I'd hit it, but I bruise like a peach.
Nice lefty conversion Glad to see people using them! But how did you use fix the bottom clamp to the steerer tube? It looks like you pinned it. Did it slide in o.k. or did you have to press it in?
Thanks. The version I have is the bolted Alum. Lefty max. It's not bonded like the carbon max. Installation was pretty easy. I just tapped, tightened, and riveted it in place.

Hi what made you go down the hardtail route???
Are you asking me? Sorry, it gets quite confusing in these long threads; the quote feature makes things easier to understand.
