    They recalled somethings but fixed the problem, one problem they had was not locktiting some part inside the fork, so if you get a lefty on craiglist or ebay or w/e i'd take it to a shop and have em check it. imo the left carbon whatever is the fanciest one is the only one worth while, cause its is so light, all the other ones arn't any lighter than the fox f100 and only a little heavier than the 120, and the lefties are up there in price with the fox forks, and I would much rather have a fox than a lefty, you get compression adjustment and fox awsomeness. also you can use normal wheels

    You would need a new wheel and (front) brakes too.

    I believe the Cannondale ht is 1 1/4, but not 100% sure.

    The Jekyll will take the lefty.

    1 1/2, 1 1/4, w/e either way its not 1 1/8

    ^another reason not to buy a lefty instead of a fox is that c'dale is stopping it in 08, they are using fox forks and rock shox for lower end bikes, so hmm maybe they are onto somthin, also i'd be concerned about parts availablilty for repairs down the line

    No, there are several scalpels, rush's and hardtails with lefties for '08. They have only stopped making the 140mm lefties.

    You're right, they are fine. But they ain't cheap, and they offer no benefit over a conventional setup. I should have elaborated.

    They benefit the OP because his bike was made for one, and he won't have to buy a new stem, headset or front wheel.

    LEFTY ??? Handlebar?Seatpost??

    I want the Jekyll so I wanna go for a Lefty, I like how they work,stiffnes,look of it. Iīm not shure which one. The LeftyFox inter. is on TerraLogic based, but Fox donīt do TerraLogic any more? why? The SPEED110DLR2 BoundedBridge or SPEEDcarbonDLR2, or shell I spend ap:$300 more for a 110SL(its the top Lefty) but is it worth extra money? The Magazine tester give it a Top grades, but they could be paid for their Notes??? oh...Its1,5 Steam. +I got SPINERGY XycloneDisc Wheels for Lefty,and MartaSL,X0gripp+rearD,XTR,...and Handlebars,Seatpost not shure? MonkeyLiteSLcarbon,FSA,RaceFace,RitcheyLowRiser??? P6???
