1st ride on my Stumpjumper with the Manitou Tower Pro 29'er fork - a total surprise compared to the Fox 29'er fork I previously had on the bike.

The Manitou feels structurally bombproof (try riding up a steep hill with lockout on, you can feel every flexure movement in the fork chassis) and the damper has a level of grip and control I have not experienced in a fork for many years!

Why are more riders not turned onto Manitou?

Its the fork brand we choose to ignore in favour of Rockshox, Fox and even Marzocchi...

BRAND NEW, unused (still packaged) FORK SEALS (NOT A FORK!!) Fox SKF low-friction fork seals for 32mm series forks. Will fit any generation of Fox 32mm fork.

Sweet Protection, Thomson, NS Bikes - Eurobike 2014
Thompson is going like Hope? Losing focus on their core products, branching out into products that other manufacturing companies have dialled .ie. crank sets - both the Hope and Thompson look nothing special but overinflated prices for sure compared to crank leader Shimano Big fan of Thompson and Hope with their cored products on my bikes, in case you are wondering...
