    Nice find! Too bad I bought a Reba or I would have been all over this.

    Crap, can't resist, just ordered the Manitou Tower Pro. Almost a pound lighter than the Expert.

    Chain reaction sale is over... but Jenson has the 2011 for $329 and the spring tune kits for $12 bucks.... I got one and it's SWEEETTTTT!!!

    Search results for manitou tower | Jenson USA Online Bike Shop

    I actually LOST weight on the bike by getting the 20mm thru axle over my old reba QR model...

    Reba, with 160 Brake adaptor, bolts and such, Quick release and the Hope Pro 2 QR hub adaptors... 4.32lbs

    Tower Pro with 20mm axle, no brake adaptor needed, Hope Pro 2 20mm axle adaptor ..... 4.20lbs and that's BEFORE I cut 2+ inches off the steer tube


    Nice!!!!

    oh and it rides a BOAT load better than the reba

    I bought one of the Jenson forks last week to use on my 650b bike. Really really nice! Mine was 4.25 lbs, a half pound more than the 3.75 stated on the site.

    I think they weigh them without the oil in them.
    No moss...

    the 3.75 is for the Quick release version.. the 20mm axle unit is 4.19lbs which includes the axle.

    I bought the 20mm thru axle version from Jenson. Came in the mail yesterday. It looks nice. I'm going to put it on a hardtail trail bike I'll build up over the winter.

    well, the 15mm adaptor actually makes everything weigh more as the adaptors for the hubs are kinda a big chunk that has to slide inside the hub and hold it inside the bearings, where the bearings in most hubs use a 20mmID, so the adaptors to the 20mm is just a light spacer to hold the hub from moving side to side... MUCH less weight.. at least for my Hope Pro 2's anyway...
