Nice bike Rob Nice
Whats the build plan in the fork dept' Triple or single crown ?
Well ........... I think this model/year came with a lefty fitted but Ive never ridden a lefty, and I think the bike is for trail centre/XC type stuff so Im undesided what to put on YET!
I think the Lefty is great. The Super V I have is better balanced travel-wise front to rear than it would have been with the Headshok that was on it. The problem is that getting a Lefty and Lefty wheel can be rather expensive. The Lefty and wheel I got off eBay cost half what they normally go for, I was lucky. Damper cartridge was needing oil, described as such on eBay, I took it out re-filled it, bled it and put it back in.
Another thing about Leftys and Headshoks too, for that matter, is they need special tools to maintain them yourself, which are expensive to buy if you can get them. I was lucky, Edinburgh Bicycles had a Lefty castle tool in their New Year sale for £8's odds, that are normally around £60+.
