    Weight is not a problem but price without lefty is wrong.

    I think for around that price you should be able to get a good complete bike with a Lefty. The Lefty is really worth having and if you don't get it now it is very expensive to buy as a single item, it will also be niggling at you and one day you will want the Lefty!
    I would always try to buy a complete bike the way you want, it is MUCH cheaper than part by part, which I have also done.
