    Lefty Terralogic bearing reset...

    Has anyone actually done a bearing reset on a Terralogic lefty? I did this tonight and checked the measurement from top to bottom at a hair over 26 inches and it should be 27.4 inches (696mm)

    I'm not sure if I'm doing this correctly. I removed the split rings, and with the bike in a stand I used the weight of the wheel and compressed the fork and "slammed" the wheel downward. As I understand it this is correct - but I'm not sure just how hard to "slam" it, the manual just says "reset by pulling up hard a few times". The measurement didn't change at all and is 1.4 inches less then it should be.

    Please advise. Thanks.

    I called Cannondale tech support and they emailed me a .pdf. Shoot me your email and I'll forward it to you.

    I have been riding a Rush w/ the Fox Terralogic fork since spring of '06 and I never have checked to see if fork needs to be reset. Doesn't feel like its changed, but I guess I could measure it and see.

    Breathing new life into this thread with a question... can I get a copy of said PDF on the Terralogic reset info...and if not, any big issues on resetting the Terralogic Lefty that is majorly different from my PBR?

    I was planning to:
    Take off the air/compression adjuster cap, let the air out, unscrew the "strut leg top cap" and proceed as normal.... are a bunch of guts going to come spilling out? I don't want guts all over the place!

    Thanks to anybody that can answer this! (Mendon CycleSmith??!)

    Wait... is it press down, or pull up? Or, are both correct answers?

    If memory serves, with a red pin spanner, you remove the middle ring in the top cap. Push down, and remove the split rings on the piece that pops up, then reset as normal.

    I'm not sure how the Terralogic differs from the model in this video, but it's a very illustrative video nonetheless:

    (Sorry, can't post links yet. Hit up vimeo.com slash 24521433.)

    The PDF is what I was looking for.... awesome, perfect!

    Interesting, the inertia valve in the example photos looks exactly like the regular inertia valves on the Fox forks.... probably the same part number!

    Thanks again :-)
