    Bad...

    I would seriously have to go against of any of the Stance models. Problems that have occured: Snapped arches, broken stanchions, and blown seals. At the shop I work for, everyone is against the Stance (every model), not neccesarily Manitou's. So many broken models seen in our area. We just built up a Session 7 with the Flow model on it. Yes, it may look good. But, is soft for 140lb. people. Feels as bad as a MZ comp, lets say. Cosmetically, the black stanchions have been wearing back into silver in some circumstances.

    the only thing is that my lbs isnt a rock shox dealer(they only deal with manitou and marzocchi) so i would have to buy them somewhere else and then i would have a crap fork just sitting around. i kind wish i could get the pikes just becuase i have hers so many good things about them
