    Lefty Question (FLASH 29er Carbon)

    Rode my Flash 29er Carbon for the first time today, very nice bike, however 10 miles into the ride, a squeaking/rubbing noise started at the headtube every time I turned the handlebars. Very annoying! Almost fingers across the chalkboard annoying.

    This is my first C-dale and first Lefty. Any help with trouble shooting would be appreciated.

    This is not uncommon and is usually the headset bearings making noise in the headtube. All you have to do is have the shop remove the lefty and grease the bearing races, then replace. The noise will be GONE.
