Manitou back on form?
This looks nice, very nice indeed.
34mm stanchions = good, plenty strong enough and light. I guess these will be pitched up against 55s / Pikes / Fox 36.
Crikey its taken a long time for Manitou to make a long travel single crown.
Also, is it just me thinking its a bit odd to go from open bath to cartridge for the expert/pro price jump, even though they keep the same feature set? I would have thought the lower cost fork would have lost low speed comp / bottom out, or similar.
I’d have preferred a 20mm, but 15mm or 20mm axle, ultimately not that big a deal.
I have a Manitou shock and its lush. Am now thinking I’d like a Mega with the Manitou fork and my existing shock…Posted 4 years agoScienceofficerMember
Never liked manitou rear shocks, always likeed manitou damping. They were always a binary sort of company, in that their forks were either shocking or pretty good, with little in between. I still have a set of manitou IT Nixons in my garage with TPC+ which is easily plusher and more controlled than RS motion control, except you can dial out their quite divey nature.Posted 4 years agoPyroMember
I’m just chucking the cash together for a set of Towers, they seem to be getting good reviews. The bigger offset should help bridge the gap between the 45-46mm RS and others and the 51mm G2 a bit, since it’s a Trek I’m building.
I think they went off the boil in the past few years because of the owners and importers – I remember talking to TF about servicing my old Radium shock and being told that they couldn’t get hold of spare parts. That would have put a few previous owners off!Posted 4 years ago
