Manitou Announces All New Mattoc Fork
Considering every other review outlet had only positive things to say I think it is justified. Disclaimer: I love my Mezzer but it is not the greatest fork that has ever existed. I do prefer the Zeb

Custom Marino hardtail Enduro/DH frame$350 USD
Selling a monster custom hardtail. I can talk all day about how capable this bike is and how it has made me question what is and isn't possible on a hardtail. It's long, it's slack, it's low, and it's pink. Only selling because I decided I prefer 27.5" so I had Marino make me another bike with basically the same numbers, but on 27.5" wheels. Only real issue is the paint. It seems like there was some issue when they were applying the 2 layers of powder coat. The outer layer has cracked and flaked off in a few places due to flex, like the outer layer didn't properly adhere to the inner layer, and you can see it starting in a few places that hasn't flaked off yet. There is a spot on top tube just behind gusset where both layers have flaked off and the raw steel is visible. It is recommended to get the frame sandblasted and re-coated or painted to keep it from rusting too bad. But you could always just go punk rock with it and let it ride. Will probably be a few years before the rust really sets in. I have applied frame-saver oil to the open spot and inside of all of the tubing. Also has some heavy heel rub on non-drive side. Features/specs: Reynolds 725 Tubing Tapered 44/56 headtube Room for 2 full size big boy water bottles on downtube, as well as a gear strap mount on underside of top tube. Sliding Dropouts. 435-450mm stays. At 435mm it has enough tire clearance for most 2.4" tires. At full length it will fit up to a 2.8". I ran it at 440mm and found it to be well balanced. 160mm post mount rear brake tab ISCG 05 tabs, 73mm threaded BB shell 31.6mm seattube (34.9mm outer diameter) 148mm Boost spacing (axle included) Geometry Summary: 63d Heatube Angle (built around 160mm Rockshox Zeb) 74d Seattube Angle (not stupid steep like a lot of aggressive hardtails. At sag it rides like a fully with 76-77d) 75mm BB drop. Low! that good good low. Might want 165mm cranks for it. 490mm Reach 450mm Seattube length 663mm Stack height here is a link to my Bikecad drawing https://www.bikecad.ca/1648348157581 Asking $350 + Shipping.

Review: Versus All Mountain Trail Tires - Direct to Consumer & Straight to the Point
How do they compare to the trail/endurance casing/compund continental offerings that are about the same price and weight?
