SL, all day long. The pinnacle of current generation DLR2, as opposed to a somewhat fickle lover, that no longer appears in the lineup........Cannondale4Life said:2006 Lefty Speed Carbon with Fox TT or the 2007 Lefty Speed Carbon SL?
Which is why I sold mine last fall after talking to the factory mechanics. I loved the fork but don't want to worry about being able to service it in two years.as opposed to a somewhat fickle lover, that no longer appears in the lineup........
Hey, I was making the same decision last month, I didnt know which one to buy the Fox Lexty or the SL, After trying the Fox from my friends bike. All i can say its I loved it, its just awesome...Cannondale4Life said:Just wondering what people think of the Lefty with Fox TT internals. If you had the choice would you go with the 2006 Lefty Speed Carbon with Fox TT or the 2007 Lefty Speed Carbon SL?
You have to service it every two years? Ouch!skinl19 said:Which is why I sold mine last fall after talking to the factory mechanics. I loved the fork but don't want to worry about being able to service it in two years.
How hard is it to shim the SL for the Caffeine29?
Hey there, it is a funny fork to set up. The Terra Logic is an opinionated beast. The settings, near as I can tell do not allow you to go to a toptally "open" fork. There is always some level of "logic" lockout going on, and you feel the transition from lock to moving. Since this is the case, I think most people who like that sort of suspension design, want to fell it, and will interpret their impressions of it, through the filter of wanting it, if that makes any sense. Basically, they like the feeling of it, so they find the lightest settings to be a point worth waxing poetic about=michelefiorentin said:what i see as a problem is that it's not so easy to adjust: in my case i run it on the minimum thresold (= maximum sensibility of terralogic) , but i have the impression that some hits are not adsorbed becaue the valvle remain closed!!
Some people say that they can even decide from the thresold setting the dimension of the gravel they want the TT to be activated.... :eekster:
the question is : my fork is okay??
ok Mendon, took me 5 minutes to understand your post (I am italian ! sorry ) and if I got right you ( a lefty fan indeed) are suggesting me not to bother to make any sense about the behaviour of a crazy TT logic!!MendonCycleSmith said:I think most people who like that sort of suspension design, want to fell it, and will interpret their impressions of it, through the filter of wanting it, if that makes any sense.

Well, I'm sure you did far better, than if I tried to understand an Italian posting Sadly I am in the category of Americans who are not multi linguistic, unlike the rest of the world. Seems like most of them speak at least 2 if not more languages.michelefiorentin said:ok Mendon, took me 5 minutes to understand your post (I am italian ! sorry )
Interesting, I've not heard of anyone here doing it, but it's col that someone is. I guess there won't be too many getting done though, since they are no longer making the forks. Cheers!michelefiorentin said:Anyway i heard about an italian shop (leonadi) who "modifies" the TT.. I am not sure - he want to talk about this mod on the phone only- but he can make broader the terra settings.
I think it's not that complicated from a mechanical point of view (just keep the crazy valve open!!) but gives you the choiche from a smooth ride and a controlld lockout...:thumbsup:
anyone in the US did it already??
Hey there, unfortunately, you cannot tell from the outside, sorry. In '05, the forks had the original Terra technology, which had a very harsh platform edge. You had to really WHACK it before it turned on. Then it would turn off, and you'd have to repeat the process. It was very unpopular, except with efficiency obsessed racers. Then, in '06 they added Trail Tuned technology to the fork, which helped with that sharp edge, and now the racers were howling, since their supper harsh, effiecient fork was gone. After two years of getting yelled at by one faction or another, and having alot of problems that only sending it to Fox could solve, they dumped the fork. Good luck with it!!michelefiorentin said:dear Mendon,
I also know that Canondale modified TT behaviour from 2005 to 2006. This complicated more facts about TT and creates lots of confusion between users.
Do you know exactly what is changed and how i can check the year of my model (purchased on ebay)??
I asked to a lefty mechanic and he sai that is impossible to chck the year without open the fork...is this true??
I have no sag or very little which is difficult to notice...this is not very smart...:madman:
In any case many people think lefty TT as the best XC fork of ever!!
