    Putting a C'dale Lefty on a 29r...

    Has anyone done this? Is it possible? I saw the Flash 1 at leadville and was amazed! I'd love to slip a Lefty on my Pivot 429!!!

    I have a Lefty on my Pivot 429. It is pretty easy to do and works very well.

    Project 321 does lefties. Lighter than the C'Dale and has warranty.

    Do a search for UberMach429. He has a sweet setup.

    In addition to the Project 321 adapter, you also need to reduce the travel by 30mm if you're buying a Lefty that was made for a 26" bike. MendonCycleSmith rebuilt a Lefty Speed Carbon for me that was in bad shape and made the spacer mods, now it's working great on my Dos Niner.

    I have a Scott Scale 29er with a Lefty Max Carbon 130 PBR on it

    I STRONGLY suggest contacting Craig at MendonCycle. He's really cool and really wants to help. He's been my go to guy every step of the way. It's an easy conversion and has been awesome so far. He's walked me through it and I've done all the work myself but he has a fast turnaround if you simply want to send it to him.
