Go left young Muk...
Just wanted to throw up a few pics, mostly by way of thanking Craig (Mr.MCS) for pulling the trigger on getting these clamps made up. Even got spokes and advice so I didn't have to mess around with spokecalc and re-purposing the rolling Darryl was a snap.
It was driving me crazy seeing my Lefty max dangling uselessly from my Prophet, and now all that sweetness (well about 110mm of it) is smoothing out the tromped-on refrozen crud out there at the moment. The ride just got sweeter...
Looks fantastic, well done!
Have you got anymore pictures showing the hub and clearance between the tyre and fork?
(Tyre spelt like that 'cos I'm English)!
Looks great Ben! Thanks for posting pics of them in the wild!
Just got word today that my NOS Leftys should be shipping from Cannondale.
Spreading the fatty love, far and wide now!
Hi Craig, can you tell a little more about the NOS Leftys? Travel? Damper? Cost?

Need more details? Drop me a line.....
Awesome! I figured it wouldn't be long until somebody put one of these on a Muk. Lovin' mine on my Pugs... headed out for some more single track in the AM.
Looks pretty moto.
What does it do to the HTA?
Depends on what fork you utilize.

Totally tunable as far as initial set up goes. So as long as you factor that into what you do, it can remain the same or be tweaked to personal choice.
Didn't do the math, but have a digital angle gauge, which read 70 degrees when zeroed on the floor and stuck on the headtube in stock form. With lefty on, (and topped out in the clamps, max possible travel) 69 degrees. Picked up 1/4" at the BB, so now 12 1/4".
For me, both of those are good changes...
RE: clearance between fork and tire, no pic at the moment, but looks to be about 12mm between sidewall bulge and the breather filter cover bit the way it's currently setup, there are variables at work for sure with a fork that can be rotated in clamps that project from the headtube and can also be rotated, and wheel offset adjustability... For me I had to get my hands on it to really see how it all relates.
So true. It's kind of hard to articulate just how flexible the set up really is, glad you're figuring it out...
