    Ritchey P-29er + Lefty - good idea? bad idea?

    I'm a Lefty believer but also just picked up a P-29er frame....Has anyone had any challenges with the campy style headset not playing nice with a Project 321 adapter?

    Yes, it's a good idea. Works just fine (and enables you to use 29+ if you desire :-).Ritchey P-29er + Lefty - good idea? bad idea?-img_5783_1000.jpg

    Wow!
    Good to know, it fit. Is there a need for some kind of spacers to keep the tires hitting the crown or the downtube?
    When trails gets tougher, Just stand up and deliver.
