    Hi all, I just bought a lefty pbr 130mm to install on my rize 4. i have read somewhere that regular 1.5 headset won't fit. can you guys tell me which aftermarket headset is compatible with leftys?

    The Lefty steerer tube is actually 1.56", hense why it won't work with the newer 1.5 STD.
    The C'dale's Si headset is the only one that will work with Lefty & a cannondale frame as far as I'm aware.
    Get one from you local dealer or 2nd hand off eBay. Just expect to replace the bearings in a 2nd hand one, so price them up 1st to compare with the 'new' price.

    Edit: did you get a stem with the lefty? You'll need a lefty specific one of those too... & a wheel!
