Anyone know what year these come from? Travel? Value?
They are NEW.
I believe they are from the mid to late 90's. The XC had a spring/elastomer combo with no rebound control, if I remember correctly. Not worth much to the average rider, but you could get lucky if you can find a collector looking for an era-appropriate fork.
I have a pair with stem and bars, bar ends etc up on my wall like a deer head
From memory they were 63/80mm travel, elastomer springs. I bought mine on a GT back in 1998 or 1999. I ran them for a couple years before upgrading to a pair of Pace RC36 Stealth Hollowform carbon fiber goodness.
I wouldn't think they hold much value, maybe a few bucks for someone who's looking at rebuilding something of that era - not sure if they came as OEM on anything.
Awful, entry level nonsense from the 90's....

The carbon is way more durable than most people.

Whatever someone is willing to pay for them, it probably wouldn't be much.
16 or 17 years old isn't new, they might be unused but they aren't new.
Yeah 97. I bought a bike that came with them, traded up before the bike even arrived but had a few rides before the Manitou FS Ti was available.
They were a low end fork with below average stiffness and bump absorbtion combined with no damping. They worked as well as you'd expect.
Resale value now is nothing. They weren't good enough then to be a desirable retro part now.
