Re: MANITOU SHERMAN SLIDER PLUS spv 170. opinions?

The fork was $100 so it was in my price point. I am surprised how heavy it is compared to the Bomber for on my other bike. I am happy with the purchase now to start ordering parts.

Re: MANITOU SHERMAN SLIDER PLUS spv 170. opinions?

Those are some pretty serious forks and I doubt anyone here has any experience w/ them. W/ almost 7 inches of travel, they might even be overkill for the street. If the fork/wheel combo doesn't change the bike's geometry, they should be ok and provide a plush ride. http://www.mtbr.com/product/older...
