That Tange Big Fork is a PITA to find especially in the length you need for the Experience. The Experience was designed to use that fork. If you wanted to go suspension then you need to get the Cirrus. If you look at the catalogue its slightly different (angles and lengths). Cheers!


Hmmm... Interesting... I did notice the slight difference in the catalog...

Well the manitou is low travel so I don't think it will be a huge difference...

But I will hold onto the original fork as it has the exact length of steer tube and I may very well end up swapping it back in place of the manitou

Thanks!!!

I also picked up some blue tri-align avid brakes today.. Sweeeeet! They should go well with the rest of the blue...

Still need some blue levers... Anybody? =)
