    lefty carbon 29er xlr vs lefty 29er xlr weight? (scalpel 29er 1 vs 2)

    Looks like I'm going to give a scalpel 29er a whirl. torn between the 1 and 2. I actually have some hollowgram sl cranks already, and due to my grip shift affinity I'll move over my XO 9 speed stuff.

    Tricon wheels I would likely sell, eventually and go with custom enve's...

    So, wondering if anyone knows what the weight difference is between the carbon xlr and regular XLR lefty. Ultimately it's just that upper tube of weight that I can't imagine is more than maybe 100 grams?

    So, if anyone has had a chance to weigh them that would be awesome.

    Thanks.

    100g,
    but in my experience a difference in durablility.
    i went through 3 carbons, cdale took me back to the AL, and then they created w/ the OPI AL. it has been the best lefty ever, less prone to bearing migration. I'd take a look at that as well well you are making your decision, depending on how rough the terrain you ride.
    cheers,
    holiday
