Responding to Noble Sport’s most Frequently Asked Question

Here at Noble Sports, we get asked lots of bike questions, but there is one that gets asked about 10 times as much as any other.  Customers walk into the store and whether they are there for a road bike, mtn bike, or just a tube…they catch a glimpse of the Cannondale Lefty Shock, and for many it blows their mind.  “Why does that have only one shock?”  “Is that actually stable?”  “I wouldn’t trust that thing?”  “How does it work?”  “What are the advantages?”

We’ve heard them all and some of us are better at explaining it than others.  Whether you know the workings of the Lefty or not, if you’ve ridden one you know they can withstand the tests of hard riding and that their ride quality surpasses that of any other fork.  So, let me ‘splain how it works.  No, there is too much…let me sum up…ok ok, better yet, check out this video where Cannondale explains it better than I ever could:
