    27.5" or 29" Lefty with 26" frame?

    I just bought an XL 26" Flash carbon hi mod frame off eBay. Headtube length is 134mm.

    Could I use a Lefty made for a 27.5 or 29 wheel? The 26" flavor are becoming a rarity.

    Can the clamp spacing be changed by swapping out the top part of the fork?

    Whose idea was it to make so many different sized components?

    My Prophet has the same headtube length. I have a MAX 140 on it setup with 27.5's and no travel restriction. It was originally the 26" fork for my bike. No mods. If I went to 29 on the front, I would have to reduce travel to 110mm. I think most older 29'er Lefties are just travel reduced 26" Lefties.
    My name is Chris and I ride a Prophet 650b with a Lefty.
