Strengths:    Weight, plushness, look

Weaknesses:    price

Bottom Line:   
This is the sweetest fork i have ever ridden. You just hammer along on it and its pretty much locked out, just enough give not to be harsh, then you hit a bump and it just soaks it up. This fork soaks up anything under 3 inches without so much as a quiver in the handle bars. If you want a lock out don't buy this fork it doesn't have one and doesn't need it. Sure its expensive, but its worth it. My next bike WILL have this fork on it.

Strengths:    Look good (most important). That great Fox feel, stiff, good rebound adjustment.

Weaknesses:    Still bob even with the Inertia valve done up tight, but not a lot. Expensive.

Bottom Line:   
These felt really wierd at first, the worst shocks I've ever ridden on. But then I went over a kerb and away they went. As in previous review, they needed a short ride to break in, and now they don't feel so wooden.

The suppied cable guide look(ed) the business and was a nice touch. But it fell off on the second ride, so I'm back to cable ties anyway.

I ride with a friend with a set of Minutes, similar bike elsewhere, and neck to neck on the same climb he doesn't bob at all, but the Floats feel better hitting tree root sized bumps while going up.

They aren't a lock out though, but rather seem to be a set of stiff two inch or less forks until the inertia valve goes, and then they are five inch air forks.

And they just look good. Face it, that's what matters most.

Strengths:    Super Stiff, provides stable non-bobbing platform when clmbing and teraing up fast single track. Upgrade from F100x in the downhills

Weaknesses:    A bit heavy, and

Bottom Line:   
Lowered the travel to 100mm with the spacer to math the geometry of my bike. Took a ride to break in, but so much smoother than my F100x.

I can "prepare" for an obtsacle by compressing down unlike with the F100x. rails in the corners. Gives just enough travel ("Trail Tuned" or "TT") and just enough lock-out.

Theshold does not seem to be a sensitive as my other terralogic forks, but I still need to play with it. This is what the Reba or Miunute has strived to be, but this is such a well-bit, bomb proof product, Idont mind the $$$
