    Fork for a Burner!!

    I looking at buying a spanking new Burner frame with the Manitou swinger 3 way air shock spv from Supergo.I'm not sure what fork I should get to go with it,I'd planned to use a fox float rlc but am now thinking maybe a Manitou fork would balance it out better.Can anyone recommend a fork which might be worth having a look at?.

    Sorry I cant really help you. I have Duke SL on my bike and that doesn't seem to be very popular fork. But I am partial to the Manitou Minute though. Thanks what I would get if I had it all to do over again.

    We'll be anticipating DGC's response since it sounds like he's getting some time in on a SPV f&r 5spot setup.

    I've done a small amount of riding with a Float propedal/TalasR setup at 100 and 125. The Burner really handled well at 125, the adjustability of the fork is a great feature.

    manitou minute two

    I ordered my burner from wrenchscience.com a few weeks back. They suggested the manitou minute two. It is a nice light (3.4lb) 100mm fork. I haven't riden it yet because the frame is still being made but i trust the people at wrenchscience.com. they have talked me out of several other purchases so they seem genuine and not just out there to sell stuff. I am around 150lb and will be running a fox float with propedal.

    Pick your Poison, Fox Float 100, Manitou Black 100, Manitou Minute, Marzochi MX Comp, Pro, or SL. All will work well. Personally, if your butget allows, I would go the Fox or Minute. If you can only afford a $250-300 fork, Marzhochi MX. Personally, I have the Float 100.

    the marzocchi marathon s 105 would also work well.....i think superho also has it on sale for about $320.....the eta is nice for climbing

    www.greenfishsports.com has the MANITOU BLACK ELITE 80/100 for $199. Hard to beat if you're on a budget.

    It is stiff, fairly light, and super adjustable. Plus, it looks great. I have ridden one. They ride as well, if not better, then many of the super forks: Fox or Marzocchi. Plus, for $200. Great deal.
