    What year bike is this?

    My original question got some views but no replies: I have this bike,
    bought used, and all I know its a Cannondale Jekyll, 3000SX, with a Lefty front fork.

    Does anyone know what year this model is?

    Which model of Lefty fork?

    ANY feedback or advice would be appreciated ... particularly on proper setup of fork and rear shock.

    Thank you for your assistance. Great forum!

    Also forgot to ask what pressure to set front and back shocks for my weight?

    I'm 220lbs and do mostly cross-country and put 75 in the fork and 270 in the rear based on the manuals I found on-line but I don't know if those are right for this year of bike since I don't know the year of this bike.

    2000-03 era Jekyll. DLR ti, 100 mm f+r.

    Been a while since I rode one, but I'd try around 150 in the fork, 200 in the rear, see how it rides, and adjust to taste from there.

    Vintage Cannondale is your friend if you need an actual model year, they only did that color scheme for one of them...
    This is a Pugs not some carbon wannabee pretzel wagon!!
