New Lefty Fork Adaptor for Bike Transport

New Lefty Fork Adaptor for Bike Transport

The definitive solution for transporting bikes with Cannondale Lefty forks.

We have recently updated the design of our axle adaptors for Cannondale Lefty hubs – the previous iteration could only be used on the MTB variant of our Ventoux box but now, with the growing popularity of the Lefty  version of the Topstone gravel bike, we can now offer this option for the Ventoux Road box. No modification of the standard box is needed.

The new fitting is billet machined from our favoured 6061 aluminium before receiving an attractive bead blast and anodised finish – the attaching T-bolt is turned from stainless steel and features the fine-form M10 thread used in the Lefty forks.

The mounting procedure is straightforward – the main fitting is first slid over the stub axle of the Lefty fork and held in place with the T-bolt. The bike is now ready to be loaded to the box the Lefty fitting locates in our standard mounting bracket cradles and is secured with thru-axle retaining pins.

Available as an option on the Add Accessory option box when ordering a Ventoux MTB or Ventoux Road box – or as a retrofit accessory.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any queries on this or any other Buxumbox product.

For customer MW in the USA – a custom graphic wrap for his Speedwagen applied to lower side and top panels of a Buxumbox Ventoux Road box.

We don’t do many of these because the wrap is extremely labour-intensive – the results are always pleasing though!

Buxumbox for the pioneering Laverack Aston Martin .1R bike

Buxumbox for the pioneering Laverack Aston Martin .1R bike

The Rouleur Live 2024 show saw the launch of a groundbreaking collaboration between British automotive and cycling brands Aston Martin and J.Laverack, the .1R bicycle.

Four year in the making, the .1R is a triumph of engineering and aesthetics to produce the world’s most bespoke, most advanced and most meticulously engineered road bike. Full of innovation and tailored to the micron, the .1R is a flawless fusion of titanium and carbon fibre, using manufacturing techniques more commonly seen in Formula One cars.

Given the significance of this machine, it was an honour for Buxumbox to be appointed as the supplier of the box that every .1R bike will be supplied in. But this isn’t just another box – it represents the most prestigious and technically challenging project we have taken on to date, leading us to explore new materials, novel manufacturing techniques and even higher levels of execution.



The brief was to provide a box in which the bike would be mounted with only the wheels removed, with a visual impact of both interior and exterior that compliments the engineering and finish of the .1R. To achieve this we made the upper panels from high gloss prepreg carbon fibre sheet – water-jet cut to within 0.1mm, decals are screen-printed by hand with fine gold ink and the mounting brackets are CNC machined from 6061 aluminium – showpieces of both form and function.

Projects like this are our lifeblood – they drive innovation and set new standards.

Please discover the .1R bike here.

AirTag housing

AirTag housing

In response to customer requests to be able to track and locate their Buxumboxes, we’ve developed an AirTag holder for the Tourmalet, Ventoux and Stelvio boxes.

The all aluminium construction of our boxes means that placing an AirTag inside the box obstructs the signal and, in extreme cases, can even render the AirTag undetectable. The brief therefore was to design a holder that would permit a clear signal, be tamper-proof, discreetly located and protected from accidental damage.

The solution shown is a three piece design with a base firmly riveted to the underside of the box chassis, a spacer and a cap, all made from laser-cut aluminium with a black anodised finish. The AirTag is sandwiched between these components and secured with special tamper-proof socket screws (a driver bit for these screws is also supplied). This enables the AirTag to be removed for battery changes or other uses.

Available now as an option on new boxes.

(AirTag not included).

Thanks to customer CS who sent us this image of his Specialized Shiv fitted in to a slightly modified Ventoux box, avoiding the need to remove complex integrated cockpit.
