Spank Oozy Trail Flat Pedal - Review
I have a pair of Deity's Decoy flats, and they are worrisomely durable! I bought them on CRC in 2012, and they are still rock solid! No issues at all. They do look like sh*t by now, since they get abused a lot, but no rolling issues, no bent axles, no nothing! If they ever fail I am buying a pair again! Also, they are on CRC for 83 bucks! BUT they do weight 425g for the pair, no big deal for me, but some may not like it. http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/br/pt/deity-components-decoy-pedals-2014/rp-prod94874

Cannondale Jekyll 27.5 Carbon Team - Review
I tried to model it, but the best I could do was a comparison between a single and a double crown suspension. A lateral momentum must be added to the frame twitching the head tube laterally, to simulate the lefty, but that I can not do on ftool... http://www.pinkbike.com/u/caiokv/album/useless-stuff/

@zede: Thank you! @LeDuke: Those look pretty different from both lefty's design and usual mountain bike suspension's design and their models are completely different, therefore no need to shut them down yet: http://www.airbus.com/fileadmin/media_gallery/photogallery/big/800x600_1279895407_close_up_A380_landing_gear.jpg http://www.boeing.com/assets/images/commercial/777family/images/02_10_777_l_gear.jpg

Cannondale Jekyll 27.5 Carbon Team - Review
How come? The Lefty puts all the stress only in one side of the top tube, and does it in two points, under the top tube, and over it, also since it is only on the left side there is an added torsional force applied on the frame, on a single crown fork this torsional force is null because the structure absorbs it. I have always wondered why Cannondale won't do asymmetric top tubes, to deal with this force. Maybe they use a different internal width on the frame...

Is it wise to put a lefty on anything other than a Cannondale designed to run it? I mean, it sure stress the frame in a different way than any other fork, since all the forces are only on the left side, applying a greater torsion on the head tube, while a single crown fork would not. Ask SC about it before doing it, if it does not break your frame you might lose warranty...
