I'm normally the one replying to these sorts of questions, but I've got myself in a bit of a muddle and could do with some advice from the STW collective wisdom!
Bascially, I've just got a cracking deal on some Manitou Minute 130mm forks (with 20mm bolt thru) to run on my hardtail - which is likely to be ss most of the time - i've got both a 456 and an inbred at my disposal, but I can't decide which would be the better choice...
I have a full suss, so most of the riding I'll do on it will be hacking around woods - however, it will still need to handle some technical drops and maybe small jumps, not much steep climbing though. (All post-pregancy - don't worry!)
I'm about 7.5 stone (or was pre-pregancy!) so don't need a burly frame and I really like the 'flex' of steel.. so I was definitely thinking inbred (which I've had before and loved), I'm just not sure how it'll handle a 130mm fork (previously I've run 100-110mm forks on one and it was ace).
I know it technically can take up to 130mm - I just don't know if a 456 would be better suited to it as this is bang in the middle of the travel it's designed for.
So any experiences/thoughts?
Anyone running an inbred with 130s?
