Date Reviewed: July 17, 2007

Strengths:    Smooths out EVERYTHING, Takes drops well, Adjustments actually make a difference, looks the bizz, NOT TOO SOFT

Weaknesses:    not very adjustable, have to ride it for a little bit to loosen it up (just a minute on the trail, nothing serious)

Bottom Line:   
If you are on a budget of less than $500, buy this fork!! you will not be dissapointed. Once you get it broken in this is soo buttery smooth, it actually smooths the tar in the road. It doesn't dive in the corners or anything like that (i weigh about 160)

$250 for this? 5 chilis
I would like to be able to change compression... 4 chilis

Date Reviewed: February 13, 2007

Strengths:    responsive rebound adjustment. bottomless feel but still plush. looks sweet. and i think a little more responsive than an 8 inch travel fork. integrated over size bar mount.

Weaknesses:    can feel too plush at times. doesnt have the adjustabuility ov 200mm travel forks, only rebound and preload.

Bottom Line:   
works great around town fr/dh. if ur on a budget and want an indestructable super reliable fork, youv found it.but if your pockets are deep and you spend more time flyin then peddalin just get a marzocchi 888 or a fox 40.

The guy who posted before this review is an idiot (expecting to be able to put a fork worth at least four times his bike on a techteam). I feel obligated to post a good review just to negate his unfair slander.
