nice one.

i have the same crank and was thinking of going to a single ring, did you just buy the ring and bolts to go with it, or are they the standard fit bolts?
Thanks! I bought everything separately. Crankarms, Bottom Bracket, Ring and Bolts. Make sure if you do switch and you are not using a bash guard to use single speed bolts. You might be able to get away with standard ones but I never tried.

How is the handling with the lefty? Is it tuned to be like the G2 geometry?
I prefer the handling with the Lefty over the Fox G2 fork any day. It's stiffer, tracks better and I just really like the way the bike rides and handles with the Lefty. I would recommend this "fork" to anyone considering one.
