Recently I acquired a Cannondale Jekyll 700 and there is definitely something wrong with the front suspension. It is SUPER soft, it takes 10 maybe 15 pounds to bottom it out. Can anyone tell me what it needs or what is wrong with it, or even how to fix it? Thanks.

Do I need one of those suspension specific pumps? And sorry about my low-level of knowledge about it, I got this bike from my uncle who never rode it and figured I would fix this before he got back to the states ( a few years)

Short term, go to the shop you got it from and have them pump it up. Did it happen suddenly, or has it been sitting for a while. If it happened all of a sudden, then you have a problem.

If the thing has been sitting around for a few years it wouldn't hurt to get it tuned up and such. Bring it down to your LBS and have them take a look over it. This way (since you are unfamiliar with it), you can be relatively assured that the bike is safe and ready to ride.
Take it to your local Cdale dealer have them send it back to the factory for a rebuild unless its a in shop repair. My rebuild was like $195 or so back in 2004
