I know c'dale makes a kit to convert 110 leftys to 80mm for use on 29ers, but can I take the 80mm lefty off my caffeine 29er and extend the travel to 110 for use on a 26" bike? I assume you could, unless cannondale has started making a 29" specific model.

Should be able to. If you take the adjustment knob and top cap off, per the "bearing reset" instructions, you will find some white/yellowish plastic shims that reduce the travel to 80mm. Pull them off and travel should be 110mm. Seems like you might need to change out a spring too in the 29er specific models. But it is probably not needed.
