    Travel of CFR's Lefty?

    Anyone knows the CFR guys, Fontana and Fumic, they are using the true 29er Lefty, or just a 26er Lefty and put spacers inside to reduce the travel to 70mm for racing? To make the front end lower as well? Thanks!

    No idea whether it's changed but pretty sure someone posted up last year they were running 70mm (100mm reduced).

    I know they are running 70mm travel on the F29, just wonder it's a 26" Lefty or 29er Lefty!

    Not sure which one they start with, but I know that the reason they do it is not to have less travel but to lower the front end of the bike.

    But I want to know they are using 26er Lefty or 29er Lefty on the F29? If it's a 29er 90mm Lefty and reduces its travel to 70mm, the total fork length remains the same, just less travel but not lower front end.
