Nice review. I have the comp version of the 27.5+ Magnum fork upgraded to the higher end dorado air spring. I like it a lot, and it's definitely stiff and capable. In response to legbacon's question, in terms of stiffness I didn't notice a difference between this fork and a pike or MRP stage. If anything, it might be torsionally stiffer. The Fox 36 is a bit stiffer, but I'd put that fork in a different category than the others I mentioned. The Manitou works well in the cold too, better than most forks I've seen. I took mine out in -20C temps and the rebound needed to be adjusted, but I still got full travel no problem. Random question- what bottle cage is mounted to the seat tube of the stache? Looks like a nice solution.
