Strengths:    over kill for road use, adjustable preload

Weaknesses:    weight

Bottom Line:   
For city/bikepath and light off road use, this fork is overkill. I love the preload adjustment, tightened mine to the point where sag is minimal, but forks still take out a lot of the bumps, which is wonderful if you go for 50 mile + rides. I wouldn't expect to see this fork on a mountain bike, then again it looks like it belongs. I don't know the actual weight of this fork, but I also have a 7500fx which is a traditional cro-moly fork and that bike is much lighter - same frame, different fork. For what I bought this bike/fork for - city/bike path and light off road use (hence the name Metro!)this fork is exceptional.
