Im looking for a DJ/Street fork, and saw the new Gold Series forks from Manitou and was wondering if anyone has got any riding time on one? Unfortunately it says that it has Fluid Flow Damping, but I wonder if they have gotten the kinks fixed on that. It also comes on the highest model Chase so I dont think it could be that bad? Any input/suggestions?

i dont really like them. my friend got one and it is'nt super adjustable. it's all about air baby and its only coil and oil
Adjustability isnt a huge issue. Does it feel good though, like is it plush?

It's way lighter than a Marzocchi DJ, talkin' pounds baby. I just put the 100mm one on my Banshee Morphine. The fork is made in USA and comes smooth, stiff and progressive out of the box. But because I have a 24" in the rear the front rides a little too high. I want to get the 80mm one now. So, 3 week old Manitou Gold Series II 100mm fork for sale. Never been more than a foot off the ground. $250. Oh yeah, spam alert.
