Yeah, when I look at the acera laden bikes with 3 front rings and suntour forks I am happy with it
Hey there, hadn't thought of that so I just measured distance from the arch to frame, it is 5 inches ( she said that) so a good inch from top outCame up nice mate.
Out of curiousity - How much clearance is there for the fork bridge on the lowers at bottom out? Hard to tell from the pic, but looks like it might get pretty close to the frame...
Good to hear, couldn't tell from the angle of the picture and it kept playing on my mind as it's not something you'd want to find out the hard way!
Got to say that with no breaking in time these forks actually feel pretty plush, Manitou have always ruled in my limited experience, except for my monsters , they are like a big wedge of butterBeauty!
Manitou has been making reverse arch forks for ages and they have it pretty dialed. For the given travel, the arch will be far from touching the downtube.
To be honest, I had forgotten what fun a hardtail really was, especially after having just riden the Julie, some say duallie but well you know.Ya think?
Yeah, I would of thought so as well, maybe my style has gotten better.According to most people on here you should have rattled to pieces by now on a hard tail.
What happened to the ride what you brought rule, no bike snobbery with real MTBers and good to see you getting some use out of it.Yeah, I would of thought so as well, maybe my style has gotten better.
The tracks I hit are probably all good for hardtails but I like overkill. I do think I will ride it a bit more though.
For a cheap carbon frame it really does feel nice
