    Weight limits on Flash (29) and Lefty? Above 200lbs riders aout there?

    Hi there,
    I am still fixed on the lefty concept and the Flash Carbon bikes, in particular the 29er versions.
    However I am around 200lbs (90kg) and was wondering if there are any weight limits on the Flash Carbon or the Lefty forks?
    Or who else is around or above 200lbs (90kg) and has experiences with the Flash/ and or Lefty?

    Thanks in advance!
    Oliver

    I'm 250 and the lefty is still king in my book. Love the fork and wish I could get it to work on a few other bikes I own. As far as the flash 29, I broke a frame within months of it being new but it was a aluminum frame and not carbon.

    Yes, there is a weight limit.

    300 lbs (136kg) rider
    5 lbs (2.3kg) Luggage

    From the Flash owners manual found on the Cannondale website.

    Watch and draw your own conclusions.
    Forks are for eating, Lefty's are for racing,
