Which lefty on a Jekyll??
I'm thinking of switching my current super fatty dl with a new lefty but I don't know which would fit better.To tell the truth I was thinking about the MAX SPV, but would the 140cm of travel spoil the Jekyll's geometry?Also I read that it doesn't feels as good as the TPC.On the other hand, the speed dlr2 carbon seems to have "small" travel.I mostly ride cross-country to enduro.what are your opinions about this dilema??

If it's currently in the middle, or near the FR end of things, it will have enough steepening ability, to allow tuning to the way you like it to ride. If it's at or near XC, it may end up feeling a bit too FR for your wishes. The SPV does feel less plush, so that's a judgement call on your end. Good luck!
