Manitou Minute Expert Forks

A great fork communicates everything that's happening between your tyre and the trail, without jarring loose any expensive dental work. In the past, though, you had to accept a weight penalty in order to gain rock-solid steering. The Minute is here to change all that with its ultra-stiff 32mm stanchions, MARS Air spring, and available Hex Lock thru-axle. Forget about noodly XC forks and heavy trail forks. It's time for a Minute.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Вилка агонь, плюшевая и надежная, уже год катаю на такой 2012 года. Учтите только что что он пружина-масло, воздух там для настройки жесткости, в компрессию он своей лепты не вносит :) 26 May 2013

I have a 2003 Gary Fisher Tassajara but I am finding that the rock shock forks are not up to rough cross country. The Minute forks have a good review. Are they a direct replacement and do you recommend them as a viable upgrade? If not, could you recommend an alternative for about the same price. I also want to fit 100mm or 130mm travel. What would you recommend ?

The Minute forks share the same steerer tube and wheel dropouts your current fork has. So it will be a no nonsense direct replacement for your current forks.

We would not recommend the 130mm models, these will be a lot taller than the originally specified fork and cause problems with the frames handling.

The 100mm would be the best option to go for, a little more travel but will not affect the bike. These will be a good upgrade compared to your current forks.
