It is depending on your frame and the amount of travel you can have. If it is a normal Cannondale HT frame, a Lefty DLR is most probably your only choice, due to the fork length. Then you have three choices for your wallet: OPI, Carbon and SL Carbon
Thanks for the reality check, you're right, it is hard to believe. But I checked back to my service and receipts records--which I meticulously keep for my own benefit-- and I was wrong. My lefty is seven years old now with only one service, not six.klinkekule said:if my memory is correct the f-series bikes can take forks with ac heights up to 500mm - which is what the 130mm lefty max pbr 09 is. So if that is correct it should go on just fine. I'm not sure if it is a great idea though as the handling might not be what you are after due to the slacker head angle and higher bb.
A lefty speed carbon sl is by far the best speed lefty i have tried and i would personally invest the extra cash to get one. It is really quite amazing. With all the racers wanting the sl2 opi or newer it shouldn't be that expensive either. The opi version is just lighter. My current 2010 lefty max pbr (alloy) is the best max i have tried by far and i must say that i love it. It is really just about perfect and i could not recommend it enough .- even if it can't hold its air for that many days in a row (easily fixed by a service i know - jst haven't gotten around to it yet).
to the last poster - if you've commuted daily and competed with the lefty for six years and it have seen only a service then either you have gotten a Willy Wonka golden lefty or it is in dire need of a service. Leftys are a bit high maintenance so it sounds a bit too ggood to be true sadly
my bad, my intention was not to give the impression that i thought you were lying - far from it. It just sounded so perfect that i was finding it hard to believe. Sounds like your riding conditions and the lefty are a perfect match. Lucky you Let's hope it stays that way for 7 more years. I was just implying that it prob needed a service right about now, though if it feels as good as a brand new one - then yes, you are correct - why botherSpinny said:Thanks for the reality check, you're right, it is hard to believe.

Honestly, why whould I make such an outstanding claim up? You don't even know who I am, I have nothing to gain by lying about such a thing.
I'm certain the fork may be due for another soon, but until it demonstrates any issues why "fix" it?
