    Joined the lefty club - Now with PICS :)

    Finally!!!
    I found s good deal on a used setup, then found that I couldn't use it because steer tube was 1/2" too short. Anyways, sat in the spare room for a couple months, finally ordered new set of clamps. It is on!!!
    First ride tomorrow morning. Can't wait.

    I didn't want to post shiny pictures from my spare room. Maiden voyage for the 9zero7....leftified....was this morning at brown county state park in Indiana. Got in 30 miles. Oh baby, I am liking the lefty already. Cannot believe I had this sitting around for the past couple months, procrastination sheesh.
    This thing is stiff, zero flex, goes where I point it, and I was not being gentle with it today. Very happy

    Nice! What lefty is that? It looks like mine(2006 lefty speed) but with a different top.
    Did it change your HT angle much? Mine really made mine feel very upright hybrid bike-ish so I switched to a shorter stem with drop bars to get myself back down.

    I love mine though, good lord, they are amazing forks!

    Looking good!

    One pointer? Run that cable inside the fork leg for cleaner routing......

    Enjoy!

    I ran out of time last night, but yes the cable is rerouted now
    It's a ti version with about 80mm travel i believe??? Not sure exactly, got it used off here. I have some spacers under the stem now when i had none on my maverick, so I'm sitting more upright. Might drop it down slightly.
    I just can't get over how stiff it is.

    Oh good, now I can sleep at night!

    It's 70, started at 100mm, limited 30 for 29er/fattie compatibility.

    Ride it like you stole it!
