    Hi,

    Just wanted to find out if your bike pulls to the right/left when you let go of the handlebars?

    Thanks

    Not a bit mate. Ride no handed and bike tracks straight. Feels weird as you would think it should dive to one side but doesnt. Lefty's are the bollox.......super stiff and very plush ride.

    Hope this helps.

    That does look very nice indeed. How are you finding the grip shift?

    Ah well that's a different story rubbish tbh.


    Totally kidding, still stupid light weight. Weights less than my 20" BMX...!

    Absolutely lovely build mate! Quite the low weight as well. Always wanted to try a lefty but I never manage, but I hear nothing but amazing reviews for them.

    That's a great looking bike and i'm pretty certain that type of fork was around for a short while back in the 80's and i'm not sure but i think it was Cannondale back then but it's still a unique looking bike 8) .

    I think I got to work on my cable routing to see if its the reason for pushing the wheel to the right. Everytime, I let go of my handlebars, the bike dives to the right. Are you using the stock cable housing provided with the bike?

    Yeah, just as it came with regards to cabling.

    Ace build. I love these Flash frames, especially in that finish.

    Love the gripshift.
    I suffered from numbness in my hands after a long day and the grip shift has seemed to fix it??

    Shifting is very natural and dont need to change hand position atall.
