I've tried the Float, Vanilla and now Minute 1:00. The Fox forks are good and stiff a plenty but I like the feel of the Manitou damping much better. The new 05 Fox are supposed to have improved damping though. I initially thought the Minute was a little harsh on the small stuff but after changing the oil and getting it properly lubed, it is sooo much better. I am now very pleased with the Minute and don't miss the Fox at all.herkman said:If you were to get a new Hammerhead which of the new front fox shocks would you put on it & why? This will be used mainly for XC & single track riding, no racing. Trying to decide between the Talas and F100x.
