I think the Lefty is great. The Super V I have is better balanced travel-wise front to rear than it would have been with the Headshok that was on it. The problem is that getting a Lefty and Lefty wheel can be rather expensive. The Lefty and wheel I got off eBay cost half what they normally go for, I was lucky. Damper cartridge was needing oil, described as such on eBay, I took it out re-filled it, bled it and put it back in.
Another thing about Leftys and Headshoks too, for that matter, is they need special tools to maintain them yourself, which are expensive to buy if you can get them. I was lucky, Edinburgh Bicycles had a Lefty castle tool in their New Year sale for £8's odds, that are normally around £60+.

I did a bit of Pollok Park today. Ever since I snapped my Clockwork (which I think was more due to corrosion than impact stress) I've been a bit wary of jumps, but I got some reasonable air today, shat out of the table top though.

I think my next bike will be full sus so I feel I can abuse it more. I love my Klein too much to see it broken, and I always think of it as a bit fragile.
