    Identifying Manitou Fork.

    Hey guys,

    I have had this bike since around 2013. I was looking to service the Manitou fork, but I am not exactly sure which year or model the bicycle is. Any chance you folks can enlighten me? It is greatly appreciated.Identifying Manitou Fork.-img_20170831_142022.jpgIdentifying Manitou Fork.-img_20170831_142059.jpgIdentifying Manitou Fork.-img_20170831_142040.jpgIdentifying Manitou Fork.-img_20170831_142110.jpg

    That is a Manitou.

    Just kidding. Looks to be a Manitou Black Super Air. Made in ~2002-2005. I don't see the Microlube ports so most likely it is a 2004 or 2005 model. It uses the MARS air system. Great fork but the 30mm stanchions with QR axle has some flex by todays standards.
    On MTBR, the reputation is infamous.

    Thanks Vespasianus,

    I had a hard time distinguishing it from the models, but now that I look at the pictures of the fork you identified they look almost identical.

    Thank you so much for your help!
