    White Brother 140mm Loop 29er vs Manitou TOWER PRO 140MM 29er

    I am currently building up a 2012 Niner RIP and I want a 140mm fork on the front. Unfortunately I do not have the budget for a 34+ sanction fork. I narrowed it down to the Loop and the Tower. Does anyone have experience with both forks? I am specifically looking to see if anyone knows which fork is stiffer.

    This guy does an excellent review, kinda nerdy but super insightful. I think he has a review of the WB fork also.

    I think its safe to say the Manitou is probably stiffer. They have always had the stiffest 32mm forks on the market.

    Ha ha...glad you can be so certain on that!

    The WB has a great quick release and the magnetic damper really works. Mine has gotten better and better as it breaks in over the summer.
    whatever...

    You will probably find more info. on the Tower. That said there are a number of posts centered around finding the tuning sweet spot through different coil springs, air pressures and damper compression settings. Personally I didn't care for the fork one bit.
