was a fun project where the customer came off a Cannondale Scalpel
with the Carbon Lefty Fork. He loved the Lefty so much he decided
to try and keep it. We located the 123 racing company that makes an
aftermarket converter so you can use the Cannondale Lefty fork on
any 1 1/8" head tube frame. We took a lot of the parts his old
Cannondale and set up the fork for him At first we were a little worried
that the 110 fork might off set the frame angles a little too much,
but after completing the build the bike looked and worked great.
Unfortunatley I messed up and deleted some of the photos I had taken...this
was the only remaining picture we had. I'll get more and post them
down to view some pictures we did manage to take before it left the
shop...If you have questions about these project bikes please feel
free to e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
and we'd be happy to help as much as we can.
Updates 5/1/08 - Don made the leap to SRAM a little
while ago. Below are some updated photos of this unique bike build.
The bike works great he has had zero issues with handling or other
with this fork configuration.
