X9 Crank, XO R Der, Avid BB7s w/Ashima Ai2 Rotors, X9 shifters, Easton xc70 riser bar, 45Nrth Dillingers, Surly Rolling Daryls, used 26x2.75 tubes..Atac Carbon pedals...Bike rides great, handles as well as my Scalpel Carbon 1, climbs like a goat....would highly recommend, you won't be disappointed. Bought from Freewheeler Bike in Grand Rapids Mich, excellent bike shop....

    Issee you had a Fastback before this, did you have the Hadley hubs on the Umas? If so, how do the Borealis hubs feel by comparison??

    Very nice, how did you get the lefty on it. I have a Scalpel 1 and was looking on placing a lefty on the Yampa. Just use a hub for a lefty, and is the tire centered? Looks sweet...

    71gto455, it is a little complicated (and expensive), but start here Cannondale, Professional and Trusted Lefty and Head Shock Service Performed by Craig Smith

    You need the custom clamps, an older style Lefty with removable clamps, and I had mendoncyclesmith put an 2012 XLR damper with remote in mine. That is optional. MCS is great btw. The wheel build was complicated. It is offset of course and I used a Project321 adapter + a Surly Pugs adapter. Dished it up just right. Then I put it on the bike and I had to move the thing over another cm to get proper clearance for the 4.8" tire.

    I haven't weighed it but I'm guessing around 28-29lbs. My goal was sub-30lb and it is easily there.

    ^ cheers. Yes, the rear mech internal routing is perfect for the dropper cable, it exits at just the right spot.

    I am 5'8" with a 32" inseam and on a med but what works for me might not for someone else. I say compair the Geo chart with a bike that you know fits you well and that you are comfortable on. I do know the stand over will be tight for ya on a med especially if you run a Bud and Lou.
