Getting too old for this...
Remember all the pre-release hype from Manitou about how their new forks will be under 3 pounds, 2.9, etc.? Sounded good, their forks keep getting porkier every single year - last years Skareb Platinum was heading towards 3.5 pounds...well, checked the Manitou website today, and now it says 3.2 or 3.3 pounds (80mm or 100mm)...right back where they started with last years models...same damn thing. So what is the big deal with the "new" platform R-7? Seems like they saved zero weight. Is the Aeris Spinner the only option for a 3 pound fork? I have a SID, light, but doesn't hold air as well as my old Manitou's seem to. Whatupwitdat?
