    hey guys, could be a dumb question but i have an 05 dorado that needs to be rebuilt. Ive called "manitou" and it seems like they don't want anything to do with that fork in general.:disgust1: so where do i send it?

    thanks
    Chad

    If you can wait a month or 2 I'll have a guide on how to do it yourself if it is just a rebuild. Or take it to your LBS if they have a good mechanic on staff.

    i'm super stoked on how my rebuild turned out from garageworks. i have a manitou travis triple from 06, but after the rebuild the fork feels better than it did after it first broke in. i'm very happy with their work.

    manitou has finally realized what the rest of us have known for years...


    or


    the circle is complete, even manitou doesn't want anything to do with their own products
