    2013 26" Lefty with 650b Wheels?

    Has anyone tried this yet? Do you have to make any modifications to make it work?

    I currently use a 2007 Speed DLR with no mods and have had no issues but thinking of upgrading. Since the 2013 is a new design I wanted to make sure before I bought it. I'm planning on running Neo Moto 2.3 upfront on a 2007 Rush.

    Reply '13 26 lefty

    We just set up a 2012 Scalpel 26" closeout, which came with the new 2013 lefty, on 650b Stan's Arch with Neo Motos. Works great, our mechanic who did it loves.

    Thanks for the response! What size Neo Motos? Any adjustments to the Lefty?

    He is running 2.3s and as far as I am aware the only thing he had to do on it was set the correct sag for his weight.
