Anyone have experience with the lefty conversion kit?

I have been hearing that there are problems with the conversion kit from my buddies in the industry and was wondering whether anyone here had experienced problems with creaking, loosing, etc.



A lefty is big commitment.

Is your head tube big enough to accommodate it? I think it requires a 1.5" compatible frame.

Nope there is a conversion kit that makes it adaptable which is the premise of my question. Some are reporting that the conversion kit has mechanical issues. Judging by other forum responses perhaps this is not the best place to get information from other industry professionals.

Try the MTB forum. Might have better luck.
