I've known for a while that my old Manitous were on the way out - (stantions are fubar...) but as they're 1" ahead, there's not all that much choice for replacements! Having just had a brainwave though, the stantions unbolt from the crown, leaving me with the important bit to bolt to something new!
The forks are 1997 Pro-C (had em from new), & I'm almost certain anything of that age from the manitou lineup (SX,FS) would fit my crown. But would anything else? 28mm stantions, 135mm between the outside edge of each. & a design where the stantions bolt into the crown is kinda necessary too!
Any ideas / anyone willing to measure their forks?
