    New question here. 2013 Alloy Lefty Only offered in 100mm. WTH???

    Kind of in a bind,
    building up a rize 26er frame and need to put a 120mm PBR alloy lefty on it. My options are 100mm alloy PBR, or the Carbon xlr 100mm and 130mm.

    Really dont want or need the carbon, not worth the extra money.

    Nope, they want to drive you to their bikes, plain and simple.

    Barring that, you need to buy what they sell, sad as it is.

    Used market?

    Sad but true.... Buy an older bike and fit what u want in the older Alloy. The alloy is far more direct and harder through the wheels, bars and this frame to your whole body. Some love this aspect. It has the solid factor. Whilst carbon takes away much if this feeling calming the chatter.

    Good luck in what you do. I would like to have an Alloy but the hi-mod 26er is just as fun for me
