I got this fork stock on my norco and so far have been really happy with it. The fact that theirs no brace does make alignment a little bit trickier, so take your time or find someone familiar with the setup. but for the performance the fork is great.

ABSOLUTELY PLEASED! - Jun 14, 2014

I got this fork in 2012 and put it on my 05 Specialized Big Hit. It is now on my Specialized Demo 8 Carbon. The Manitou Dorado is a perfect match! I couldnt be happier with it. The tunability is advanced but very easy at the same time. This fork has outperformed every fork ive owned from a Marzocchi Juniour T to a Rockshox Boxxer. I would definitely purchase again..if needed. So far its a beast! I would recommend this fork to anyone.

Worth the Money - Apr 30, 2014

Recently I was looking to replace my Boxxer and found that most of the used forks were still $750 or more. I was able to get this fork for a good deal and don't have to worry about the hassles that come with a used fork. Also, one benefit is that you get one free service with the purchase. When setting up the fork I went by the included setup guide and after a ride or two the setup seems perfect. The adjustment dials are high quality and a work of art. My only complaint is that the axle was a pain in the arse to get off the first time. After I was finally able to get it off, I made sure to grease it up before I put it in again. I wish that this had a self extracting axle as it can be a pain to get out and can see it being a problem on the side of the trail. While this fork is a little bit heavier than my previous Boxxer so far it has out performed it in every way. I wouldn't hesitate to buy this fork again.
