Strengths:    145mm, 32mm stanctions, 20mm thru axle, SPVE, easy to set up and nice smooth action

Weaknesses:    top out noise, may need oil in SPVE as it is a brand new 2005 and it is Aug 08....

Bottom Line:   
A perfect stiff AM front end for the new BLUR LT2 with plenty of ajustment to fine tune. If you get one that's been in the box on the shelf for a couple years, you may need to upgrade to Enduro Fork Seals and add oil where needed.
Oh, and the price is unbeatable.

Strengths:    I wanted a fork that had 140 to 150mm travel for my heckler. I was going to buy a pike but this fit the price I wanted to pay. At 145mm this fork performs perfect on my 06' heckler. I could not be happier in the way it has performed so far.

Weaknesses:    It does not have a lock out or travel adjustment. Which originally I thought I wanted but if I had it now I would probably not use it.

Bottom Line:   
You can not go wrong with this fork if your an all mountain rider. I have been very pleased with it so far and would not change it with any other fork out there.

Nixon Super Intrinsic Service - TNC?

I read a couple of TNC's posts on using a syringe to pull the vacum on the Intrinsic cartridge. Can you give me a bit more detail of what parts you bought? I have a few sizes of syringes, did you use a plunger or a tube? I've not taken the fork apart yet, but have all of my others, SPV/TPV/FFD wi ... Read More »
