Im installing the latest Lefty Sl on my Mamasita, just waiting for a head set, and the claimed weight is 2.55 lbs. Its 2.34 on my scale.Maxrep said:I thought it was generally accepted that the carbon Lefty was the best 29er fork on several fronts. By removing 1 1/2 internal spacers, travel can be increased to near 100mm travel with most tires. Weight, I believe with all considerations, is just a touch over 3lbs.
Yes, it is expensive
haha, yeah that's what i was thinking...the lefty is kinda funkysyl3 said:the lefty is pretty good, but a stick is not a fork.
I have the latest lightest version of the Lefty on my 29er 1. I haven't weighed it off the bike though.Maxrep said:I can appreciate humor. Still though, I think the Carbon Lefty has all other 29er fork manufacturers on the ropes from the persective of performance, tracking ability, as well as weight.
It may be more than what one has budgeted for suspension and front wheel conversion, but it patently outperforms any other option I am aware of. Having raced 6 different 29ers, my last being a Lefty equipped ride, I am planning on building a new ground up 29er race bike that will most definitely be Lefty equipped. I haven't decided on all components, but the Carbon Lefty was the first stipulation.
Maxrep said:How is the availability on that fork? Is it called the SI? Are the new F29 1's shipping with those?
I'm rocking a White Brothers Rock Solid rigid right now, however I was thinking about purchasing a Reba for rougher courses/trials.chumbox said:All great forks but is no one else racing rigid?
