    Manitou Black?

    I have the chance to purchase a Manitou Black 100mm for a really good price. I was wondering if it would make a decent street/jump fork. I want to do urban but some trails thrown in there as well. I know it wont be as good as a DJ1 or Z1, but will it do the job?
    Im just saying..

    Its a light-duty trail fork. It is used for 4x and slalom racing mostly for its weight, and those guys are really smooth. It won't last long for any urban or DJ abuse. I'd look around for a cheap Z1, especially a Doppio air version, which will be plenty light for the trails, but still hold up to abuse. Ebay has plenty for good prices.
