    Manitou Minute 2.0 100mm or 130mm

    I got a Fisher Cake 2 DLX with the stock Manitou Black Super Air. I want the Minute 2.0. Should I get the 100mm or the 130mm version?

    Travel can be changed with the 3. That way if ya don't like the 130 length you run it in 100.

    Well the minute 3 obviously costs more. I will now consider the minute 3.0 as well. If I do end up getting the minute 2.0 however, what size would be the best? Im 185 pounds.

    The 1:00 can be adjusted at either 100 or 130 and is the least expensive of the three. The 1:00 is coil instead of air though so it's a little heavier. If you are set on the 2:00 I would think the 130 would be better just because the Cake has 5 inches of travel in the rear. Just seems like it would be a better match. I have the 2:00 130 and find it to be an awesome shock.

    You need the 130mm with the cake. It has a 70.5 degree headtube @ 130mm so 100mm would equal about 71.5 - 71.75, and that would suck.

    Thanks for the help. So I guess the Minute 3 would not actually be better anyho in this application since it is both 100 and 130 switchable. Obviuodly I wouldnt want a 71.5 tube angle, so no need for the Minute 3. Thanks again.
