    Just emailed them yesterday with the same question. They are on the boat now and quoted me a late Nov or early Dec availability date.

    Hey,

    I'm interested also. I wonder if they would provide graphics for anyone who wanted to paint their fork... Hmm. I ended up getting a white one, brand new, for 350 so I couldn't pass it up. Been thinking about painting it though.

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

    The tower expert legs are the same as the pro and readily availablie in black. I bought mine gently used from someone who purchased a set of the expert lowers and did the swap.

    I too would like to get some in black.

    I just submitted a request too and they were quick to respond. It looks like you can get them, here is the part #, and response. Probably can have it ordered through QBS.

    Hi Matt, we do offer the Tower Pro with tapered steerer, 15mm QR, 120mm, black.

    Here is the part #
    191-26027-C086 (Tower Pro 120 Blk NB 1.5T CM QR15)

    You can have your local or favorite bike shop contact our dealer sales team to get one on order for you.

    I was able to get my hands on the 120MM Tapered Tower Pro in Black with QR15 only because I have a contact at Hayes that was able to get one shipped directly to me. I think the black ones they have in stock are meant for OEM bikes that require that color. They are not meant to be sold to individual customers. I am not sure if they are going to widely release this color to everyone or not. Like Matt stated above, you may be able to get one ordered through your LBS that carries Manitou products.
