I talked with a couple of the Manitou sponsored Canadian service centers about if they could order straight uppers and swap from a tapered to a straight upper. They quoted me about $300 usd for uppers and a full service. This would put a used fork and uppers at the price of a new fork, but these are really nice forks, you would have new seals and stanchions, and should be worth it if you have an old steel frame with a 34mm head tube.
