It has good lines but but the details ruin it.

IIRC Cannondale's patent expires soon, it was first submitted back in 1998.

I kinda forgot that the Cannondale Moto actually utilized roller bearings on a square stanchion in traditional dual-leg format. They utilize two dampers, one in each leg, which would be a bit frivolous today.

I actually think the thing that has hurt the Lefty the most is its utilization of a special hub. Adroit is claiming they've developed a way of using a normal hub and 15mm axle on their single sided linkage fork. If only Cannondale had done something similar with the Lefty it might have helds its popularity.
.IIRC patents only last 20 years

Gets worse the longer you look at it. The headtube is the knockout punch.

Sunn really let the industrial designer run the show on this one.

I think the Lefty predates through axle hubs which is probably why they ended up doing things the way they did.
