Does anyone know how to remove the complete rear triangle off a manitou FS :?: :?: :?: seems like the pivot points are press fitted in :!:
had a word with dave yates at the weekend and he's willing to take on the challenge of building a new steel front end :) , could make a very different (& unique) Dave yates / manitou FS eh :?: , just toying with the idea at the moment, probably gonna be costly.

but I can dream for now....................

most of the replies i got on the marin frs , were that the pivots are press fitted , but can be removed , as long as they have the tools / experience it can be done

try a marin dealer near you , mine has all the tools needed , may be lucky

mathew the mechie in the local dealer said he keeps all the tools for " THE OLD CRAP ! " with a snigger mind you , he cant wait to see it :wink:

BETD would probably be able to help, they make bearings/bushing for most things. Probably won't be cheap though
