    “if you are into xc 29ers,you really must ride this one!!!!”

    The Good:

    every bit of momentum from pedal input goes into forward motion,rails like a banshee on steroids,lefty fork is awesome!!!!component spec is spot on!!!!

    The Bad:

    the fizik saddle didn't agree with my bum

    Overall Review:

    I always wanted a lefty fork.i thought about putting on on my diamondback sl super,but changed my mind once I test rode my 2012 cannondale scalpel 29er carbon 2.you only live once,so I took some money from my 401k account and went for it.have not looked back since then.
