Yeti 575 - Review
"Where many bikes using this style of suspension design have a pivot on the rear triangle, Yeti relies on the shaping and custom butting of the seat stays to provide enough compliance as the rear shock goes through its travel" So the aluminum seatstays flex in lieu of a pivot near the wheel. Hmm... what could go wrong?! A bold design move. Be interesting to see how this turns out.

Press Release: Cannondale OverMountain Team Moves to SuperMax For the EWS Series
Lefty is ideal for small to mid travel category. A 10 inch travel lefty on a MX bike makes no sense, which is why u dont see any.

Fair enough, but for me - performance first. Looks are second.

Press Release: Cannondale OverMountain Team Moves to SuperMax For the EWS Series
I've been riding my lefty max 140 on the trails in port moody and I can assure you the lefty is awesome. Especially for BC where chassis stiffness is important as well as small bump compliance. And I've owned alot of single crown forks by fox & RS. The leftys are not well represented here in BC because of all the proprietary parts -- Cannondale frame, 1.56" headset, lefty specific stem. That's where cannondale went wrong. I love my lefty but the prophet frame is just 'meh'.

So people wont ride them because they don't like the looks? Just plain dumb. I've been MTB'ing for 20 years, and got my first lefty a few years back (lefty max 140) and i admit I was skeptical. Hands down the best fork I've ever had. The design is superior. So stiff, plush, and light for what it is.

Cannondale Trigger 29 Carbon 1- Review
...with the most notable talking points coming courtesy of the Lefty. Here's the thing: it is so torsionally rigid that it makes other forks of similar travel feel as if they've gone back to quick release axles and 28mm stanchion tubes. That sort of rigidity goes beyond the common descriptors that we'd usually insert at this point, and contributes to a direct front end feel that simply has no peers... quoted for awesomness and truthiness. Love my lefty!

Sette Reken hardtail 18" - brand new frame built up!

$499 CAD
I built up this bike but ended up not needing it. BRAND NEW PARTS ARE: frame rear wheel headset front & rear derailleurs brake levers lock-on grips pedals brake pads Fork is an older 80mm bomber with not much use on it (wife's old bike). Air fork so pump it up nice and stiff for commuting or set soft for trail. Deore Cranks also came from wifes old bike. Not many miles, few scratches. Brakes are Magura Louise FR calipers mated to shimano levers 7" front / 6" rear rotors (great power) Brand new pads 28" wide handlebar Rear wheel is formula cartridge bearing hub Front wheel just laced up Great bike! been ridden around the neighborhood to 7-11 so a bit dirty. A much better buy than whats available at the bike shop for the same money. Tons of new parts. If your between 5'-8" and 6' bike should fit you well.
