Olympic edition Lefty



I can't wait to get more details on what's going on inside these but the Cannondale Lefty that was ridden at the World Championships last week is sure interesting. Apart from the Go for Gold decals, the boot is replaced by a minimal condom-like rubber sheet (you gotta use all those old inner tubes after you convert to tubeless!) and they forgo the air filter cover. Also worth noting is the bottom of the half-fork, a one-piece affair that can potentially save weight but increase the already very high stiffness. Apparently though, the most interesting features can't be seen on the outside...
