Manitou sent me these numbers today in regards to the Drake:
"Ride height is 490mm for the 80 and 510mm for the 100. Offset
is 47.6mm"
I was a bit surprised by the offset - I had seen 41.2 published online. I know a lot of 29er forks have switched to 45 and 46mm offset for 2009. Do you guys think 47.6 is correct?

Also, I'm considering this fork with 100mm travel for a Bandersnatch. I know Vassago suggest an 80mm travel but lots of folks report using a 100mm on Vassagos and liking the handling. If the fork does indeed have 47.6 offset and I go with the 100mm travel on a Bander, any guesses as to how it would handle?
