Yeah and FWIW almost all of the new air travel adjust forks (IT/Talas/2-step), have had *some* problems, which is a sign we are asking a lot of the technology.Ronnie said:In January 2004 I bought an Intense 5point5 which needed a long travel fork. I had always been a Fox fan but they had nothing appropriate so I got a Manitou Minute and have stuck with them since. The Minute was a bomb proof component that never gave a days trouble. I always felt the bike needed a slacker head angle and when the Nixon came out I decided to get a 2005 Platinum with IT. The Infinite Travel at the time was a brand new idea (On the fly travel control from the handlebar.) and unfortunately it had teething problems. I had to send mine back. The turn around was fast and friendly and I live on the East Coast. It appears that the IT was sorted in the 2006 model year and is still available this year. By the way, I got my frame with a Swinger 4-Way three years ago and it has never been touched, so I'd say there are not many issues with quality control. Instead of having the Swinger serviced I decided to replace it with an Evolver ISX-6. I haven't had a chance to ride it yet, due to the weather, but initial reviews from one or two people who have tried it are very promising.
It is my opinion that Manitou are always trying to innovate and improve their product.
The 06-07 Nixon Elite uses TPC+, 05 version TPC (but is cartridge swappable to "+" version)kapusta said:Which forks still use TPC+? I think it works great.
