lefty finally installed on Fatty
I finally went ahead and put my mcs lefty on(i have had it for a few months).
Wow, this is definitely the nicest front suspension I have ever owned.
It raised up the front a little, and the increased trail is causing a little self steer, but that is managable. I may get an angleset to put in backwards, as well as redishing the wheel to a little less offset, and raking the clamps out a little, but I only have about 10 mm clearance with the marge light and floater.
I also feel like I really need a large now. A medium was already a bit short for me, but the taller slacker front end makes it feel more so. Anyone need a medium Fatty frame? I may need to order a large Fatty, or maybe a 907.
I will post a picture when it uploads from my phone. I was going to try and get the frame shot peened to make it a close match to the machined aluminum finish on the lefty, but I may wait and do that to a larger frame, or maybe get something already shiny, like a Carver. Is the 907 available in polished? there's a picture, but no selection on the color menu.

Nice, you're going to enjoy that fork.
Bonus that flat tires up front are almost fun to fix, so easy.
MMM pic! Looks good
The more you ride, the easier it gets........
the easier it gets, the more you ride.
autodoctor91, what bars are those on your rig? My wife took over my 9-0-7 and I need to get her some thing with a little back sweep. Plus the white will work well with her new color scheme. I just changed the tires for her and it was great only having to remove the rear wheel as she has a lefty also.
They are On One Mary bars. very nice, and quite inexpensive.
Looks like they are only 650mm or so though, no wonder you feel cramped!

You're turning black metallic.
I put some Sc-32s on a my pug(same frame geometry as a Fatty) and had to switch my Mary bars out - anything less than 700mm felt very twitch and a painful to steer on long rides.
+1 wider bars are cheap and can give you the feel of a bigger TT. You can get various rises and sweeps depending on what your wrists like.

I think I might want even more sweep, especially if wider. My wrists don't like turning in, and my elbows don't like going out. Maybe I could find some big bar ends that I could mount my brakes and shifter on, and use the original bar with those like a bullhorn bar, or
I might just try a longer stem first.
I see hills.
I want to climb them.
