    Need help finding out equivalent fork by feel?

    I have an older XC 29er, and I love it, but I been drinking the kool-aid with the slack angles, and built up a Ragley Marley.
    My XC bike has a Manitou Tower Pro with ABS @ 80mm travel, and it's light and feels amazing.
    My Marley has a Manitou Machete Comp @ 120mm and it's satisfactory, but it's not anything like my tower pro.

    What fork feels as good as my Tower pro that I can buy today

    Magnum, Reba, Pike, Fox 32/34 come to mind. You may also be able to put in an ABS+ damper in the fork you have, but I really don't know if that works for the Comp or only higher end Machete forks. I'd hit up the suspension subforum - lots of people there who know more than I ever will.
    :nono: :thumbsup:

    Thanks for that idea, I noticed that I could buy the ABS+ damper, that would be the best solution as far as price for me. I didn't know we had a suspension subforum so double thanks!

    I'd double check compaitibility, but yeah. ABS+ is pretty sweet! Dougal is the resident Manitou guy IIRC.
