It is a little to late to change now, but I was wondering peoples thoughts on the Lefty fork in general. I bought a 07' Caffeine 29er that has a Lefty Speed Bonded DLR2 80mm fork and was wondering how different/difficult they are to maintain, life cycle, durability, etc, compared to a standard air shock... I am a clydesdale rider (250lbs) and would like to know what to expect. As far as I know it had the recall warranty work done on it since it was mechanic owned.
The bike and fork got excellant reviews on MTBR, so I pulled the trigger. What do you guys think of the fork (and/or Bike) for the trails we have in this area?
