Set-up instructions for Lefty Ultra 120 w/DLR
Anyone know where I can find the manual for the Lefty Ultra 120 w/DLR besides the Cannondale website? When I try to download the lefty manuals I get some sort of error. I tried emailing customer service and got some kind of error as well. Looking to set up my fork for my weight. TIA
How much tdo you weigh?
The base for 170 lbs. is 105psi, but that was too soft for me. I run 120psi and it seems to be perfect...
My son runs 110, and he is 155lbs. Just a couple options for you.
I weigh 220 lbs and currently have the air pressure set to 135 lbs per a manual I was able to download for the Lefty Speed. I figured the difference shouldn't be that great between Lefty models. I have my rear shock set at 220 lbs and am getting 20% sag.
OK, Direct from my owners manual for the Lefty DLR:
Rider Weight(lbs.) Starting Air Pressure (psi)
75 - 34
100 - 45
125 - 60
150 - 90
175 - 105
200 - 120
225 - 135
250 - 149
275 - 164
Recommended Sag 25% - 30mm
Looks like you are really close on your initial setup. I am 15psi high, but I like a little bit firmer feel, and ride a lot of technical rocky downhills as well with some moderate drops (24' or so).
I wouldn't call 24 feet a moderate drop!

One other question; when I lock out my fork, I still get maybe .25" of travel. Is the fork designed this way, or should it be completely locked out, i.e. no movement at all?
Mine also moves about that much, and so does my sons PBR. I do not know for sure, but I think we are OK.
Brother, I meant 24"
