    lol, those single sided forks always 'freak' me out - that's just WRONG

    How reliable are those bad boys? Presumable they can't take anywhere near as much lateral torque as a 'normal' fork set?

    Many say that it is just as rigid and strong as any other normal fork... I say it is just another reason for yuppie cannondale owners to feel like they are apart from the pack and something special, and another way cannondale can bend you over a desk with MORE proprietary junk.... youll never catch my fat @$$ on one of those... not even a test ride... HEIL ZOCCHI!!!!

    Think of it this way. If cannondale knew that it was going to fail, and knew that nobody would buy it, knew that it'd get recalled, why would they spend so much to make them. Obviously, they're made well, it's up to you to try them. They've tried to make it so that people aren't afraid to get on them.

    ive ridden one strong,stiff, didnt seem flexy.my only complaint was that the jekyll i rode with,the rebound was fast.even adjusting it didnt work.was very bouncy for me.i weigh less than 150 pounds.i prefer the rebound slow and not bouncy.

    They are actually very stiff, and smooth, but I just dont feel secure on top of one.
