Now, I don’t actually know anyone who rides a Cannondale. Really I don’t, in fact I actually know more Klien owners than Cannondale owners and the number I see out on the trails is pretty low as well, except occassionally round Holmbury Hill and outside Peaslake Stores.
Must be a shortage of dealers locally I guess. That aside though, I just thought I’d flag an article posted on Bike Biz about Cannondale issueing a Safety Recall on their Lefty Speed Carbon SL and Lefty Speed DLR 2 forks (or is that fork? or tine?). Seems like some unfortunate assemblers in the factory are getting the blame for a problem which allows the forks to reduce themselves to core components at inopportune moments.
I distrust the look of the Lefty anyway although Cannondale are at pains to emphasise its an assembly issue and not a design one. But just in case anyone reading this is running one of the above forks, best to get them checked. Hopefully the folks at your Local Bike Shop (LBS) are more competent assemblers than the ones Cannondale employ in their factories.
