Strengths:    jaw droppingly light, seems strong, looks cool

Weaknesses:    I worry I have bent the dropout or disc mount with my efforts to bed in new 160mm hydraulics. Its now bodged with washers to bring things back in line. Has anyone else had any problems like this?

Bottom Line:   
Very impressed with lightness, never get the feeling they are going to brake on me, a bit put off by the mount though

Strengths:    LIGHT,SIMPLE

Weaknesses:    NO EXTERNAL COVERING TO PROTECT CARBON SCRATCHING

Bottom Line:   
IF GOING RIGID THEN THIS IS THE ONE TO TRY. VERY LIGHT, STEERS VERY PRECISE, LOOKS GREAT, DAMPENS VIBS AND BUMPS PRETTY WELL. NO FORK MAINTENENCE IS ALSO A BIG PLUS. FOR SHOCKERS WONDERING WHAT RIDING THIS RIGID IS LIKE IT'S SIMILIAR TO A SOLID LOCKED OUT FORK WITH ABOUT 10MM OF GIVE. WHEN HITTING A BUMP THE FORK HAS DESIGNED FORE-AFT MOVEMENT WHICH IS NOTICEABLE WHEN BRAKE ROCKING THE BIKE BACK AND FORTH. FOR SEASONED RIGID RIDERS THIS FORK WILL ROCK. FOR CONVERTS IT MAKES GOING RIGID AS LITTLE AS A GAMBLE OVER SUSPENSION AS POSSIBLE.05-06 HAS 440MM AXLE TO CROWN SO GEOMETRY WILL FIT A 80-100M SUSP FORK CORRECTION. ONLY CONCERN IS STRESS RISERS FROM SCRATCHING BUT 1.9-2.1 TIRE TUBES FIT RIGHT OVER LEGS TO MAKE NICE GUARDS. WORTH THE TRY.
