Warranty on Manitou fork..how?

My month old stumpjumper's manitou fork has decided to no longer allow lockout. Who do i go to for warranty.........specialized or manitou? Also, does the dealer i bought it from deal with this or am i on my own? Thanks......

The bike shop you bought the bike from will do it all for you.

I don't drop. I just ride fireroads up, and back down the same or an occasional single track. I only lock it on the street or up fireroads.

While i'm at it, just so i don't have to post yet another thread......will my stumpjumper be fine with a tire that is 2.3" instead of the stock 2.00? I don't even know if that pertains to the width or height of the tire. Theres lots of clearance for width, but heigth has only about a 1/4" clearance. I wanna get some Panaracer Fire DH Pros at cambriabike.com. (is that place any good?)

Too late........i got some panaracers. I think they'll be fine for what i do, plus a friend has had them for more than a year and they still have plenty of tread. My stock rear specialized is almost worn down considerably after a month !

Roll X's are a soft compound tire designed for trail riding not roads or really hardpacked fire roads. If that's what you're intending get a set of semi-slicks. That or you could try a set of Specialized Hardrock'R 's (harder composition full knpbby) or Crossroads (similar but has a smooth raised center strip)
