Probably a stupid question: Do Cannondale make a 'Righty' for left handed people?

I got a lot of docs on Lefties @ home will check and revert l8r ..

You set up the sag like any other shock but will find the docs for you

You also need to know about resetting the rollers on a regular basis and of course keep 'em greased.

The Cannondale web site as a lot of technical and setup docs

Generally you adjust the pressure /preload of the shock to get 25% sag - that's the dip of the shock with you sitting on it. Can be measured a number of ways and methods, masking tape and a tape measure helps if you doing it solo.

Also I have found mtbr forums a hive on info - go to the Cannondale section lots of info to search there.

I run my lefty if memory serves me right at around 130psi.

Plenty of manuals on the web to download the relevant info.

I run mine at 110 Psi, the setup guide works on sag, with a 50/50 weight distribution you must have 30mm sag, or something like that.. its in the bike manual...

Did not get a manual, was in a mad rush to get the bike ready and on the trails. Will pick it up later from the shop.

what do you weigh?
