I believe this is 2000 Manitou Mars C fork. One of the very lightest forks from back in the day at 1339g (which including a fitted star nut)! For 26" disc or V-brakes - now with Titanium V-brake bosses! 197mm steerer.

Quite a well respected fork of its era and plenty have survived well. Nice overall condition with a few marks here and there, as expected. I have to say I've never done a single maintenance task on these in the 6 or 7 years I've owned them, but they seem to slide down and back up freely, with the sound of some air moving, if that makes sense... I am literally hopeless with suspension though. Won't come as surprise a surprise to learn that I'm selling as I've gone to a rigid carbon fork, and these have only had the lightest of light uses on a handful of short road/gravel rides during all that time. However, I have no idea about air, oil etc, so usual disclaimers for old forks apply.

Now reduced to £50 collected - SOLD
