Submitted by bigpedaler a Cross Country Rider from NE Indiana

Date Reviewed: May 28, 2009

Strengths:    sucks up everything I throw at it; reliable

Weaknesses:    stock spring too soft, change if you're a biggie (simple to do)

Bottom Line:   
With the right spring, you can't bottom it; with the stocker, you SURE WILL! Sturdy, take bumps well, adjustments are easy and noticeable (1/8-turn will affect the ride). 5.7" travel means you can tackle a LOT of stuff -- I took an 8" curb on a commute without pulling back on the bar, barely felt it.
