TPC+. I picked up my '06 Nixon TPC+ fork a little while ago, what a huge improvement over the '05 model. There is a ton a adjustment in either direction unlike the TPC model where there was too much rebound dampening even with it adjusted all the way fast. Also has nice aluminum knobs now with audible clicks.

Also picked up some Hutchinson Barracuda 2.3 MRC tires. These tires are very nice. High volume, good width and KNOBBY! Big corner lugs really allow this thing to rail turns. They actually roll good too; the only draw back I can tell is there directional stability. With the corner tread groove being as big as it is and riding on the crown of the tire when going strait the tire likes to flop to one side pretty easily, just takes some ride time to get use to.

:eekster: What the heck type riding condition are those tyres designed for?? weird . Always good to hear that companies are improving products from year to year, give us a report when you've had it for a month or 2.

Nice! Big tires are the sh!t. I had a Sherman with TPC+ and though it was pretty cool stuff. What is the travel range of that fork? Does it get full travel?

145mm, full travel.

I measured 518 A to C. I also took the spacers out of my '05 Nixon. When I first picked this one up I talked to Bobby at Manitou regarding the spacers I had to remove on my '05. He told me this one gets full travel without having to crack the fork open, since then I have confirmed it does get all of it's claimed 145mm of travel.
