    Is the '04 Manitou Flick 90-130mm adjustable anywhere in that range? Or do you only get the two travel options?

    Thanks.

    The travel adjust mode is solely intended to lock the fork down for riding up hills and smooth trails. It is not intended to take hits, as the travel adjust will break. It is not infinately adjustable in that range, you either have 130mm of plush travel, or 90mm of locked down stiff travel.

    Hmm.... I was hoping to run it in the 90mm mode on my singlespeed.

    search for a thread i started a while back on this topic. the travel adjuster may break on some models if you get a big hit. however, the fix looks pretty easy.

    i ended up scrapping the flick idea and got a pike on closeout. i could not be happier. the pike can take plenty of abuse in the 95mm travel setting.

    good luck.
