    It's still a little early. They might be available, but not enough people have them yet to post reviews on the intraweb.

    sry no experince w/ a travis, but if it's anything like my sherman, it'll be sweet smooth for a few months till you have to change the oil, light weight, a little flexy, and nicely progressive dampening.

    a few of my friends felt the travis and said it was almost as plush as a 888. but i would rather a boxxer because the tuning range is way wider.

    i just dont like manitous damping and seal/bushings they are really sticky and the small bump performance is crap. the only fork that works nicely is the dorado cause the intenals and seals are in oil 24/7.

    How would you know the boxxer has a wider tuning range? Have you played with the damping? No.

    The new fork uses a different damping system whuch allows it to pick up better on small bumps betetr than past forks as well. And if it was as plush as an 888 wouldn't it have great smal lbump sensitivity? The 888's almost feel like they are melting into the travel.

    get the new 888rc2x i've only herd good things about them. It depends on what you want to do though if you are looking for something to hold up for the bigger drops and jumps but still feel nice on the trails get the 888 if you just want something for the trail riding and racing get the 40
