    what shop did u get that from ? I ve been told the really high end stuff is still a way off. Im going to get down to cannondale at warriewood and take their demo out. I think its either a 2000 or 3000. Hopefully i can take it out for a couple of hours and go upto oxford falls, and not just around the car park. what area are you at and did u make it down to the mont ??

    From what I read the Fox equipped Lefty on replica and 3000 models isn't really something you'll want for general riding - it's just too hash. I like the 2000 in galvanized "color".

    i will end up keeping the stumpy for most of my training and use this for racing only. I also have a santa cruz vp free which will be my flogging and thrashing bike. Ive never riden on a lefty before but ive been told they give a fantastic ride and precise handling.

    The Lefty is awesome for it's intended purposes. Go ahead and order the ride that you want. The wait is worth it.

    I guess you can ask for a Carbon DLR Lefty (the one on the Rush 2000) instead of the "Fox Lefty" when you order your Rush 3000 or Team. That's what I did on my Scalpel 2 years ago because I didn't want the ELO system.

    Has anyone ridden the 2006 Terralogic with the new Trail Tuned damper? It is supposed to be a lot more compliant than the 2005 version. Harshness was a big complaint in 2005 and the 2006 is supposed fix that while still being a race style fork.

    The new Fox lefty is pretty damn good. It is trail tuned so it feels like a firm pedaling platform, but once you hit a bump the supension activates and feels quite plush. You can obviously tune the firmness as well so if you like a really firm fork for hammering you can still achieve that effect.

    thanks for your guys, one last question though. Whats the service like from cannondale, ie crash replacement , warranty, time etc. The reason i am changing over is i have dinged the seatstay and i am after a replacement stay from specialised ( rideable, but i dont want to take any chances) S works is their top frame (bike is about 7000 usd the way it is set up) and i was told they would not have a stay in AUSTRALIA until jan/feb. It was only after i started shooting off emails they are starting to act, and i could have one in 3 weeks. My bike is 05 model......very poor effort. I have always offered to pay for this and have never once dropped the warranty word. I realize we are the end of the world down here, but i could swim to the states and back in this time. Has anyone, particarly in Aust, had dealings with Cannondale service as this bike is big dollars, and in the end the product is only as good as the follow up service

    thanks guys

    In response to your earlier query, I live in the Ryde area and got the bike from Burwood Cycleworld - great guys that really know their stuff. It's a new store and they really make an effort - talk to Dave.

    CDale Australia at Warriewood is owned by the parent company - I once bought a bike in the states and brought it back to Australia. I had some minor problems and it was all fixed under warranty. The service from the Cdale guys was great but make sure you go to a good LBS in the first place.

    Don't hesitate, order the Rush or even the Prophet

    Just got my Terra Logic upgraded to the trail tuned damper as i was having some issues with my 2005 typo. My 2005 typo was losing air dramatically thus sent it back to Cannondale for a 2 week turn-over & presto!! Brand new 2006 internals NO CHARGE!!!
    The bump threshold tuner now has 28 clicks compared to the previous 12 clicks ( i think?)
    The inertia fox lefty is an awesome piece of work & i no longer enjoy utalizing my dlr 2.
    I live inner city San Francisco & this is my street fork & it's Peeeeeeeeeeeerfect!!

    Happy trails 2 all.........
