The fork showed up busted right out the gate. Bike is still at the shop, waiting for some Manitou specialist to email back and get this situation sorted out. It's been 3 days at this point. Hopefully it gets fixed soon to make this ordeal worth it in the end. I'll change the review if and when it gets fixed and installed. sad face.gif
Works as intended. Good product.
I've been completely upgrading a recently purchased 26" big box Mongoose Durham - only a wheelset left to install. The Markhor (on sale via the Hayes Website) was a perfect purchase, install, and consequent ride. The ride is markedly smoother and with the bonus of an unexpectedly slight increase in wheelbase, the steering is more slack on this little Mongoose. All of this makes my bike much more stable and fun to ride.
Alas, a few complaints: no included user manual, no included installation guide, and necessary Markhor pdf downloads woefully out-of-date and/or simply unavailable. Online discussions also point out this frustrating lack of corporate support. Nonetheless, I am pleased with the Markhor despite the above disappointments.
This fork is solid for the type of riding I do.
I love this fork, no complaints but I have a question? I extended the fork from 100mm to 120mm travel, although fork is extended out the extra 20mm, I don't seem to be getting the extra 20mm by way of travel in the fork? Could you please help me?
