I am seriously considering a Lefty and am wondering where the best place to buy for value/ cheapness is?
Discussions of the merits of a Lefty aside, I think I would be looking for a 2013 Carbon XLR on the basis that:
- The 2013 should hopefully require a little less TLC than pre-2013. Is this just marketing BS though?
- I want to save as much weight as possible and the carbon only seems £100 or so more expensive than the alloy and I can't find any reports of the 2013 having the bearing seating issues of older carbon legged forks
- XLR purely because there is no 2013 Carbon PBR!
As far as I can see Qwerty seems to be the best place to buy new. Even older forks second hand on ebay seem to be going for similar prices to the new 2013's from Qwerty!
Are there any hidden gems of a shop I might be missing to try and buy a "cheap" Lefty?
Many thanks in advance, Dan
