    Lefty !

    Anyone know where I can find the Thule adapter for my lefty? My local shop can get it but it's 90.00. I would think I could somewhere less expensive.

    Still not super cheap: Amazon.com: Hurricane Fork Up for Cannondale Lefty Fork: Automotive

    I didn't search long, someone else may have it for less.

    Thule, Yakima and Hurricane are the only ones making them, although they are all produced by Hurricane.
    PM me, I may be able to help you out.

    Yeah, unless you can find one used, they run about $90.

    Old thread but how well do they work and how much of a pain is it to remove the wheel all the time?

    They work excellent, it's a pain in the ass.

    It takes less than 30 seconds to remove the wheel and install the Fork Up, not really a PIA.

    Agreed. Plus the wear/tear on the caliper and hub bolts with two on/off cycles per ride day made me queasy.

    I went with a 1up rack instead and haven't looked back.
