Well I went and did it today ordered my Transition trailer or Park
with Manipoo gold fork and transition OEM specc components single speed should be here early Feb waiting for me after holiday road trip:)

Im not normally a manipoo fan but was keen to try it since its fairly basic with no spv crap and reportardly the DJ crowd rate it, Im a RS Marz man normally, and the Argyle apealed but Im gonna try the manipoo anyways, Im begging for some punishment hence the DJ bike:D

Im really looking forward to this thing taking me jumps and manuals to the next level:eekster: whatever that is:p

Ordered up the frame in baby blue fork in white, happy with rest of comps as its for abuse not bling or trick, but thought this combo is different to anything in my stable at pres, man I can't wait ahh a steel frame again, I feel more like a kid every day just a 30ish + one:D

Why the manitou hatred??? From what I hear its a great fork. Wayyyyyy better than any of the marz dj boat anchors thats for sure.
No hatred dude thats why Im trying it I have had good reports from other DJs its the hot ticket:D

Ive not like SPV Manitous in past:confused: but always keep an open mind everyting gets improved over time:thumbsup:

I really didnt care for the argyle. just way too over hyped. it had the same adjustments as my stance...none ! also weighs the same as the gold labels. I might give one a shot if the gold label series II for 2007 isnt too expencive. I just didnt really like the feel as much as something like a goldlabel. just look around for a 2006 goldlabel.

The bottom of the barrel Argyle still has preload and rebound. As you move up, you can adjust air pressure, floodgate, compression, rebound, and lockout.

So this leads me to believe that you don't know what you're talking about, or that you've never ridden an Argyle.

The Gold Label is a terrifc fork though. The Argyle is also a strong performer though a little on the tall side.

According to Rock Shox's spec on their website, it's 5mm taller than a Dirt Jumper.
