    Stripped Lefty Spindle

    So somehow my Lefty Max 130 spindle is completely stripped even though I don't think I ever overtightened it. I've heard that Leftys have helicoils in them, but mine doesn't seem to, so perhaps I can helicoil it myself? What should I do in this situation? This really sucks. Thanks for any help.

    If it's a Max, it is indeed helicoiled. Cannondale has them, and can do the job. Your LBS can help with getting a return # for you.
    This is a Pugs not some carbon wannabee pretzel wagon!!

    Yep, it's a helicoil. Contact you local Cannondale dealer.

    same threads as a der hanger if I remember right... check if LBS has some, rather then the C'dale ones?
