I have aquired a Cannondale Lefty Max spv fork from 2006, I haven't had time to have a good look or service it yet but I did notice that the recoil strength knob on the top won't budge in either direction, might there be a problem and where's the best place to source spares for these? Thanks.

Google thumbprint tuning woulf be worth a try, otherwise a bike shop who stocks Cannondale

Thanks, excellent site, £90 for a service though I'll have a damn good go myself before I part with that.

You will need special tools to take them apart

Give Tony at Thumbprint a call, he's a good guy and will probably have some idea as to what's wrong, he also does specific work as well so if you just want it 'fixed' but not serviced he might do something...

as already said, you need tools and you need to know what you're doing if you plan on taking one fully apart (sliders included) but the damper in them is relatively simple so you might be able to fix without fully dismantling it.

there are exploded PDFs available if you google

Good fork (strut) BTW, when working properly of course :-)
