Manitou via secondspincycles.com

The best fork ever to have the word Manitou on the legs.

#tbt to back before Manitou was Man-it-Blew.

Their late-90s/early-00s forks were hella light and hella cheap on Supergo.com, right when I was getting into riding/putting bikes together.

The accessibility, flimsiness, and failure rate of those Manitou Mars forks  contributed to my current, near-total disregard of weight as a meaningful metric in cycling purchases, and for this I am eternally grateful.
