    Here's mine. It's just about done.




    It WAS a 2002 Jekyll 500, but there's not much original left on it. Highlights:

    Truvativ Hussevelts
    Rohloff Speedhub
    Float R (PUSHed last week)
    Mavic XM819
    Woodman LFY front hub
    Avid Juicys
    Lefty DLR
    Conti Vertical USTs

    I sure do love it. I'd cry if it left me...

    Aren't Jekyll's GREAT rides? There was so many bikes I tested before saying get me a Jekyll. I fell in love with it. I can't wait to I get my new 2005 Prophet 2000. I'm keeping my Jekyll and then again I may sale it to someone who can hammer with me. Keep the Jekyll and Prophet family. Nice bikes boys. Keep this thread alive with Jekyll love. Show them JEKYLL'S!!!

    Here's mine...

    2004 Jekyll 1000, pretty much stock except for the "custom" scratches I have added along the trail, funny how that happens when you actually ride it like it was intended to be.

    One for my girl...

    Got this on eBay tonight...

    My girlfriend has been faithfully following me on the paved trails for the past several weeks....
    on a '97 Rockhopper rigid w/no front suspension...

    Last weekend we went to the dirt trails at Huntsville state park and she wouldn't hear of staying home...
    without a peep, whimper, cry or curse...
    she took the tree roots...
    she took the drops...
    she took the washouts...
    she just smiled kept on going while she knew i was watching...
    but the shear anguish on he little face when she thought I wasn't...
    after seeing the blisters and black n blue bruises on her arms, calves, thighs, glutes...
    and other parts we won't even talk about...
    I decided it was time for me to take action...
    if she was going to subject herself to this kind punishment for my benifit...
    she should be on a ride worthy of her commitment and fortitude...
    and one that was much softer on those parts we didn't talk about earlier

    Plus it's her birthday in two weeks

    That's so cool. I just bought my 5 year daughter her 1st bike about a month ago. She loves her new Giant Taffy bike, with those white tires and all. Everytime I'm out in my garage wrenching on my ride, there's my little girl sitting on her bike with helmet on and ready to go ride. It's great. Get this she actually watch the Tour with me and liked it. I was impressed big time. I'm just a dad that loves my family and my toys.

    Man they have some cool bikes for kids now!!!!!


    White tires and all!!!

    Just so everyone knows I was actually talking about my 40+ year old girlfriend.

    My 13 year old son only child rides a custom '02 Scalpel 800.

    Sometimes I believe I have as much of an addiction buying new toys as I do riding them

    2004 Jekyll 3000 frame (warranty replacement for Raven frame) with mix of new and old components. Started to weigh all the components as I assembled the bike, but I missed a few (Lefty MAX, brake rotors) and some of them have been updated since (pedals, etc...)

    Since the pictures I have replaced the wheels with a set of Cannondale 30th anniversary (UST with the polished Hugi hub), polished the seatpost and replaced the pedals.

    Here is the component / weights list. Measure on a bathroom scale (not the most precise!), the bike comes in a 28 LBS (note that all these weights have been taken with non calibrated scales...)

    .Rear wheel (rims + hubs) __ Cannondale Rear Wheel 30th anniversary 24 spoke ________ 922
    .Rear skewer _______________ Coda Rear Skewer - 30 Anniversary _______________________ 60
    .Front tire ________________ Hutchinson UST _________________________________________ 796

    .Front rotor _______________ __________________________ _______________________________ ? ___ TBD
    .Rear rotor ________________ __________________________ _______________________________ ? ___ TBD

    Transmission
    .Shifter - Right ___________ XT SL-M750 _____________________________________________ 250 ___ Set (L+R) from Weight weenies
    .Shifter - Left ____________ N/Applicable - see above for set _________________________ 0

    I'm looking at Gripshift's Jekyll 800 above and I'm thinking 'what a lucky sod, he gets to have a water bottle cage on his frame!' My small frame comes with a curved top tube and no braze-ons for for water bottle cages. I've had to order a seatpost mounted cage for mine.

    I do love my month-old Jekyll and I've not ridden it nearly enough in that time.

