I just thought that Fox and Rock Shox were so much better that people chose them instead. You also don't see a lot of Manitou forks on new bikes either.
I have a 2006 130mm coil spring Minute and a 145mm Nixon coil. The minute is nice but the Nixon is my favorite. I'd say it's on par with the Fox Vanilla. I haven't used any RS products as of late. The last RS fork I rode was a mid range Duke. While it was ok, it was nowhere near as supple as the Nixon or Minute.frdfandc said:I've been riding a Manitou Minute 29er for the past year. Great fork IMO. I'd say on par with a RS Reba.
