Manitou?

Thanks for the opinions. I liked the TPC damping a lot on my older manitou forks so maybe the new stuff is worth revisiting. The nixon especially is looking like a good 'all mountain' (whatever the hell that means) fork; 160mm and 4.4lbs.

Manitou?

Anyone had some time on any of the 2008 manitou forks (nixon / travis). I know they've had a bad rep for a while now but has anyone got feedback on the recent ones as there has been virtually no press on them?

Weights changed on Marzocchi website?

Thanks Dave, you don't have the link for the weights page by any chance?

Yup, I usually like a steerer tube with my forks. As you say good to see them stepping up, though it means they aren't as close to the lightest forks in the 160mm range anymore.

Is it me or did the weights for the 55's on the Marz website used to be lower. I'm sure the 55 ATA was below 5lbs but is now listed at 2.343 gr/5.16 lbs. Are Marz finally stepping up and quoting accurate weights?

Marz 55 ETA or '08 36 Van?

I'm in the market for a new fork, anyone tried either of these yet?

cane creek?

Has anyone tried the cane creek wheels? I've heard a few good things about them.
