    Lefty Help

    ok ...bit dense on this subject but wondering if you guys could tell me the:

    Axel to crown measurement and the Offset?

    For a Lefty Speed Carbon SL once it's been taken down from 110mm to 80mm for a 29er?

    Also does reducing the travel on a lefty change the axel to crown length?

    all help would be appreciated

    Axle to crown height: 480mm and the offset or rake is 4.6mm/1.8".

    Reducing the travel doesn't change the geometry so the axle to crown length will not change and that's the point to use it for a 29er, if reducing the travel by 30mm would reduce the axle to crown by 30mm also, your tire would still hit the crown on full compression.
