If you think you abuse your Lefty, watch this video for about 6mins and maybe you will realize how strong these forks really are. Folks this is some "Old School" footage of Aaron Chase and others. The begining of this video is all Aaron, it is really well shot and great to watch. http://watch26.tv/video/3206

Mine was pretty durable. Survived so many epic rides, ultras, and abuses of a 210lb clyde here in Colorado. Just an amazing mechanical feat of engineering. Demo'd the newest Lefty Carbon this summer for a race. Not that it was all the fork but it was the only race I podiumed at this past year.

If it is, I'll have to return mine for warranty, my best finish this year was a 5th... :D I did finish 3rd on my first race on my Scalpel and Lefty SL last year though.

Its more durable than me. I put 10,962k on mine and have wiped ouy quite a few times to various hospital stays and visits and have had all the greatest from my 2005 Lefty Max. I'm laid up with a broken arm and fractured heel from a good one and all the bike suffured was a scrape on the left hand grip. I was pushing myself to break 11,000k while too tired? Keep it LBS professionally inspected and serviced and it'll go!!!

i always wondered about play between the upper and lower leg.The arron chase vids are cool, they are strong forks,durability questions,he could have had alot of different forks ,i didn't count bikes,but i did notice it's a few different frames from when i started looking at that.

The video is cool and the rider is very skilled BUT he did not abuse the fork! I believe he could do all these tricks with a fork from Walmart.
