    Manitou Minute 29er asolute plus rebuild kit

    Yes I did a search and downloaded the rebuild manual.

    What parts do I need to do a bushing and seal rebuild and where is a good source to buy them?

    BTW, I am under 140lbs and was thinking of going with 5wt oil.

    Thanks in advance!

    I would suggest starting this thread in the shock and suspension forum. Most of us here just want to drool over why 29ers and better, and which one to buy/is better.

    Just contact Manitou directly. You'll probably have to leave a message with the tech folks, but they'll call you back and send you what you need.

    I am trying to find an HD spring and having the same issues. Manitou wants to work through a local shop and all the ones here suck on special orders, they tend to go to the Ignore bin.

    Anyway a couple long threads that might help, or at least have some very capable and helpful people in them.

    I have to admit, I have not been in there for over 5 years. My last experience (and the elite, snobbish attitude) trying to order parts, left a bad taste. Seems if you don't unload your $6000 carbon whizbang from the Porsche, you are scum in their shop. I know they have new owners, maybe it has changed?

    Can't speak to that but I know those types of shops. If they aren't far from you I would give them a shot..... I am pretty sure all the Manitou stuff is available through a fairly widely used distributor. Just place the order and take names....that way you have someone on the hook if it starts to go bad.

    Checked their website, no Manitou, only Fox and Rockshox. I've been missing nothing by staying away.
