    Scalpel Lefty front hub difference 2016 vs 2017

    Is there a design difference (i.e offset / width) on the lefty front hub from the scalpel 2016 and scalpel-si 2017 wheels?

    Just want to know if I can use my front wheel as is from my old scalpel, or do I need some adapter plate?

    I know about the AI offset on the rear.

    Lefty 2.0 hub is the same as that used for the supermax and hybrid sl

    In other words. It is not the same then.. The old scalpel was just the normal lefty hub?

    2016 MODELS had the Lefty hybrid SL if I'm not mistaken.

    The classic Lefty hub is 50 mm. The spindle starts right from the middle of the fork in Lefty 1. Lefty 2.0/Supermax 2 hub is 60mm and in the fork the spindle starts from the side. You can use the classic hub with Lefty 2.0 with a different break adapter.

    This.

    But the new wider Lefty 60 will enable a bigger spoke dish angle >> brace your rims better, so generally try to stick with the Lefty 60 rather than the legacy Lefty 50.

    The old hub will fit on the new fork (with above adapters) but the new hub will not fit on the old fork.

    I've decided to rebuild my front wheel with a new Tune cannondall 2.0 hub. Not to keen on all sort of adaptor plates.

    It's not a fancy adapter, it's just a different model Cannondale brake mount. I had to buy one because Stans is still using older hubs and I didn't know that when I ordered my wheels. I'f rather have the wider hub if course, but it wasn't a deal breaker.
