I just ordered the minute 3 in 100mm. I' will also be putting it on a hard tail, and amd a little over 200. It shipped today, and I should get it, and hopefully on by the emd of the week. Once I get a chance to ride it, I'll let you know. I was grappling with the same decision, but heard lots of good things about the Manitou. Well, heard good about both, but I think I liked the Minute better. More to come!
