    The problem with my Lefty is that the stem takes up all the space where the i-bert would clamp onto. I don't know that you you can get a fork tube extender to make it all work.

    My old Stumpjumper is set up to run the i-bert. The Cannondale has to pull the actual mountain bike duties.

    Nope, won't work.

    And yes, I bit ironic about the Tinker sponsorship. From his blog ( http://tinkerjuarez.blogspot.com/2008/05/joshua.html ) he is using his iBert on a Cdale with a Fox fork

    Why do not you have that soft orange seat liner on your iBert?



    Came with mine.

    Back when I ordered my first one from Amazon (about May of '08), it didn't come with one. Kelli from iBert sent me one later...I think just before Interbike of last year.

    I mention that, that was my first one. A friend of mine was interested in the iBert so I let him "borrow" it. His son loved it so much, I hated to ask for it back. So I decided to just pay it forward, and bought a second one. The newer one came with the orange pad, already.

    My son still loves his iBert, but he's getting close to the max size (in leg length, not weight). Will probably be time to pay it forward again, in another couple of months...
