Strengths:    Super light weight, incredibly lateral stiffness compared to duo-tube counter parts, funny looks from fellow riders

Weaknesses:    Mentally tough to understand

Bottom Line:   
The PBR was a replacement for a blown Carbon Lefty 110MM SL. Although listed at 100MM, didn't really noticed the lack of 10mm difference. The internals soaked up most anything that was dished. You do have to ensure the air pressure is dialed in properly to get the best feedback from this fork. Definitely invest in a shock not use your normal tire pump. The total weight is the biggest advantage of this fork. Getting rid of one of the two tubes saves quite a bit. What is strange is when you look down and you see one fork. I think the few times I did that on the road when I first got it, I mentally pulled the front end one way or the other thinking something was broken. However it is one of the stiffest forks I have ridden on. You point the tires and that's where you go. The four sided needle bearings keeps this thing from twisting. Nothing else rides like it.

Oil leaking out from my rebound knob(Lefty DLR Speed)

I have a 09' Caffeine 29 with a 80mm Lefty speed and I've noticed oil is leaking out from my rebound knob. I've took the knob, lockout lever and top cap off and the top of the damper is dry, no oil nowhere. It feels like the few drops of Phil's tenacious oil that I put in the air chamber when I chan ...

Ultra Lefty vs. Speed Lefty Hub Spec

I read somewhere that the new Ultra Lefties use a hub with wider flanges. Does that mean a front wheel I got for my 2012 Flash29 wouldn't just bolt on to a Trigger 29?Read More »

New Lefty Hybrid Speed Sensor Mounting

I searched this forum and can't find anything specific about how to mount a speed sensor to the new hybrid Lefty's. I used to pull up the rubber boot a little and mount like that, but that won't work anymore with the new design. I tried putting the magnet on the rotor, but I have those Magura MT ... Read More »
