    Difference between M/L and XXL Lefty Max?

    I'm planning a Lefty 29er conversion. I saw two candidates on EBay, both a 130mm Lefty Max. One said it was M/L, the other said XXL. What is the difference? Is it just the length of the steerer tube?

    What Lefty Max are they? Recent ones that are air sprung, yes, the difference will be the longer steerer and the upper clamp. Older ones were all the same sizes but they were coil sprung and the springs were size specific.

    OK, so they are older pre-2005 models so the difference between the sizes is the spring fitted inside. Models that came on bigger bikes had stiffer springs to fit to the usually heavier riders. Apart from that, they are the same.
