Cannondale Jekyll 27.5 Carbon Team - Review
I'm not going to name any names, but several races have been lost by multiple people this year due to Lefty's getting stuck down in their travel mid-race.

Cannondale Jekyll 27.5 Carbon Team - Review
He's comparing it to a low end fork. Look at the hollow brace. What he's saying is true, but it's not as extreme as this comparison leads people to believe. The difference in performance between a Lefty and a fork of equal value is much smaller. What he doesn't talk about is how much more frequently the Lefty requires service, and how much more expensive that service is.

Nice! Yea, I remember it being tough to build there. I'll have to make it back up sometime, now that I have a real mountain bike!

I went up there way back in like 1998 for a couple weeks. Bought a shovel in town and built a couple lips up on a trail above the college. Had a Boss 26" cruiser with a Marzocchi fork, as there were no real jump style MTB's at the time. Stashed the shovel under a log. I wonder if anyone ever found it?

Like I said, drifting is off the brake, or feathering it.

Movies For Your Monday
When you try to make your video "epic" by making the intro take up 1/3 of your 3 minute video, it actually has the opposite effect, because I end up skipping ahead till I see riding. Save the ego edit for impressing your mom, and give us the riding.

Drifting and skidding are two different things. Skidding is when you lock up your brake. Drifting is off the brake, or feathering it. Watch his rear wheel, it never stops rotating.

JC, there are two options for that jump. 1. You mellow out the lip, making it easier to hit the landing more consistently, but rendering it practically un-trickable. (There are only a few people in the world who would consider that jump trickable as it was.) 2. Build the landing bigger. If you take a look at how many sandbags are already in it, you can get an idea of how much more time and labor it would have taken to build it bigger. I'd say they did a great job with what they had in that spot.
