hey guys, I'm sure some of you have read about my fork, but just for my interest I would like your opinion on my choice.

I decided to go with the Manitou Black Platinum instead of one of the Rock Shox Psylos. I made my decision having ridden both and listening to a couple of friends complain about their Psylos. I love the Black Platinum and wouldn't have it any other way, but what do you guys think? Any opinion on my choice will be gladly accepted. I don't care which one you like better, I just want as many opinions as people want to give. Look forward to hearing from ya guys! Mikey42186

Holy S**t! RS Psylos are total crap! you were absolutely right. take care about that fork, its very nice
That was my impression. Thanx for your opinion. The Platinum is a really nice fork. It saved my butt the first day i had it. I rode rather fast off the steep end of a cattle guard bridge without realizing how hard it dropped off on the other end. I thought I'd be dead, but to my surprise the fork ate it up and landed me back on two wheels. It didn't even bottom out! Thats quality right there!

Don't look back for even a second. It's like the difference between Delta Burke and Nicole Kidman. You got Nicole.

I'm a very satisfied with my '02 Psylo SL, I swapped the original seals with Enduro Seals and it's still giving me a sweet ride. It was the primary fork on my VT but replaced it with a Black Super and installed the Psylo on my singlespeed.

I haven't had any problem with either of the forks but the Psylo gives me a smoother ride imho.
