    04 Manitou Minute 2/3 Set Up

    I have a Manitou Minute 3 fork and can not get it to sag!

    I have even run 70psi in the main and 50psi in the SPV and only get around 5mm sag (I weight 175lb)

    HELP!

    Has anyone here any experiance with this fork? - What do you weigh, and what set up do you find best?

    The fork feels great - I'm now running 90psi main, and 60psi SPV with 3 turns in on the SPV adjuster and damping set to 3/4 towards 'fast' BUT the lack of getting the fork to sag concerns me as I don't know if this is my optimum setting.

    Cheers!

    Don't worry. These forks don't sag the same way as a normal fork. It will take a push or bump to the fork to break free the spv valve. It won't sag as soon as you sit on the bike but will sag normally once the fork becomes active.
