    What parts are needed?
    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:

    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
