Hi,

I have a Cannondale Bad Boy 4 (2012) and since putting CX-tires on it, I'm getting more and more into riding the dirt.
So I want to buy a Lefty with 26" wheels.

But my head tude is 17cm high (See picture below)

Would it fit?

I have seen several badboys fitted with Lefty fork so it is doable - check them out on ebay.

No, would say it doesn't work with that when the head tube is so long.

There are bad boys for Lefty/Fatty. So if you want one you need to change frame/bike.

^^Agreed. That tall BB4 head tube will not accommodate a Lefty. Your current frame is designed for the travel only in your Solo fork.
