I have the opportunity to buy a minimally used 02 Manomano size small for my wife or 14 yo, whom ever wants to ride with me more often. The price is low enough. I want to know about the suspension set up.
From the websites pics, it has a 4 bar look. Does it use bushings or bearings back there? Anyone have experience servicing/changing them?
It seems like a nice pedigree bike with Hayes mech disc, Zoke EXR 80 Air, Deore drivetrain.
Any comments or input are really appreciated.
if it's still time to answer you,
you can go for that deal.
a friend of mine ride a 02 manomano and is enjoying it.
a real full suspension kona bike with bearings at the rear.
no maintenace problems along those 3 last years.
i would however say that this bike has two weakness: it is relatively heavy, and the hayes mechanical discs are not very satisfying in intensive use.
