Strengths:    A well made, strong fork. The dropouts are stainless steel so corrosion and paint damage caused by QR teeth is not an issue. The black paint has a deep lustre and is tough. This fork has multiple attachment points for racks and mudguards, making it a more attractive proposition than a lot of other rigid forks.

Weaknesses:    It's disc brake specific. The only hub guaranteed to fit perfectly is the Enabler hub, which while very good, is also on the expensive side. You can have any colour you like as long as it's black. The Enabler fork is on the heavy side.

Bottom Line:   
As long as the Front Enabler hub is used, a fat front wheel or a standard 29er wheel can be fitted. It provides a stout front end, which has improved handling on my Singular Swift. It might only be available in black, but this fork goes with every colour scheme. The Enabler fork might be regarded as overkill when not running a fat wheel the majority of the time, but I REGRET NOTHING!!
