I just got a killer deal on a twice-ridden '05 Big Hit. It still has the stock Manitou Stance Kingpin fork, and from what I hear from alot of people, the fork seals blow out REALLY REALLY easily, and pretty much blow. It was still a good deal.
Heres my question - has anyone had experience with this fork, and if so, what are the chances that Answer would be willing to trade me or make a deal for a newer/better fork? Should I let my LBS handle it?
