    We got a bike in recently with a new R7, and I adjusted the headset three times while building the bike before I realized the massive amounts of play were in the fork bushings. I can't believe Manitou is still in buisiness with the absolute **** they sell.

    I really wish they would go back to tcp internals. SPV blows. They really wanted to create a freeride fork that wouldn't bob when pedalling, but they messed up the compression, it is a very harsh ride. Switching to my 66, I did add weight, without any increase in stiffness, but the fork works. The compression control allows for setting up perfect compression for dh and xc. 3 clicks makes the change. The rebound stays the same as does the air preload. The fork won't blow up, it doesn't stiffen up randomly and won't snap under me. Perfect match compared to my old/new slider.
