To Manipoo's credit - At least they're doing something about it.
Probably the nicest thing I ever said about them

It would only happen with large tires. You could should be able to check it yourself if you are concerned. I'd try to remove the springs, and bottom the fork out, then see if you have adequate clearance between the crown and tire.

Sounds like an issue of some idiot putting too big a tire on his fork, crashing and then blaming Manitou.

The level of forks listed are not your entry level forks, they're pretty pricey pieces of equipment.

Probably a necessary CYA for Manitou.
