I sent my 130mm travel Manitou fork off to the guys a GarageWorks suspension to have it tuned, turns out the whole rebound dial assembly was broken, as the shaft wasnt attached to the gizmo that opens or closes the valve that makes the rebound faster or slower, it was at full slow. Anyway, I put a 100mm travel Marzochhi fork on that was on my Fuel and switched the rear to the 4 inch mode. I had to drop 30psi out of the RP3 to get the proper sag. It definately pedaled much firmer. Steering was much faster, and it seemed that I was in a more stretched out riding position, kinda like the cross country bikes of old. It climbed like a mountain goat on steroids!!! I always thought it climbed great before, but that little bit of front end wandering was gone, the thing tracked like a rollercoaster going up. Going down felt a little sketchy at first, but I got used to it, it was a little less forgiving with the steeper head angle but by no means a twitchy XC racer. Kinda nice to no that the ML is so versatile, kinda like two genres of bike in one.
