    lefty 29 air pressure survey

    How much air pressure are you running your Lefty 29? (preferably late model)

    a) pressure
    b) volume reducer type/size
    c) year/model/travel
    d) rider weight
    e) bike weight

    I'll start....

    a) Just started using it and trying different pressures... currently at 150psi
    b) homemade 60mm "dogbone"
    c) 2011 PBR 110mm
    d) 165#
    e) 21#

    I have two 29er Leftys.

    a) 120psi
    b) (1) CC thudbuster elastomer - about 35mmm
    c) 2011 XLR 120mm travel
    d) 185#
    e) 26# 2011 SC Tallboy

    a) 110 psi
    b) (1) CC thudbuster elastomer - about 35mmm
    c) 2009 converted to 2011 XLR 100mm travel
    d) 185#
    e) unk. weight - 2011 Superfly

    I started with higher pressure but found I liked lower pressure with thicker damper oil. I changed all of my Lefty Dampers to 7.5wt. Golden Spectro from the stock 5.0 wt.
    Also, the stock 60mm reducer made it ramp up too quickly for my taste.

    a) 85psi
    b) Stock
    c) 2011 PBR, changed travel from 120 to 135mm, 20mm travel reduction for 29er use.
    d) 170#
    e) 26.5# 2009 Ventana El Rey

    You're running 150psi? That's a lot! Should be locked out most of the time I imagine.
