    What do you think about FluidFlow?

    Hello guys,
    I just wonder what do you think about the new Manitou damping technology, the FluidFlow. It is an advanced TPC+, isn't it? Just wonder coz I like the new Stance Static/Flow, and want to know more about their damping.
    If anyone has any experiences or whatever please write it.

    It' s not an advanced TPC+, its a cheaper damping then tpc and that's why they will be alot less expensive. It should be comparable to the marzocchi ssv damping or maybe slightly better. I hope the damping is not going to suffer from spiking like the ssv stuff.

    So you would choose a Sherman Jumper over the Stance Static?

    Well they are quite different, the static is heavier and has steel stanchions with rebound adjustments. The Jumper is lighter, more adjustable, you can adjust the compresion dampening to make it more progresive and you can also adjust the rebound. It all depends on your budget. For street and dj's, you won't see much of a difference. Anyways the jumper only has 3inches of travel so its pretty much dj/street specific.

    Fluidflow is Manitou's version of SSV... I guess we'll have to see if it has the same high-speed spiking problems as SSV.

    I had a FF on my old Black......never noticed it packing up at high speed, seemed smoother than SSV too.
