    Inner difference between 120mm and 140mm Manitou Minute Elite Absolute(?)

    Hi,

    Does anybody know, what's the inner difference between 120mm and 140mm modifications of Manitou Minute Elite Absolute?

    Is there a chance to increase travel from 120 to 140?
    (Using lathe etc., I mean)

    Thank you and I’m sorry for my English.

    Can't say for sure, but I bet it is the length of the push-rod (the rod that pushes the air piston) and the length of the rebound shaft. If you could get those for cheap, I bet you could go from 120 to 140mm of travel.

    Can't be done

    The stanchions are different lengths between the 120 and 140mm travel forks. In addition the comp rod, coil spring and air piston push rod are different between the two travels. The rebound shafts are actually the same though.
