    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

    Some people say its a good fork, others say its a complete piece of junk.

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

    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.

    Thats another reason I came to you guys because I read the reviews and half the guys say there a piece of s**t and the other half says there awesome??? Do you guys think they'd be good for what I do?

    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.
