what's that thing weigh in at? Looks pretty darned light!
Your frame is carbon, right?BertP said:With 26" wheels and RR 2.1 its 9.5 kg. Add appr 500 gr ..
I'll answer for myself, since this was my criteria for my new bike......a Flash F1 (26")PaintPeelinPbody said:I'm not meaing this to be 29er coolaid talk, but why not just go for the Flash 29?
Tire options, wheel options, etc
1) Mine rides straight with hands off the bar, but I never ride without hands on dirt.BertP said:The Lefty is a very good fork.
Stiff, precise steering, light..
But, twho things...
Cannot ride (easily) with my hands off the bar (to stretch a sometimes painfull lower back).. when i do, the bike goes left...
The Flash frame (large) is a bit short for me, so i need a stem 130mm, which is not available for a Lefty/headshok.
With equivalent head angles, a shorter stem will have a quicker steering feel. I don't know the angles of the tuarine vs flash, but generally speaking, a shorter stem should speed up steering.BertP said:My former bike was a Taurine in XL, i used a 120mm SI-stem and Lefty then. The fit was perfect. But, i switched to a Flash in L, so now i need a longer stem.
Handling is noticably quicker, so its one way or the other. Nothing to worry about
I run the lefty. Just plug and play.ptownvelo said:What fork are you running on your Flash 650b frame?? I'm looking at getting a Flash and running it 650b style! Any chance you'll sell me yours???????????!!!!!!!!!!!
