    WTB: Fork - 80-100mm travel with v-brake bosses

    Looking for something decent, xc oriented. Prefer air springs. Needs to be able to run at 80mm and would prefer the option of also running it at 100mm later.

    It's for Michelle. The SID on her bike died and I replaced it with the Manitou I had on my Stumpjumper. That's an elastomer sprung fork with really bad dampening and a harsh top out, and she doesn't like it.

    The Duke might be perfect. I'll call you later today.

    I have a 100 mm Xvert Manipoo color is black. Holds air for ever.
    I will sell it cheap.

    Sounds familiar

    If I thought that fork would reliably hold air, I'd use it. She'd never fogive me if I stuck something on her bike she had to add air to before/during each ride.

    Michelle's on a XTR equipped Turner Stinger. What kind of bike did you buy your wife? And isn't the Duke fork you're offering up off her bike, too?


    Michelle's planning to get a new bike in the next year. I need something that will work on her current bike now.

    Nah - worked fine for me. I did notice it start topping out a bit more harshly recently, but otherwise I liked it.

    Unfortunately, it is not pretty much useless. I cut the steerer to work on Michelle's bike, so now it's way too short to work on the stumpy.

    I might have a quad 5 off an 1995 Gt timberline or a 97 Judy SL (yellow) laying around.

    I may have the Bomber from my Racer X avail. after I sell the frameset. It's the air-sprung model, 80mm, lightweight version (Atom Bomb?).
