    Leftified NON-Cannondale bikes - post your pic's!

    OK, just for fun, post 'em up.

    Ibis Mojo, Carbon 140 w/pbr
    21.8 lbs race mode, 22.5 all mountain mode

    OK.... fast forward a few weeks and here is my Tallboy with a conversion kit, so my Lefty Max is now a 120mm... stolen from my now forkless Ibis.

    Maiden ride was awesome, especially noticable in the nasty decents with ruts and rocks...

    Tallboy in this configuration for every day riding is 23.4 lbs. No real weight weenie stuff.

    2008 Yeti ASR Carbon. Currently 18.25 lbs with a X-King Race Sport front tire (580g, huge frikin tire!). Under 18 lbs with Race King SS 2.2s front and rear. 2009 Lefty Speed Carbon, and lightweight carbon steerer adapter (82g) from Mattias Hellore.

    By the way, anyone wanna sell their Lefty carbon 130 or 140 PBRs? I wanna build an ASR5 Carbon. Figure I could come in under 19lbs.

    Don't know what the Cannondale 1 1/8 adapter weighs, but my Project 321 adapter was about 175-180g without the star nut. I'm pretty sure I paid around 75 euros for it. It was back in the summer of '09.

    Hey guys, I just got my adapter kit from jake at project 321. I'm about to bring it all in to my LBS to have them set it up for me. Jake mentioned that since I'm using a Chris King headset, it would have to be altered (cut or drilled...) I can't remember what the instructions were. Anyone familiar with that??

    Thanks!

    Thanks!
    First! Make sure you have the right adapter. If you have the bonded/carbon adapter make sure the black pieces on it fit properly and are completely flush with the clamps. The black pieces that are clamped on my first one were 5mm to long and I had to send it back. Not Project 321's fault it was a mistake by the retailer.

    On another note. I have a King headset (Inset) and it was a b***h to slide the adapter through. You will need patience. Its a very tight fit but you can get it through without drilling or cutting. I managed to. Good luck and enjoy. They make a great product!

    Tallboy 29er Lefty

    I stole the Lefty from my converted Mojo Ibis (first post up top) added an air volume reducer, 20mm of spacers and now my Tallboy is Leftyfied.

    Maiden ride was today: awesome. Even more so when it got choppy and nasty. Definitely a better (stiffer more stable) feel when the front wheel is being jerked around in the rough when compared to my Fox... of course that is what got me into Lefies was that point and shoot feel. Also, the FOx seemed to "pack up" in stutter bumps and the Lefty stayed nice and compliant.

    23.4 lbs in this semi- XC/All Mountain configuration... not bad for a FS 29er without a bunch of weight weenie stuff.

    23.5lbs for that tallboy?

    would like to see a spec list

    heres my leftified yeti

    23.5lbs with tubes, need to tubeless the wheels, and have a 2011 pbr damper unit coming to replace the coil unit in the lefty, which should drop more weight

    custom di2 shifter from Newbury Bike Park in California

    tried to run the front mech on the yeti but couldnt get it to work

    spec is

    Cannondale Hollowgram SL Cranks, 32t e.13 Chainring and e.13 XCX-ST Chainguide
    Carbon Lefty with Project 321 Steerer
    Tune Hubs, DT XCR330 Carbon Rims and Sapim CX-Ray Spokes
    Tune Headset and Seat Clamp
    Edge Composites Seatposta and Bars

    Not all that hard:

    Medium size
    Santa Cruz semi XTR build (Avid Elixr CR Mag brakes)
    Salsa flat bars
    Rear Stans ZTR race wheel
    Front Stans Crest rim on sapim spokes on Project 321 hub
    Crank Bro's 4 Ti Eggbeaters
    Lefty Max carbon 140 converted to 120mm for 29er.

    Nothing really too special and I don't have to baby it. I can lose a half pound on race tires, but then I run scared (of sidewall slashes).

    I am looking for that SC Tallboy build that was like 21 lbs.... it's here on the forum somewhere - yeikes! Can't imagine that is every day ride-able.

    A friend of mine has her medium built at 22.6 lbs... but lot's more carbon and $$ than me and running light race tires.

    Tires and wheels are really where a lot of the additional weight is, so I concentrated in those areas...

    regarding the spacer stack, there is only 1x 15mm maybe spacer above the upper crown, its there so i can run a 70mm stem (any lower and the bars hit the lefty adjuster) the yeti only has a 91mm head tube and the lefty crowns are fixed at 137.5mm so you need to spacer accordingly

    im running an e13 xc bb with a special cannondale axle with the lip machined off

    i bought this kit

    http://www.cannondale-parts.de/epage...Products/KP094

    but stripped one of the cups removing it from an old frame, hence why im now using the e13

    Man I've been lusting after that frame since I saw it on the 650b Board. That is one nice bike there. What's it weigh Dekerf?

    22.5#'s with pedals and bottle cages. Just the way you see it in the picture with the exception of Pacenti Quasi-Moto tires opposed to the Neo-Motos shown here.

    It's 1 1/2" of rear travel. The front is a Speed Carbon 110. No travel reduction required for 650b. The frame is a mixture of Easton Scandium and Easton Aluminum tubes along with Ti seat stays and Ti flex plate.
