gonna get a new fork for my 96er, i know i can get a good deal on a fox F29, but im keen to try the minute in 80 or 100mm with the 48mm offset, or do i just get the fox, or even wait for the new reba?

does anyone rate the manitou?

I have owned all three, and preferred the Minute. Offset on my 80mm QR fork is ~41mm, IIRC. The Minute and Fox both felt stiffer than the Reba (couldn't tell between the 2 of them) to me, and once the oil levels were corrected, the Minute felt better than the Fox. I haven't tied a 20mm Minute or longer travel version. I wonder if the black version will be available soon..

Just my 2cents...and a side note. manitou is coming out with a coil 29er fork called the "Drake" soon. I don't know too much about it yet, but put manitou drake in your computer search for info. You can also read my thread, "due out soon-manitou drake fork".
