Manitou is slowly updating their site. Unfortunate considering they have released them, but with no solid info. I just hope my slider is a good fork

I wanna see manitou come out with something (for around 400** that isn't mushy and nasty feeling. I would be more inclined to buy from them than anyone else as I like their reverse arch.
