Strengths:    At first it was a very springy, nice to use beginner fork.

Weaknesses:    oil seals blow easily, preload adjuster screws up easy, and the crown is garbage, my fork broke off where the stanchions meet the crown this spring, if you don't believe me i have picture, ill email them to you.

Bottom Line:   
good beginner fork, good for smoothe landings, anything more is too stressful. not made for the park or any trick riding...dirt jumping maybe.

Strengths:    plush with no air, good for street with air. easy to adjust

Weaknesses:    heavy

Bottom Line:   
very good fork for the money. top out can be fixed by removing air and then repumping it. bottom out can be fixed by adding air or preload. absorbs street like crazy. aside from weight, by far worth my money. :)

Strengths:    hasn't broken yet. you can control the plushness.

Weaknesses:    tops out like crazy! when ever i bunny hop you can hear it half way around the world.

Bottom Line:   
the sanctions haven't been ripped out of the lowers...yet. so it gives me time to save up for a new fork when this one inevitably breaks.

Strengths:    feel nice, strong upper tubes,look quite nice, cheap according to pplz.

Weaknesses:    i snapped the crown when landing on rock off bigish air.
preload ajuster is always loose but theres nothing lock tight cant fix. preload ajust never ajusted jack@#!t.


Bottom Line:   
if you dont have much 2 spend on forks i highly recommend these fork, other wise buy rockys or somthing they are worth the extra cash, i know i wont go back to these forks as they are just plain dangerous because the crown is so weak, apart from that they where quite a nice feeling fork but dont push them or you will have to spend some cash to get a new pair forks, and as we all know mountain bikes are more expensive than there big brothers the motos, mountain bikes are to dam expensive.

Strengths:    Well this is my opinion :
I think its a nice fork to start riding with.
Its not to heavy.
You can make it as plushy as you want.
Good stuff for a cheap price.


Weaknesses:    No 20mm axel :(
The rebound sucks.
Beginner fork.
It snaps easy.
Not enough adjusting pb's.
Bad quality stickers.


Bottom Line:   
I think its a nice beginner fork for a small amount of cash :)
The quality is good enough for a beginner so if you're looking for a good starting fork that isnt to heavy and for a small budget => TAKE THIS ONE !!

Strengths:    they stop your wrists from snapping and they're chunky. thats it!

Weaknesses:    almost evrything. ok they dont cost much, but they really do suck. there is almost no adjustment and what is has hardly works, they top out AND bottom out off curbs, AND they weigh OVER 3KGS!!!!!

Bottom Line:   
these forks are ok for entry level riders/beginners who are into the urban/dirt/park scene and you cant expect anything amazing for the price, but once you move onto doubles, airing and learning tricks they're pretty much useless. save the time, money and effort and get some good forks from the start.
