Ok so i just regained conciousness..........they are swank-o-riffic! As far as your needs w/ the thru model I'd just get one if i were you. I am just not quite cool w/ the chrome crown on the 100 QR and was wondering bout my options, but those 120s are sweet.They are all coil right??

Speedgoats website has the 2008 Minute 29er fork, 100mm, listed as coil spring. However, I cant seem to find an Answer or a Manitou website so I dont know how accurate the info is.

Everybody has projects going on, whats the deal?

All the cool kids are doing it. Plus it's more reasonable for us poor folk. Didn't you have a Dad Cruiser Project?

It's funny you have a "project" yet i haven't seen your smiling face in the store yet.I'm here til 6 come hang out and be worthless............

If you're really nice he'll even open up the store for you on the days when they're closed and hang out. I can vouch for that. He even wrenches for free!

bullet proof, go anywhere, hardtail 29er. likely 2x9. some of the front runners are salsa, king, shimano XT and van dessel.

Jake, I was having the same thoughts, although, gasp, it was going to be a 26er. The 08 Santa Cruz Chameleon now comes with vertical dropouts and an EBB, eliminating the horizontals that I hated when I owned it. I said I would never buy another, but these new improvements got me thinking.

Ok, so are the Minute 29ers coil or what?

It's not a purely coil fork. I believe it's an air spring with some sort of coil preload. Pic of the guts:

I had a minute on one of my previous bikes, I really liked it. The 26er Minute 1 with the rapid travel wind down, no complaints at all with it
