What tires do you use? I assume tubeless as well?

1. what other than aesthetics is the benefit of a leftie fork (i love the way they look, just want to know what to tell the people who will be asking me all the questions)
2. how do i run power on such a crank? stages? id prefer srm. any thoughts? ive got a 50/34 srm crank. could i use that?
3. i want to run the bike on long rides on dirt roads here in australia. its the corrugations that mainly worry me. i'm on the right track right? like why not buy a mountain bike with full suspension for same thing? is it just preference or is dual suspension more for very uneven surfaces?
4. would i achieve a similar outcome with a cx bike with a one of those lauf grit forks?
5. you could race cx with a slate for sure right?

Unless you've got something altogether different, it's Industry Nine Torch which has been around for a few years now.

jefftillack wrote:Knowing nothing about the Slate, does it have a lockout on the fork at all (ala most mtb's)??? I know Cannondale make great bikes, but I just can't get past the one fork thing. To me it just doesn't look right/balanced. But I've not heard anything bad about the setup so it obviously works. Hope you enjoy it.
