    Older Leftys Vs. Newer Leftys

    I have a Carbon Lefty ELO off of my 2002 Scalpel 3000 that I have always taken care of and it works well. I now have it on a Rush. I'm pretty happy with the performance, but I've never ridden any of the newer Leftys. How different do they feel? How would you describe the performance difference? How about build and durability, which is better?
    Is it worth upgrading? Thanks for any info.

    i have the same carbon ELO on my Scalpel and have a Carbon DLR2 on my Rush and the newer lefty feels far more plush and in control than the ELO.

    My friend at Cannondale that looks after my ELO fork says it is one of the best made lefty's ever, he said it's much better to work on than the new ones and the build quality seems better too.
    As for performance I guess you get 10mm extra travel on the new ones.
