Strengths:    Looked cool at the time

Weaknesses:    It doesn't work

Bottom Line:   
These forks are the biggest junk piles I have ever owned or ridden. They simply don't compress anymore so now I'm stuck with a high dollar rigid fork. Maintenance is double pain in the ass since the forks are very hard to work on and don't inmprove in performance once your done.

Bottom Line:   

Rock Shox Indy xc Worst shock ever made the material is so soft that just placing the front end on a carrier the material begins to crumble. I am at present using a mazzoci fork with much better results. I ride in rough terain at high temperatures and am only a part time rider although I ride at least evey second day.

Bottom Line:   

These forks came on a bike I purchased from a so called friend. The performance, structural stiffness, and quality are all very lacking when compared to the more popular forks. The triple bushing system adds a lot of stiction. No amount of lubing seems to eliminate it either. Definitly wouldn't recommend these unless your mad at somebody.

Bottom Line:   

My experience with these forks has not been good. The performance and stiffness is very lacking. The quality is poor making these forks an all around bad choice. I wish I would have stuck with the three main name brands and not wasted my money. All for now. three more words

Bottom Line:   

My buddy bought a pair of these, big mistake! They don't ride at all well, the build quality is very lacking, and the dependability sucks. They are now bent and that was from regular usage on a tame trail ride. I don't recommend these crap piles to anyone. Save your money!

Bottom Line:   

These are way to expensive for the average rider! You wont get the performance for the buck! They are good though just lower the price and I might consider buying them! I have nothing else to say but it has to be 50 words. California rules. Still need five more words!

Bottom Line:   

After a couple of months on the Dualcarb fork, I am amazed. It is the smoothest ride I've had in years. The
triple bushing system makes for the smooth, and the carbon-fiber leg assemblies are light, stiff, and
astetically pleasing.
Rumors abound of an all-air version for '98 (under 3 pounds).
Availability is good... if your local shop buys from Bicycle Technologies International.
Check it out!

2000 Zaskar X Fork Travel - 80 or 100mm?

I have rebuilt an old 2000 Zaskar X frame that originally came with an adjustable travel Rockshox Judy with a 80-100mm range. I used a new Rockshox SID and replaced the stock 100mm travel kit with an 80mm one figuring factory spec fork travel is like the Zaskar LE which its pretty much identical to ... Read More »

Frame ID. 80's Gary Fisher?

I picked up this frame off Craigslist. The straight fork and chainstay rear brake mount got my attention. After closer inspection, I am guessing Gary Fisher maybe. Looks like my 88 Montare. Serial number K8D0442. Anyone have an idea? Thanks.Read More »
