    Paging Lefty Owners.

    I have seen some posts regarding the Lefty, and want to share what seems to be a little known fact. You can change the Head Angle on a Lefty, Lefty Max, and Jake by loosening the clamps, and sliding the strut back abd forth in the clamps. There is a guide slot to keep everything straight, and to prevent you from getting the crowns too close to the tire. I am not sure if everyone knows this, so I thought I would share.By sliding the clamps down on the strut, the ha gets steeper, and the steering gets quicker.

    I just wanted everyone to know about it. I read posts from people saying how they can change ha with other forks by reducing the travel, and the Lefty can do that without a travel adjustment.

    yea, i just read some posts where people were talking about putting fox talas forks on a jekyll and stuff. What a waste of time and money. The left is adjustable like you said, requires no maintenance, i'll be riding while there changing seals, and trying not to scratch there stanchions. And i hope they don't mind the horrible loss in steering stiffness from those forks. But everyone is entitled to there opinion.

    unfortunately this adjustment can't be done to the carbon fork.
