    Ive got a manitou black with handlebar lock out with 40 miles on it. When i unloaded my bike today to bring into the garage I notice the lockout isnt working. It still clicks in and clicks out but the fork never locks out. It worked today on the trail. I tried playing with the adjuster to increase decrease cable tension but nothing worked...how does this mechanism work? Anybody got a schematic? I figured it would be a simple detent inside the fork that rotates to allow flow or no flow in the compression direction...

    Would something like this be warrantied? Afterall the fork/bike is less then a week old. Im gonna swing it by the bike shop tomorrow after work if I cant get it figured out sooner.

    Any help is appreciated.

    I'd take it back to the shop rather than mess with it at this point. The bike's brand new and it's not really something you did, they should fix / adjust it for free

    Guess it justs gets anal after some use...they adjusted the cable (same thing I did but didnt work for me) and it seems to work fine now...while they were at it I told them a few other quirks and they took a link off the chain,fine tuned the derailers for me and lubed the chain...

    Nice to buy/build a bike from a local shop and get great service.
