    Picked this up last night in a frenzy of ill-timed late model year bargain hunting. Everything is set up right on it, except the cheesy fork (which bottoms out when I bunny hop it in my driveway), luckily I have a Jr T and a set of Diabolus bars and stem sitting around waiting for a good time. Prigressive shock, 150mm x 12mm rear hub with floater, SRS, oh yeah...

    Looks like a nice bike hope it serves you well, and glad to hear your replacing the fork.

    No question about it. Generally, I'd craiglist the Manitou, but it's such a heap that it might just join the carcass of my SGS in the dumpster: I wouldn't ride it in the dirt, and I almost don't want to be responsible for anyone else riding it either... The Jr T is sooooooo nice, there's no comparison. Unfortunately it won't be ready for my run down to Falls City next weekend, but my hardtail will make a good showing down there.
