week and it is butter smooth.

    Thanks Craig

    Lefty Brake Mount adapter 160 to 180mm

    I'm wanting to increase braking power on my Tallboy with Lefty which is a PBR 130Max and a 160mm rotor front and rear. I'm using XTR 975 calipers with M06 Metal brake pads, but just don't have enough stopping power at times. Wanted to increase the front rotor size to 180mm, but wasn't sure on the caliper adapter needed.

    From what I can tell, I think I need the Cannondale KP176 adapter, but wanted to confirm with you guys? The brake mount bolts fasten from the side, unlike vertical as on the newer Scalpels.

    I'm looking for 100mm 29er axle to crown length and rake.
    There's a lot of different numbers floating around, but I'm not sure what to trust. Is A to C 490mm?

    Lefty ELO seals/replacements

    Hi, just a quick one after breaking about every single bit of my ELO working it all out, ive managed to loose from the inner damper shaft, one of the two little black nylon split washers. These sit on the area where the brass plunger and motor is housed. can these be replaced with a o ring rubber seal? and what do they do?

    I got a new seal set from Leisure lakes did all the o rings that were like for like but have loads left so wondered if any of these are upgraded or replacement for the split washers

    Thanks

    rlc lefty fat tire?

    I have a 110mm 2009 lefty rlc. I understand you can't put travel limiters on it, and was wondering if a 26" with fat tire/rim would have enough clearance.
    Thanks!
