I can't remember wanting to see a review on a fork so badly for a while. I'm not sure what it is about this fork that is singing to me, but I definitely want one. This is probably just nostalgia. Manitous were super-cool and shiny when I was a teenager. The polished prototypes for the Mezzer immediately grabbed my attention, and the shiny stickers on the production models held it. Though, I seem to recall a shiny Manitou being pushed aside by a blonde gal named Judy, who was later dumped for a Bomber... and so on. But I guess I still remember that shiny Manitou fondly.   I really hope that dual air pressure works out. It might be a great way to get a fork to feel the way you want it to feel. Seems like a more useful adjustment than tokens.  That travel adjust just looks awesome. It'd be nice to find out what a bike actually likes for travel, rather than what it came with. The fact that the fork came with the adjusters is pretty cool. If they put Lyriks on Doctahawks, you can put 180mm on an Alpine Trail and let us know how it went.  ...too bad about the fender  and the 2.8 though...
