    Manitou Axel Elite - replacement suggestions

    I've decided it's time to ditch the Axel Elite's that came with my Cannondale F400. I'm riding rooty / rocky east coast singletrack most of the time and want something stiffer (like, a LOT stiffer), with greater travel. Any suggestions?

    What is your buget?

    It's like asking, "I need a new car, which one should I get?".

    A little more specific request will result in a more accurate answer on our part.

    I take your point about the pricing. Budget = $300

    Ill take that as 300 USD and you live in the US. In that case...look around the 200-300 dollar area http://www.pricepoint.com/thumb.htm?...price&ascend=1

    It's generalized because of what you're going to do with it, which I don't know.
