Just installed Manitou Minute

I have to say that the ride is a lot more better than the OEM Rock Shox Judy. Overall, it was a good upgrade, especially for only $250.00 shipped. Plus, I mostly trail ride as well as some urban riding so I won't have to worry about it breaking on me due to big drops and jumps.

that fork is not made for jumps or drops, but good luck.

Hahaha I meant like since I only ride around the city and trails, I WON'T have to worry about going off huge jumps and drops since there really aren't that many in the city and trails... heh but yeah, that fork is awesome!
