Manitou Match 130mm coil forks

Postby kene » Sun Nov 18, 2012 05:40 am

Hello
I am looking to change my forks on my Orange Pure 7 from the stock Rock Shox Tora 130mm solo air to coil but limited to Manitou Match in 130mm category are these forks any good as not much reviews thanks

Link to spec so we don't all have to search? Probably a backwards step.....

I want to change as i prefere coil spring over air and Manitou are the only ones that does them in 130mm the other option is Rock Shox Sektors 140mm Dual Position coil but would like to stay with optimum fork length of 130mm the bike will take maximum of 140mm

You can swap out the spring for a u-turn coil and run them at 130? Thats what I did for my old bike - I have them going up for sale if you are intrersted. 2012 RL Model in Black - 15mm maxle - 140-110 uturn - soft spring. All work done from new by TF Tuned and so can be converted back to a 140-110 or 150-120 dual position.

As above, change the spring. I have a coil - might be interested in a swap.
