    Good luck. I have been looking for a new lower crown/steer tube assembly for mine, since its not long enough to put on any frames that I currently own. I haven't been able to find much for parts for the Sliders.

    Actually, this may help you out...

    Because the bolts on the Sliders were retarded soft and stripped easily. I had to use screw extractors on several of mine at one point, but Manitou sent me a new set of bolts for no charge. Unfortunately since the Hayes take over, getting parts is impossible.

    Yeah sure. I can mail them to you also I guess. They've been in my CamelBak since Sea Otter 06...I usually bring my CamelBak full of tools and stuff and leave it in the car at Northstar.

    I'll be at Northstar the 11th to the 15th.

    Yeah well Mr. T said you were a sissy and that he holds the fork onto the bike with one hand, while steering with the other.
