    Question for lefty XLR owners

    Just a simple question for XLR owners, has anyone rotated the gold dial on the Xloc remote? I know the manual specifically says "DO NOT ROTATE THE GOLD DIAL! This is not an adjustment when used with Lefty. This dial has been set at the factory." But it can't be that big of a deal if you were to fiddle with it would it? anyone know what it does? thanks!

    I fiddled with it and it didn't seem to do anything. I don't remember that it changed the locking
    point.

    Mendon explained what it does on a Lefty in another thread. Here's the beef:

    It has no designed function on the Leftys, not to be confused with it's impact on a Rock Shox product, where it does adjust blow off threshold.

    In short, it does something (makes the lockout not work), but not what you're thinking it does.
    There was words that Cannondale and RockShox were working on a slimmed down, lighter X-Loc lever for Cannondale that has no knob but I haven't seen it yet.
