I don't get it. Does it matter what sticker you have on the inside of the leg or what?

The sticker I guess was their way of indicating which forks had the fix while they got the recall moving.

Wow, tire clearance? That's a really dumb problem. I have an old Manitou Magnum (cheap OEM fork on my Rockhopper) and the tire gets pretty close on a hard impact. There's not enough room for a fender bracket...had to remove it.

Thats cause the "unbreakable" marz had a problem, ive also heard of tons of 888's breaking. Manitou actually wants to tell the public about it, and not just try and cover it up. I dont ride a Manitou, but I do like them.

I plan on riding one next year. $500 for the Kingpin is a nice deal considering what it's 'supposedly' got inside.
I only say supposedly because i've read around and some people aren't sure if its the TPC+ in the Dorado. Either way i'm still planning on getting the fork early spring.

Manitou has been using TPC+ longer than Marz has been using HSCV, I doubt theyd change something. Reason its so cheap is because thats how the market is. People want no bob, SPV platform style suspension. Im guessing its the same as the TPC+ I rode in a black elite, and that thing was butter. Also tried one on an old slider.....those were selling off for $300 new earlier this year. I really doubt Manitou would cheat it.....people are always questioning good things. I dont know if the Dorado TPC+ is any different than that of the Sherman slider.......I dont believe so though. Reading is bad though, go for it outta your instinct, dont trust what people say online, or in real life....go by your own experience. By mine, TPC+ is kickass.
