I recently acquired a new bike and it has a Manitou Sherman fork on it. It needs a front axle, but I am having difficulty figuring out what it uses and where I can find one.

I believe it needs a 20mm Hex-Lock non-boost through axle, but I'm not entirely sure if that is correct. All of those I see for sale online are running over $50, which is a bit more than I am willing to pay, although I'd be fine buying used if anyone has one for sale here in Lower Mainland, BC

I just want to make sure I am correct in thinking that it is a 20mm hex-lock axle I need.

I currently only have a picture of the front of the forks, I now realize that the picture I took of the dropouts is way too blurry to be of any help. I'll try to get a picture up later today when I get home.


According to this, the part number is 85-5070

Definitely a 20x110 Hex.

Thanks! There's still a few older shops in my area I'll call around to and see if they have any old ones lying around, plus there's a community repair shop that has dozens of bins full of random parts they've collected over the years

hammer, adjustable wrench, specifically designed chainring straightening tool... all of them work

Ditch the hammer unless you want to permanently f*ck up the finish on your chainring. If it's not rubbing on the guide I wouldn't worry too much about it.

Hey I just bought a brand new (2019) Transition Patrol and the rear Deluxe select+ leaks a bit of air nearly every ride (around 10 to 20 psi) and that is on top of the the 10 psi my pump takes. The shop told me this is normal but it seems like this is bullshit. or is it more likely that since ive gotten volume spacers put in that the negative spring is stealing my psi over the ride, as ive emptied and filled it on each ride (well the shop did) to add in more spacers. Also, it is last years model so could sitting on the shop floor for months have had any effect on the seals or something? Cheers.

Absolutely not normal. Sounds like a warranty to me. If the shop you bought it from won't do it, take it somewhere else with your proof of purchase.

It was bought as a Xmas gift and by the time I got around to putting it on the bike it was a month later and didn’t think they would warranty it, so I just fixed it
