Strengths:    decent weight, PRICE, platform, rebound, plushness, overall ride-abilty, customer service

Weaknesses:    heavier than a reba or a fox

Bottom Line:   
This fork is just as good as anything that Fox or RockShox, etc is putting out. I've been riding it for 6 months and love it. Got it for $300 new on ebay which is HALF the price of a RS or Fox. the only penalty is a few more ounces. The fork weighed 3.6 lbs on my scale i think.

I've been riding for 15 years so i know what a good fork is. the Minute is plush, it works through the travel well, very tunable, nice linear feel and no flex that i can tell. (i had an R7 that was very flexy). its also predictable. I like the platform ABS + system. i ride it open mostly or turn it 1/2-3/4 closed for long climbs. and of course lock it out on the road.

The sad part is that manitou make s great product and has excellent customer service and they do like ZERO advertisign so most folks don't give them any credit. the forks are easy to work on too.

I have the 100 mm version.

Minute Pro 140mm basic questions

I am 180 lbs and got a 140 Minute Pro 2012, I have never had such a nice fork. I am super impressed and also wanted to thank those who praised this fork as when I researched forks I had not even known about it. Out of the box it worked great, literally bolted on and rode with what air was in it. How ... Read More »

Manitou Minute Pro 26 120mm 20mm-axle weight

I need a new XC fork but unfortunately I can not find my favorite Reba with 20mm thru axle anymore. It seems Manitou Minute Pro is really light on paper but few reviews mentioned that is noticeable heavier (about 300gr for thru axle version) than declared 1657gr. . However those reviews are quite ... Read More »
