    Manitou Tower Pro & a 2012 Trek Marlin

    I got a Marlin a few months back and want to get a new set of forks. I am have settled on the Manitou Tower Pro but was wondering if it would work with my current stock rim? How much work would it take if it isn't just a fork swap? Thanks for any help you can give me.

    It will if you get 9mm dropout ends on the fork. The other option is 15mm thru for a stiffer front and more desirable for future builds. You would need to get a new front wheel for that unless there are different end caps available for your hub from Trek. Call tech support and see.
    If no caps are out there a new lighter wheel like an ArchEx would be a good upgrade for more weight off the front.
