However, a slacker head tube angle can make climbing harder and also make it more challenging to control the weight over the front wheel during turns.

How does the Lefty fork work?

A Lefty moves on thin strips of needle bearings that are placed on each flat side of the inner tube. Conventional forks with round tubes move on bushings, which are essentially plastic rings. Bushings have more “stiction,” or static friction that needs to be overcome before the fork moves into its travel.

Is 160mm enough for enduro?

Even if you’re not competing, because mechanical support at races is minimised, the best mountain bike rigs destined for enduro race tape need to be ultra-reliable too. Look for travel between 160mm and 180mm combined with either 29in wheels front and rear, or mullet set-ups (29in front, 27.5in rear).

Is 150mm travel enough for enduro?

Going big is easier on my 150mm enduro bike. Long-travel bikes usually have 150-170mm of rear travel to handle tough downhill trails. Front travel often matches rear travel but sometimes can be more. Trail and enduro bikes fall into this category.

Are Lefty forks safe?

The lefty is no fun to ride without your hands on the bars, starts to get a little wild.

Is 150mm travel too much for trail riding?

Too much travel can also dull the feedback of your trail bike. We recommend that a trail fork ideally have 34mm stanchions, at 130-140mm, for a 29er – possibly, up to 150mm, for the smaller 27.5in wheel size.

Is 170 mm travel too much?

Depending on your skill, riding style, and terrain, there is likely an ideal amount of suspension travel. Other specs such as geometry, wheels, and tires matter too, but they are usually tailored to match a bike’s suspension. Most modern mountain bikes will have somewhere between 100mm and 170mm of suspension travel.

What is the difference between the Jekyll and the Cannondale Cannondale?

Cannondale rarely follows convention, and while the Jekyll ditches its single-sided Lefty fork, the way the shock sits above and ahead of the kinked linkage gives the carbon mainframe a distinctive look. It leaves room for a neat side-loading bottle cage on the seat tube too, and thru-axle pivots make it a lot stiffer than it looks.
