    Did I just score a deal!? (Manitou Minute Pro 140mm tapered TA20mm)

    Got a Manitou Minute Pro 140mm Tapered 20mm thru axle for $232 from an eBay auction yesterday - brand new in factory box...

    I read pretty nice comments and reviews about new Manitou products (2011+) and how they were underrated etc......

    The price just seemed right considering its brand new/never used and got good reviews all around and I was shopping for a 140mm...

    What do you guys think, good deal on a decent fork?

    Its not a good at all. I would sell it to me for that price and buy something else.








    But really, thats a killer deal. Enjoy your top of the line fork at a budget price.

    That is a great deal. I was keeping an eye on that as well. Enjoy.
    On MTBR, the reputation is infamous.

    Great deal, as mentioned above. That is an excellent fork, regardless of price.

    I own that fork in straight tube, it rocks, they are very adjustable (a thread is here) if you want to fine tune, but I use mine out of the box so far, just getting to tweaking a bit. That 20mm axle is super solid. I dunno your needs but it sure is a great fork for my purposes. I paid over $400 you dork!

    If anyone is interested, there's another one listed, same seller:
    Manitou Minute PRO 140 Tapered 20mm Suspension Fork White MTB | eBay

    Let's see if one of you can get a better deal than me, I hope you will! Try below $232 :P

    That's a awesome deal on the fork, I have one and love it. It clears a 650b tire now, but I'm waiting for Manitou to release the new 650b versions to have some more mud clearance. I almost wish they would also release a newer 35-36mm stanchion fork already too.

    You may be in luck about a new Manitou with stronger stanchions/more travel:

    Manitou Teases Trail Suspension, Coming at Eurobike

    Rumors are, a 150-160+mm travel fork with bigger stanchions... we'll see...
