    Black tower pro legit?

    Hey guys, I was looking at ordering a tower pro from Qbike.

    http://store.qbike.com/index.php/manitou-tower-pro-100-black.html

    Before I order, I was a little concerned that it came in black as I have not seen these ANYWHERE else on any other site. I definitely would prefer the black but do you guys think it's legit or is there a possibility otherwise?

    Also, anyone have experience ordering through qbike? I e-mailed them and got an answer back and the person seemed nice and professional but there's only 3 ratings total for the site.

    Thanks for any input.

    I have a black Tower pro in 140mm that I bought new. The black one only comes in a tapered steer tube.

    I have never ordered from qbike however. I got mine through a pro deal.

    Only in tapered? Hmmmm. The lady there emailed me that it was a 1 1/8 straight. Lol I guess I'm leaning towards not ordering it.

    The picture shows Tapered, white and 15mm axle.
    Call them and ask about it.
    I believe it was available oem in black.

    I've also had a black tapered Tower Pro for over a year.

    The trouble with having an open mind is that people will insist on trying to put things in it.

    E-mailed Manitou and they say it's legit, and covered fully under warranty as long as it has a valid ID#. The lady from Q bike was really nice as well and responded in a timely manner so everything looks good.
