    My 2001 Jekyll 500. All stock. Battleship fade. I want to start upgrading it... where should I start?

    The frame... no no just kidding, I love the Jekyll. I would start with wheels and changing to full disc setup, XTR dual controls can be had dirt cheap on chain reaction cycles if you are happy to not have the latest version.

    Doing that would lose the reflectors which are a good start and I'd also ditch the plastic bit of crap that supposedly stops the chain going into the spokes at the rear cassette, just have your stop screws set right..

    I'd go clipless pedals, they make a huge difference to power and control, then I'd lose the saddle bag and get a camelbak or the like.

    post updates as you go!

    I agree with sp3000....brakes will make a huge difference but prob apart from wheels the most expencive....after that anything else is prety affordable....

    Heres my latest upgrade....a pair of MINT lefty Crossmax sl i got off ebay for.... ....£160.... ....Stripped them last week and even the bearings are mint....they also came with a pair of Continental Mountain King Tubeless with about 90% wear left but i prefer my Hutchinsons....BARGAIN....



    I can get round to finishing the tiling of in the kitchen now....bike comes first though....iv got my prioritys right....

    Thanks matey....

    I also put some Mpart cable guides on the fork....much tidyer than cable ties....

    http://www.madison.co.uk/productinfo...catref=BRT0303

    The rubber rings are to small to go around a lefty so i used black elasticated ponytail hair bands....works a treat and you can change the color if you wish....

    Missing a bushing from Jekyll shock bolt??

    Guys, am loving the Jekyll admiration will post some pics of my trusty 2003 Jekyll 1000 steed shortly. In the mean time it seems to have developed some clunky movement between the bolt which goes through the shock reducer and the reducer itself. (i.e. play in the bolt where the shock meets the swingarm).

    Did there used to be a bushing in there which has gone AWOL?? Just metal spacers in there now and a couple of mm's of metal-on-metal movement.

    If anyone can undo their bolt and take a look I'd appreciate it - no upper reducer on the ol' Jekyll to compare it to thanks to the threaded shock!

    Thanks!

    The "Clunky" may be your shock thats loose and the collar just needs tightening up....

    Thanks quackers, however the only detectable movement is between the end of the shock piston (the reducer) and the bolt which runs through it to connect it to the swingarm. Basically if I left the rear of the bike I feel (and hear) the bolt move within the reducer and likewise when I lower it back onto the ground.

    The same thing must be happening every time the swingarm changes direction when riding, which can't be good

    ...am suspecting that the two silver coloured "spacers" (for want of a better word) inside the reducer used to have some kind of layer of bushing around them which has worn away but would be good to compare with someone elses.

    The whole assembly on my bike (bolt, spacers, shock) is metal on metal on metal now - is yours different?

    Sounds like the bushings may have worn or the bolt has and is causing play....is the bolt loose going into the nut?....

    there is a bushing that is pressed into the shock piston end, then the two metal reducers are pressed into that, i believe the bushing you need is called a DU bushing and is pretty cheap.

    Thanks guys, much appreciated will see if my LBS can order new bushings etc. for me.

    Lots of comments going around my work now about me posting huge photos of my nuts online

    qwackers noticed you've put some Crosstrails on your Jekyll, have just ordered some 2010 ones - you happy with them?

    My Jekyll finally broke! Bottom bracket/main pivot sheared off the front triangle. Can't complain as I probably had 6k-8k miles on the bike. If anyone if looking for Jekyll shocks, I now have 2 excellent condition Answer Minute rear shocks, with the correct sized yoke and lockring (they were acquired within the last two years, one never used, one with about 250 miles on it). PM if interested, otherwise they hit the 'bay.

    The front der is 3-4mm too high...but clean bike for sure. Do you really run that saddle height? (looks like 8-10 of drop from saddle to bar)

    Perhaps the front derailleur is a little bit too high, because before ther was monted a 44 T chainring. The position of the saddle is not correct on the picture yet, it actually is 30mm lower when I ride.

    Guys I'm looking to replace my stock Fox RL on my '03 1000. The lockout no longer works but shock overall still works fine. Anyone selling a unit? PM me.

    ....and don't tell me just to pedal smoother can't do that, I'm a masher.

    Bought the bike new in October 2002, run 48t big ring, no off-roading asphalt only, this is how it looks in 2011.

    To see it on You Tube.. type in 'Cannondale Jekyll 800'

    It's been a superb bike !

    Love Jekyll's... some beauties out there !

    It's 2003 Jekyll built with left over parts. I have had 4 Jekylls and this one, for some reason, rides the best. This is my loaner bike for buddies that don't have a bike to ride.

    800 Not sure what yr

    I've had this forever it seems. It's like an old friend.

    I've done a bunch of work on it over the years. As things broke, I tried to get the best replacement I could. Took this pic 4 yrs ago or so. Lots of new stuff not shown. I'll try to shoot a new pic.

    Moto FR on a Jekyll?

    Has anyone ever tried mounting a Headshok Moto FR on a Jekyll frame? I figure someone must have tried it, but i've never seen one. It seems like it would be a good solution for a little more travel than a standard headshok fork and much cheaper than a Lefty. If you've done it, let's see pictures.

    I'm looking at a 2004 Jekyll 16.5 inch frame. I'm 5'10" and I wear jeans with an inseam of around 30"-31". Would this be a good fit for me, or would it be too small?

    When you wear jeans our size, there's no such thing as too small.

    Here is my Jekyll



    To be honest, I don't know too much about it. If you can offer any info I'd be VERY appreciative. Looking online I'm guessing its a 01-03 3000 SL.

    I traded a car for it and another MTB about 4 years ago. Yes a car. 1990 Mazda Miata with 200k miles that ran decent but needed work.

    Since I've owned the bike I have replaced the 32T chainring with a Blackspire Ring, rear cassette with a SRAM PG-990, chain Shimano XTR, and rebuilt the Fox Shock.

    I'm at a slight cross roads with it. I live in SJ and have done some lighter offroad rides and more recently have put some slicks on it, locked the suspension, and done around 250 miles on the road plus the Philly to Ocean City MS Ride.

    I want to get a road bike (CAAD 10) and use the Jekyll the way it was meant to be used. The drivetrain is sloppy, the brakes have lost their power and the lefty needs some love. I am thinking of doing a total rebuild. X9 Drivetrain (2012 New), Formula ORO K24 or Juciy 7 Brakes Used from the Bay, and I have no idea what to do with the lefty...

    What do you think restore her or sell it off and get something newer?
