8) I do like the look of that.

I've recently joined the Left camp and have to say I'm more than a little impressed.

You soon get over the single blade and my worries of flex... Well they didn't! Lockouts spot on as well. Great forks!!!
I did get caught out a few times this weekend carrying to much speed into corners. The bike just surges forward at a crazy rate!

Looking forward to seeing it. One of the most desirable Merlins IMO. I take it that its pretty light with the lefty? I have a 2003 Cannondale F1000SL with a Fatty up front which feels crazy light compared to my previously owned xc hardtails despite its decent but not very trick build. Was thinking of a Lefty for it just cos its weird looking lol
