    My 2002 Jekyll 3000

    A few upgrades over the years, but I just don't have the heart to part with the frame! I love the Ball Burnished Jekyll I think it's still the best looking Cannondale dual frame EVER!!! apart from what you can see I had FOX do a pro pedal upgrade last service and It has made a huge difference to the climbing, not quite as plush in general but it really makes up for any comfort lost in performance!

    Here's my age old 3000sx returning home from a week in Whistler (complete with a bit of blood on the frame . It's an old bike, but I love it to bits, and it's aged really well.

    It was almost completely stock until this year, now the cranks/BB, rings, cassette and seat have all been replaced. I currently have a set of Formula Oros in the mail (sooo stoked) to replace the Coda brakes, which have never really been up to snuff. Thanks to a recent bout with a tree the front wheel is now considerably more taco-shaped, so it looks like I need to pony up for the set of I9s I've been drooling over

    I just picked up an '03 jekyll 500, pretty much stock except for some avid mech. discs and upgraded pedals. Its my first fs bike and it's great, but Ive noticed a pretty solid dent on the non- drive side of the swingarm, not sure if it was me or the previous owner. I'm worried about the possibility of it failing and leaving me without a ride- anybody have a spare arm from a compatible '03 or later frame or know where I can find one? (mine is a Large so one from a M,L, or XL) Is it possible to use the arm from a later model? I love the bike and dont want to be left without a ride if it decides to quit.

    Well, this is my 2002 Jekyll 2000. I got bored in 05 when I was upgrading the components which thus resulted in a shiny new Deore brake on the front and a vintage Magura Louise on the rear. I decided to keep using my 02 Rocky Slayer for 2yrs as it worked fine and needed no upgrading.

    Wouldnít you rather have flames like this? Nicer than ball burnished.

    Very nice! Many times I was going to swap out my Jelyll 2000 for something more up to date but I keep putting it off because it's so plush. I recently had my rear shock "Pushed" and I got even more hooked.

    [SIZE=2]Thanks, Iím glad you like it, itís a real head turner on the trails.

    Why donít you strip the bike down, get it a new kit, and then use it until the frame needs replacing and then get something good like a Yeti 575.

    Or there are many bikes out there now that are just as plush as the Jekyll and some conpanies are now learing how to make good value bikes.

    2004 Jekyll 400

    It may be old, but hey, so am I!


    Add-ons include a Fox Vanilla 130RLC fork, Avid BB7's, and a La-Z-Boy saddle.

    Oh, and Ergon grips and Titec bar-ends, but those are kinda beside-the-point.

    Thanks!. That picture was taken at N. Clinton River park in Sterling Heights, MI. They have a nice little overlook deck there. The river had just recently lost its ice crust. I was running through some snow, but it was mostly clear pavement and frozen mud that day; Not an exciting ride, but scenic.

    Rear Shock options for the Jekyll

    Does anyone know if there are any rear shock options for the Jekyll? I hear that the older GT STS and LTS shocks might fit but I dont know for sure.

    Sorry about my dumb post - tried in one other section, but this thread may be my only hope: I have a year 2000 Jekyll 900Sx with a Fox Float RC shock. I can get a Fox 07 Float R 7.875x2 from Santa Cruz for a decent price. Anybody know it the Float R might fit the Jekyll? I have no idea what 7.875 x 2 means. Thank you!

    Jekylls were frame/shock specific to cannondale as it doesn't have mounting holes at the front. If you can't get a new one from Cannondale then your best bet is ebay or possibly here. Or you could send yours in to Push for re-valving. Nothing else will work.

    Those aren't available any more, so I skipped over them....Could have a 28lb bike without 'em, but they are my crutch.!

    ... and if we just ... 2003 Jekyll 600

    Great Bike. I was wondering if anyone on here has had problems with the rear shock mount where it connects to the rear end? I just had my bike serviced and the mechanic said the holes in the rear that connect the shock have been ovaled out. is this a frame warranty issue, or a common problem? Other than this I LOVE this bike. I've gotten 4 years of epic riding out of it. Upgrades I've done are, Full XT, Hayes nine brakes, Easton riser bar, Lizard Skins, Kenda Nevegals, WTB saddle, and possibly more to come.
