Any clydesdales out there ride a Cannondale w/lefty fork?

The new bike bug has bitten and I've been looking at a Cannondale hard tail w/lefty fork. Does anyone here have any experience with that fork? I'm right at 300lbs now but if I can get down under 300 I want a mountain bike.

Everyone in this forum has inspired me to keep going, even on those days I don't really want to, and I'd just like to say Thanks.
