Cannondale Lefty Fork Service Notice:

If you have a hybrid Lefty fork (2013 or newer, characterized by the lack of a boot at the lower end) the fork leg needs to be completely clean, smooth and free of any damage whatsoever. If any of these conditions exist, the fork needs to go back to the factory for repair. Forks sent to Mendon Cyclesmith with damaged legs unfortunately will be sent back at the owner's expense.

Craig Smith, Proprietor

Here's what people are saying about Craig on MTBR:

  • "Craig serviced my Lefty, added a TPC, and built a set of 32H 819s that are flawless. His attention to detail is awesome. Any Lefty service work from now on is going to Craig."
  • "I sent Craig a Super Fatty Ultra DL. It was super easy! He was really fast, and I had it back way sooner than the LBS quoted me for sending it to Cannondale. Much more affordable too! Needless to say the fork works great. I can't stop riding it now. Two thumbs up; I'd recommend him to anyone."
  • "I ordered a bunch of parts from Craig and received the stuff fast for a great price. His expertise makes it all worthwhile. Heck of a nice guy!"
  • "I sent Craig my lefty and I had it back in a week also had him build me a Woodman lefty w/823 and just put that on yesterday. Very sweet wheel! I will have Craig do service for me anytime. His prices are very good and he is fast."
