Strengths:    Smooth action, with very little stiction here in the desert.
Light weight for its strength and travel.
Pretty rigid. Tracks well with little deflection through rock gardens.
I like the TPC+, it works well and there is no air pressure to mess with. It gives the user a choice of platform pedaling or none at all, out in the field with no tools or pump required.

Weaknesses:    I've had zero problems with this fork, however you need a special tool, to take off the spring side top cap.
The solution is to take the spring out of the bottom after removing the sliders.

Bottom Line:   
This review is for the 130mm TPC+ version.
I originally bought this fork because it was on closeout and was affordable, but I got one of those pleasant surprises in the mail.
this fork has been just as reliable and easy to use as some Fox Vanillas I've used.
This fork has given me no problems whatsoever, which is a big surprise, as my 04 Minute One was less than stellar, when it came to stiction and rebound knobs breaking off.
In fairness; Manitou mailed me new rebound assemblies in two working days for the Minute One.
The 06 Manitou Minute Two is a great Trailbike and All Mountain fork.
I really like the TPC+, as it allows a wide range of adjustment with no tools. It also allows for no platform at all, if thats what you need for the day.

The youngest would need a child seat and the oldest could do with just a back support. I saw picture of the Kona Ute with this setup, but really dont want a bike a ... Read More »

How big is a 2.5 minute gap?

In the Cat 3 class? I've done three races this month and placed 1, 2, and 3 respectively. The first race was tough, but I don't feel that the competition was that strong. The second race I got stuck behind a Marathon/Cat 3 bottleneck entering the trail and literally lost minutes just waiting for ... Read More »