    I have traded my old SuperV Carbon for a Jekyll 1000 frame in April. It is not a stock model at all, but this is because I used the frame trade-in programme and build up the bike from there.
    Here are the components I added:
    - Crossmax SL wheels
    - IRC Mythos XC 2 tires -
    - Magura Louise FR brakes
    - RaceFace Evolce XC crank with a RaceFace Signature XS bracket
    - Easton seatpost with a Selle Italia Trans Am Flite saddle
    - SRAM 9.0 SL derailleur
    - SRAM 9.0 shorty shifters
    - Shimano XT front derailleur.
    - Shimano PD-M 647 pedals

    Total Weight: 11,9 Kg

    The only thing I am still going to change is the front derailleur to the new SRAM X-Gen and replace the rear derailleur with a new X.9.

    Here are 2 pictures:

    Meet Lucifer

    Compared to the other posts, I think this might be an antique... 2000 Jeckyll 3000sx. Since the stock components were fairly high-end, I haven't done much to the bike since I got it except ride it. On another thread I mentioned that I'm still running original brake pads after 4 years and about 3-4,000 miles... must be my riding style which is more XC. The only Coda problem I had was with the BB and the factory replaced it with Shimano XT. I used to have XTR rear but broke it on a rock and put and XT on since I've decided I am not that worried about weight. Yes, this one is old enough to have the original frame configuration and rear shock that led to the oft-criticized "seat-bob"... I honestly don't mind it and leave both shocks on all the time. As with most of the other Jeckyll-nuts, I LOVE this bike and have never really had much desire to change to another one. The horn was a gift from my wife... reminds me to not take myself to seriously (most other riders don't anyway).

    Jekyl 400 '04

    I wouldn't call it tricked out, but it is unusual. Mazocchi AM2 forks, Hope mini brakes. It suits my rather 230lb frame however.

    jekyll was waaaaayyy cool

    until I had my Prophet...but back to the jekyll.....this bike was so much better then anything else I rode at the time. I would still be riding mine if I hadnt been hammered on a downhill by someon on a recent jekyll, which forced me to upgrade to a ...prophet 2000. Anyway my jekyll 2000 from year 2000 was just AWESOME. I loved the paint job too, almost like the 3000 but fading to yellow instead of remaining orange. Awesome build, great components....a really worthy bike.

    I know, I really like Prophet. I would love to have Lefty MAX in front, but what the heck. I will probably PUSH my rear fork and if I can make enough dough I will buy the new RUSH next year. As they say, one 'dale is good, two are better

    2001 Jekyll w/ upgrades

    This is my 2001 Jekyll. It's a big one, XL, with high seat, but I'm 6'4". I've upgraded to Mavic Crossmax w/ UST Panaracer XC Pro, Hayes HFX-9 Disc, Pushed Fox rear shock which has the ProPedal technology added, what a difference that makes, LX shifters, Monkey Riser Bars.
    It has done great for me for 3 years in Vail, almost 2 years in Upstate NY and about to be in Park City where I'm moving as of August 1.

    I had some shifting problems on a 2001 Jekyll with Deore shifters. I had such a good response with the rollamajig that I but one on all of my bikes. It shortens the rear cable loop and really helps smooth out the shifting.

    Hey you Cannonier's I am struggling with a decision on which frame to buy the Jekyll or Prophet, CRC are having a sale on them the prophet is 799. the Jekyll 649.both are 05 frames.

    I ride mainly fast single track and small jumps up to maybe 3 foot...lots a roots and rocks.

    I know the prophet weighs in at a amazing 5.25lbs less shock. But I cant find a frame weight for the Jekyll any where..?

    I really want a bike that can climb as well as bomb down although I am now Downhiller...(and at 44 iam not about to become one) also the odd all day epic...which one would you guys advise???

    This post appears in the cannondale forum also,But only prophet owners seam to be reading it so i thought i would ask the jekyll owners direct.

    I cannot compare with the prophet because I have not tried it; but I am very pleased with my jekyll. I know in the other post everybody says to go for the prophet, but I have no regrets that I bought the jekyll last year. I only has 5mm less travel then the prophet wich is almost nothing. I think most of them are comparing with the older jekyll, which has less travel. The jekyll climbs well and a also like fast descents and my jekyll never let me down. One advantage the jekyll has over the prophet for me is that the prophet only has the possibility to have a water bottle at the bottom of the bike. Prophet lovers will say just use a camelback but on shorter rides (2-3 hours-I like to take a water bottle and not a cambelback

    I think you cannot go wrong with either frame. Just the prophet is a new bike and they do not make the jekyll anymore, but that will be the same for the prophet in a couple of years.

