2003 forks

I've been looking for(not to thoroughly) info about 2003 Manitou's and how their line up compares to RockShox. But Answer hasn't updated their site yet. So my reason for starting this thread was to see if anybody knows anything about 2003 line-ups and how well the forks perform(i.e Pilot-RockShox vs Axel-Manitou).

Well just comparing the Pilot to the Axel i can definately say that the axel feels 10x better than the pilot. Otherwise the SID's are better than the new Skareb's

I don't know about that.

I have a 2003 Skareb. Let me tell you it handles great and light as heck. .
