Image This manitou is perfect. I love this bike Image

How many bikes actually are better than this? Yes, manitou have some problems with the head tube (some manitous have broken in this point). But it is one of the most beautifull bicycles.

Yep that's nice.

Don't think the chain tensioner is quite doing the job it's meant to though, and the bar ends look to be at a very strange angle to me. Not sure how much leverage you'd get from them in that position - they seem to be pointing downwards...

But, guess you'd be needing pedals to get any leverage in any case so it's obviously not quite finished yet...

true....at all the mountain mayhems i have been to it was an offence to have bar ends on riser bars in our crew, punishable by having your bars hacksawed in half! :lol: and it did happen! even when the guy had 100 quids worth of easton monkey lites...harsh! :shock:

but that really is one heck of a nice looking bike though! i have never actually seen one in the flesh! 8) 8)