    Anybody has a picture of a Jekyll with a remote lockout and botle cage? I installes a remote lockout yesterday and the botle cage seems to block the cable a bit. I am thinking of turning my shock so the remote lockout lever on the shock is at the bottom of the shock, not the top.

    adán,

    I am trying to figure out sizing for the jekyll. I see that you are riding a small jekyll.
    How tall are you?

    Thanks.

    I'm 1'71 m tall. the medium is OK for me too, but I prefer the extra movility of the small. I had to buy a longer stem, because the difference is 2 or 3 cm

    Hi, they work and feel great, except for some vibration, but avid is sending me some new rotor that should fix that issue...

    I was going to buy a prophet 600 but I got a sweet deal on a Fox Vanilla R and Mavic Cossmax wheelset. I put them on my Jekyll 600 disc and it feels like I have a whole new ride. Hopefully this will keep me satisfied with what I have and not coveting what other people have.

    2000 jekyll

    here's my 2000 jekyll 900sl...i finally replaced the 70mm fatty headshock for an '05 marzocchi all mountail. this is the ugliest fork color ever...kinda the color of puke after vodka shots with orange juice chasers, but hey, 150mm of plush goodness. dt swiss wheelsets, avid juicy 5 brakes, nice wide riser bars, bombproof titec stem, beautiful can creek reducer headset. now if i can only afford beefier bb and crankset!

    this bike was never very balanced, with so little travel on the front end, but now it rides like the big bike, and it still climbs all funlike.

    hey, nice specs on the jekyll...how do you like the PUSH'd shock? my float r is in major need of rebuilding, and i'm thinking of sending it to them. also, what drivetrain do you plan to upgrade to? i'm still sportin the coda flexy cranks, and have been thinking of an upgrade. maybe raceface evolve's...maybe shimano xt's like i have on my other bike?

    looks like a good deal on the crankset, etc...i'm gonna wait until winter time and send the shock off to PUSH...i just ride the bike too much these days to put it out of commission for too long right now

    Yeah I sent mine away while I was replacing the fork and brakes to keep the down time to a minimum and I was able to take my time replacing the parts. I'm overseas right now so the turn around time on the shock was a little longer.....if I remember correctly it took about a month....not too shabby considering at least 2 weeks of that was shipping there and back.

    Hi,

    Since I'm new over here, I'd better share my bike with you.
    It's a 2001 Jekyll 1000SL (European model) with "some" alterations, the only original parts are front frame, headset and stem.

    Further:
    -Lefty Speed DLR2
    -Mavic Crossmax XL custom for Lefty
    -Hope Mono Mini
    -XTR / X.O mechs

    Some pics:


    Notice there are only Cannondales in the house!

    European model? Your front shock is all wrong! Should you have a "Righty" then?

    Just Re-Painted My O5' Jekyll Frame....

    Came out Damn Nice considering I wetsanded the entire bike/swing arm with 1000-1500grit. and painted with my HVLP spray gun...Im an Ex-Auto body Painter from N. Virginia-and enjoy redo's on bikes -unlike cars-its pretty easy if you know how to Prep. I do not have a Paint Booth or anything like that to help it cure faster- But I live in AZ. and it's currently 100+Degrees from noon till eve. So it dries pretty fast! I Re-orderd Cannondale Decal kit from FASTDECAL.COM in (silver) and the font matched perfect- then Tacked it off imediately Clear Coated over them. Just like the Factory. Base color is a Hi Metallic GUNMETAL GREY (Flakes) -"like a bass boat"...and it reflects light in the sun likeCRAZY!
    added a few FOX decals and just waiting now for a little extra $ for a new drive-train and fork. XT everthing and AVID Juicy 7's and she-be-done! miss this baby- cant wait to ride again...for all i have left to ride currently is my 99' GT mach one BMX.

    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.

    Wouldnt 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.

    Thanks, Im glad you like it, its a real head turner on the trails.

    Why dont 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.
