    I bought a hardtail Merida Big Nine TFS XT bike a little while back, and it has a Machete as OE spec. Fabulous fork, meets all my needs, exceeded expectation. Very happy with it, just does everything right, - light enough, smooth, stiff, easy to set and forget. Had a Mk1 Manitou back in '91, and a Mk2. Mk3, FS Ti, and a Black over the years. The reverse arch is the only way to go, great sensible design. Happy to be a Manitou owner again after a couple of Marzocchi's and Rockshox.

    Science of Smooth and Value for the Money.

    Wayback 2006 I’ve seen this fork from my friends bike. As far i remember it was manitou minute or the R7. And I borrowed his bike for a couple of weeks then i ride it, and i was amazed by the rebound of his fork. And then his bike was my inspiration to do the same thing. Now im using a Machete Comp 29”. Where can i buy the Abs+ for the machete?

    Glad you have friends who share! A member of our Customer Care Team would like to help! Visit us at
