I just recently purchased a manitou minute 2 fork and needed info on setting it up.I played with the adjustments briefly and did not like the results. Im looking to get a plush ride out of it. as for riding style I hit jumps once in awhile and usually never hit the brakes on a downhill. conditions are very rocky. also I weigh about 180lbs.

How to "Devolve"

its a 2005 fork. is it involved to remove the spring?
For instructions on how to remove the SPV function (a.k.a. "Devolve") on your Minute 2, go to this thread:

Read through the entire thread -- there is quite a bit of good Minute info. contained in the various posts.

For additional information, visit this thread:

The photos posted by Ashwinearl in this thread clearly show the various parts of the rebound damper assembly, including the spring and cap that must be removed in order to "Devolve" the fork. I just revisited the thread myself, and the photos are showing as "currently unavailable" -- hopefully this is just a temporary situation, because they really show things quite well.

For excellent, detailed instructions on how to disassemble and reassembly your fork, visit this web site:

The instructions are for the Minute 1, but most of the steps apply to the Minute 2&3 as well (the right hand SPV leg is the same on all three Minute models for 2004 & 2005). Also, the Answer Products website contains detailed instructions for your specific fork. Go here and click on the Service Guides link.

I hope all of this helps. I rebuilt my 2004 Minute 3 for the first time this spring. I had never rebuilt a fork in my life, but it turned out to be pretty easy once I read the instructions carefully. Good luck! :thumbsup:
