why does it matter what its called? as long as it works good thats fine with me. it could be called Peice of Sh1t Fork for all i care. and the stace kingpin is going to be like the 2003 sliders with tpc+, but 7 inches of travel and black stanchions. its also going to be much more affordable from what i hear.

Yeah, the Stance line is supposed to be cheaper than the Shermans, and have TPC instead of SPV I believe. Anybody seen that 6 or 7inch travel flick with the normal headtube.....thats gunna give the z-150 a run for its money.

JensonUSA already has them listed and is taking orders for them (not in stock yet though). Its $450, 170mm has TPC+ and weighs 7.2 lbs according to the listed specs. Its a coil fork with air preload.

yeah, since the firefly 20mm is only 5.4lbs, i bet that will be only like 6.6lbs, maybe 7...

oh wait, thats what a Z150 weighs....

I for one am happy the Stance line is coming out, I love TPC and have never really enjoyed the feel of SPV in a fork even thoughI've never ridden one properly setup for me, lol. I'll probably get a Kingpin for my V-10 and a Blunt or FLow or whtever other models there are for my Titan.

Manitou had something with the six inch TPC+ slider. Nice to see that they are taking that to the conclusion, a 7" model with TPC+, as well as cheaper single crowns with TPC+....

Tony your a post whore of course IMO is what your going to say.

the facts to back all this up are this

SPV: is made for ppl who want the best pedaling platform

TPC: is made for the best "feel"

Personnaly i ride a minute(spv) on my xc bike and am going to have(for now) a dorado on my dh bike(tpc)

I only said IMO cuz i'm a ***** and wanted to be non controntational by avoiding flames and a huge debate from those who prefer spv over tpc.

THe SPV is nice once in the travel and great for climbing/extended pedalling, but it doesn't have the feeling that the TPC+ does on the small stuff.
