It's called a "Lefty" Jim. You may have seen them on other bikes. :wink:

Did you do anything special to mount that fat tire on a Lefty?
Great bike, a Lefty and Horst Leitner 4 bar rear suspension, can it get any better?

2009 Rockhopper Comp 29er, just put on a Manitou Tower Pro fork last week as well as Shimano Deore m615 hydraulic brakes 180/160mm. I am also entertaining the idea of getting some SPD pedals, as I have never ridden clipless before.

Not the best pic, but its all I've got right now. (Stony Creek Pines)

What's that brown stuff on the ground?
It's not your strength or skill. It's your level of commitment.

I haven't seen it in a long time but I THINK it's called dirt or something. But it might not exist anymore.

Thanks Matt. I just couldn't think of the name of it. I hope I live to see it again. I bet he's ready to stomp that Rockhopper on some fine Michigan soil!

Uses custom clamps from mendoncyclesmith. There are also inverted fat forks available, and some have used certain models of older DH forks.

This. And yes, that bike will not likely leave the ground. Not with me on it, at least. :D

Strange, I thought the point of dropper posts was to enhance flow during climbing and descents; not for getting air. Can't say I've seen a DJ bike that has a dropper post, but what do I know?


http://reviews.mtbr.com/dropper-seatpost-round-up

The concept is make a seatpost that fully extends during climbs for proper leg extension and allow it to drop down during descending while the rider keeps riding on the bike. This allows the rider to lower the center of gravity and use the body to move around the bike to center it to maintain balance and traction. And since the rider does not need to get off the bike (twice each time), the rider is able to maintain flow and momentum which is critical in difficult sections of the trail.

Bob,
My wife is a "Lefty" but I call her "Mono-Arm" as well. :lol:
