I honestly love it.
The manitou forks started playing up about 6 months ago so I sent them back to CRC for inspection and the whole thing turned into a fiasco. Long story short, they said they couldn't be repaired, but they wouldn't reimburse me or replace them as it was an obsolete model. And they didn't have an equivalent fork ie boost, 100mm, capable of taking a 3" tyre. After much wrangling I eventually got a credit and bought some Reba forks. But I'd been without it for nearly 4 months. And I missed it massively.
Got out for a first ride on it since the rebuild on Saturday. Its so bloody good, particularly in the 650x3.0 guise. But I really like the versatility of wanging a set of more xc friendly 29er wheels in it for longer stints.
