Fork Specs: 2009 Nixon w/ 160mm Intrinsic, 32mm still breaking it in but so far so sweet!

Thanks G4VNJ I have built up quite a few bikes and this one by far is meeting all my needs...livin in the SF bay area your bike has be able to handle technical downhhills and pedal up the 2+ mile climbs without tiring you out.

Awesome D.N.S yes I recommend this frame, please pm when you have your dream bike built up!

Must be the 32mm stanchions...manitou always seems to run one level thinner stanchions for a given amount of travel than everyone else. I'd love a report on stiffness.
no, it has to do with the fact that the exposed stanchion is much longer than my 180mm domain

...But the drop outs are up about an inch or more higher on the lowers than all other forks to accomodate for the reverse arch and prevent it from contacting the downtube...

More exposed stanchion, yet typically lower a-c's...

NICE looking bike! The red ano rims and hubs really contrast well with the frame. Love that color combo. I've always thought the latest Diamondback full sus frames have a clean, solid look too. Interested to hear your ride report.
