    What'dya think a used MANITOU BLACK 80/100 is worth?

    I'm thinking of buying a used 2001 MANITOU BLACK 80/100 off someone. He's asking $175. Is it worth that much?
    Also he said it had a soft and medium spring upgrade, but that means squat to me.

    $175 is a nice price for a fork, but in your shoes I would try to stay away from Manitou forks in general. Bike shops send more manitou forks back to the factory than anything else.

    But like I said, you won't do much better for $175 on a new fork. How used is this one?

    You'll be glad you did if he hasn't sold it.
