    Supermax - opinions sought

    I have a 110mm Lefty on my 2nd gen 429. Handles great but the fork is a
    little flexy because I'm a Clyde. I had a 120mm Reba on my old 1st gen 429 and I didn't care for the slower steering but the extra travel was nice. The Supermax has a rake of 61mm and a AC of 530mm. My current Lefty has a AC of 510mm. Thoughts?

    Supermax - opinions sought

    What wheels you have? Are you sure the flex is coming from the fork and not wheels? Also if you noticed the slower steering with the Reba you will surely notice it with the supermax.
    All out of S**** and down to my last F***

    Supermax - opinions sought

    ENVE AM wheelset. I was hoping the 61mm offset of the Supermax would make it steer more quickly than my old 120mm Reba with 44mm offset and 626mm AC. I weigh 240lb.

    I may have the connection, but I've been misinformed by Cannondale before. I don't want to be a beta tester.

    It's a great fork. And it doesn't flex.
    Good luck getting one.

    I've read reports regarding lefty hybrids being less smooth than old ones with boot.
    People seem to recommend removing volume reducer to make it smoother and more linear.
    What about supermax? Is it the same as regular lefty in this regard?

    I liked the fork stock with around 73ish psi ( I weigh 165)
    I just removed the v/r....I haven't had a chance to ride it.
    But I had to put in 25 more psi to get the same sag ( which makes sense)
    I won't get to ride it until next week...too many other bikes to ride
