    I have the minute elite absolute in 120 and the same fork in 140mm with IT travel adjust. I like em both alot.
    Don't know about the tpc model though as I have never had one. Most of the 2008-2009 manitou stuff is pretty good though.

    I have a 2008 120mm tpc elite with a 20mm. So far, love it. Plush, pretty stiff (I'm a big guy) great fork for the value.

    TPC is good just make sure to grease the seals with seal lube to reduce stickshion.

    Really liking mine, however I bought it about 3 weeks ago and it seems the seals are leaking.

    Does anyone ever hear a clanking noise in a 140mm Minute Elite when the fork tops out from a compression? Anyone know what that might be?

    Manitou recommends 50psi minimum sometimes you need to bump it up a couple more psi. If you run less air or none it tops out making a clacking noise.

    You'd gain a more complex damper, but not necessarily better one... I swear by my TPC forks. Easy to custom tune, reliable...

    I agree with mattsavage, TPC is simple and it works great. The Absolute damper gets you a platform adjustment rather than a compression adjustment, I'd take compression adjust over a platform every time you gave me the option.

    Right side is the only side with oil most likely your seeing the Prep M lube that Manitou uses on dampers and seals and not oil, nothing to worry about.
