So it had a single fork leg? But it was on the opposite side of the brake rotor? What was holding the caliper

Sounds like a Cannondale Lefty with a "left-handed" phantom-mounted reverse disc brake setup, not an '09 SuckBike.

No, I think he means a reservoir by "cylinder", like the ones on shocks.

idk but it was nice the travel wasnt to long and had a rubber case over it. i wonder if it would be any harder to ride because of it being on the other side of the rotor. high mantienence prolly also imagine how many axils you'd go through.

Rubber case? (fork boot)

The rotor you're referring to is called a wheel. Otherwise, the fork leg is on the same side as the disc rotor.

I don't know how many axils YOU would go through, but that fork wouldn't go through many AXLES at all. Does your car? Similar design.

Do you see how I type? Full sentences...identifiable punctuation.

Give it a try.
