    Check ebay. I picked up a 100mm Manitou Tower pro 20mm for under $400 and have been very happy with it.

    Great fork! cheap! This thing is lauded in the reviews here and I have to agree.

    check blueskycycling.

    they sell oem and have the best prices I've found. I've ordered a few things from them and they've had good customer service as well.

    I like it. I have had fox and rock shox forks as well and the Manitou pro is right up there with them performance wise imo. The 2012 has the quick release which is a nice feature. Mine has the 5 pinch bolts, which can be a little time consuming taking off the wheel, but I don't consider it a big deal since I don't remove the wheel often and can do it fairly quickly when I do. I picked mine up brand new for $380. I read some reviews and they were for the most part very positive. Some heavy riders have changed out the springs. I'm running the stock ones since I'm in the 150 lbs range. I feel it's a great bang for buck fork.

    In case others were looking here. I have a new 2010 Marz 44 Micro Ti 29 tapered that I would part with. Got it from a nice guy on these forums and haven't had the time or money to put it to use...bought a new chainsaw and told the wife I'd try to make up the money with some bike stuff It's still in the box, uncut, black adjustable 100-140, set at 120. Not in a rush to sell, but if I get my money back I'd take it.

    Amazon.com: Manitou Tower Pro Fork 29" 120mm White20mm: Sports & Outdoors

    not a huge fan of manipoo but a big fan of the 20mm thru axle. Why? Well
    because then you won't have to buy a 15mm hub if you already have a 20mm
    lying around and they are as common as gray and white cats. Good luck.

    Ah yes, that old gambit.

    Here is what to do: 1) Wait a few months. 2) Everyone will forget your promise. 3) Find something else to buy. 4) Promise to sell bike stuff. 5) See #1.

    I believe I've "sold" my Enduro three times over using the above method.
