I did do a search but with no results..

would i be able to put a lefty on a ripley ? and will it mess the bikes geometry ...

My SL rides to sweet with a 140 lefty I want to do the same with a Ripley..

I believe you need some form of offset ? do the 29er Leftys not have this ?

thanks

Why not buy the new supermax lefty? Should be perfect for the Ripley
Can't do it, although it would be rad. The new supermax has 56 offset and 130 mm travel making it perfect for that bike. Problem, the new for requires a 1.5" straight steerer unlike the non supermax version. Won't work tried it and no possible adaption..., bummer

Try checking out project 321 or similar. Should be easy to make a steerer that fixes that issue. Jake at p321 is "fairly" resourceful.

My LBS's owner tells me he talked with Jake and Jake is running a Ripley with a Lefty SuperMax. I'm still interested in getting one for my Ripley.

If you look at the picture thread for Ripley now, there is a user that has now got the supermax on a reply. Looks fantastic! Should sell my HD+ and get it :)
