I posted this on the shocks forum and wanted to see what the IronHorse experts (no pun) say. I decided to hold off getting the 05 MK 3 probably until 06.
I went to Supergo and saw an outrageously great price ($290 and no tax) for a Manitou Minute Fork. I have a Hollowpoint Expert 03 w/ a PUSHED Float AVA shock and th Fox Float 100 RL. My bike is dialed in to what I consider perfect. But, I also have a HT that I ride w/ 03 XC Duke fork. I didn't know what a great fork was until I rode the Fox. So, I wanted to upgrade the HT to a 100 mm fork. Well, the Minute One has 130 mm which would be awesome on my Hollowpoint. The 04 Team version actually has the Minute 3.
So, I was thinking about putting the Fox Float 100 on my HT and putting the Minute 1 on the FS ride. Here's the way I see it:
Only 100 mm
100-130 mm travel
Is SPV really worth it?
Small bump compliance not as good as Fox because of SPV?
Sorry for the long post, but everyone on this board has given me great advice in the past. Thanks in Advance.
