What do u guys think of the 2005 Manitou Stance Flow? Would it be good on a stock Norco Wolverine? All that I know about them is that they have 110-150mm of travel. I'm happy to hear any advice about this...Thanks

Read some of the reviews of what other people think of the fork.

Avoid them, they tend to break.

Do you guys know any other cheap (around $300) fork with about 130mm of travel that would be good for freeride/DJ/DH nothing too hard or anything 6ft drop would be the biggest I'd go off.

i have one. it's not too bad. i replaced it with marz oil. it now feels a lot better. i bottom it out on alot of stuff. i weigh 140 but i ride hard. i don't really care/worry about mtb merchandise nearly as much as how good i am. maybe i'll get a ride kit, they are just 15 bucks.

ive got Manitou Stance Blunt's (150mm). i weigh 90ish (kg's) which is somewhere around 200pounds???. Anyway, i have yet to bottom out and ive done 4 foot drops landing nose heavy, so yeah, the 'stance' series cant be too dodgy.
