Bicycle Services

Lefty & Headshock service order form

Cannondale Lefty and Headshock service is $85 for labor, seals and oil, other parts such as boots, races, bearings etc, are extra, I cover half of return shipping and turn time is typically a week.


"How does it work?"

Please read this entire section, as your experience depends on it. 


Fill out the electronic form below (please DO NOT print it out and hand write the  information, thanks), box it up, ship it to the address at the bottom of this webpage.


You will get an email response to the address you provide with the form within 24 hours or so, If you do not, check your spam folder, not there? Please contact me as we need to be in email contact.


Within about a week of arrival, I will be in touch via your email, with total, tracking number, service breakdown, and cover how to pay. Credit card, Paypal, checks, money orders, cash, they all work. 


I add 3% onto all bills paid by credit card or Paypal. If you would like to avoid this fee, simply include $100 CASH (no checks for this please, cash only), with your fork, and I will bill you for the balance once the work is completed, no extra fee. 

Hybrid Lefty fork owners note!
2013 or newer, Leftys without a boot at the lower end?


The lower 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.

Specializing in Lefty
& Headshock Service and Repair


The Mendon Cyclesmith is not just a bike repair and retail shop but also your premier Lefty and HeadShock service facility. I've also had more than 30 years experience with building wheels, and have built more than I can count, most of which are still rolling today.



Opened in the spring of 2004, the shop serves the needs of cyclists in the mountain, road, and family/recreational cycling communities. Owner Craig Smith has over thirty years' experience as a cyclist, outdoorsman, mechanic and builder. He is well known online in the MTBR forums as one of the most knowledgeable and versatile bike technicians in the country

As a small bike shop, I pay less on overhead and it shows in my pricing. Call for pricing on anything you need from service to the purchase of products. I can help with most repairs, service, and custom tuning. Most of the time I can get you the best price on bike parts and gear.
