Strengths:    the responce to bumps that this fork has is unreal!!stand over it and push down and the thing won't move.lift yourself of the ground with your bars and it moves a litle.hit the slightest bump and it sucks it up(if the fork is set up right).98% of those complaining about the ride of this fork DO NOT have it set correctly.it's all about the ride.also i ride this on a ds/dh bike( a giant AC team) so i beat it pretty good and it keeps asking for more.no problems yet.

Weaknesses:    set up is a can be time consuming.this is set very different from most forks but once your get used to it you will fall in love.stickers come off easy

Bottom Line:   
this is the best all around fork i have seen yet.dan is way ahead of the competition here.i would suggest calling all of the big name fork makers and ask them when they plan to come out with a single crown,6" travel,air fork with 42mm tubes,a 20mm axle and comes close to four pounds.if they don't drop the phone or just hang up,ask what they have that comes close and write it down.do the comparison yourself and see what a joke the competition is.

Strengths:    This fork is very plush. It has a downhill look.

Weaknesses:    This fork is the most dangerous fork you can buy. The stanchons twist and flex like you can't believe. I had to send it back to Hannebrink to rebuild after 6 months. I'm afraid to sell this fork to anyone I might get sued.

Bottom Line:   
This fork should be recalled or if there is a national bicycle safety commision should have the fork pulled off the market and Hannebrink severely fined. I've tried have Hannebrink do something about this hideous flex problem. They said it was my choice to use they're fork. Beware: it looks racy, but you'll go down and not know it was the fork that caused your injurys. Just hold the handle bars and move the tire side to side and watch the flex,scary.

Strengths:    I weigh 280 pounds. The fork is not set up for me and yet I have got on the podium the last 3 races. IF YOU MAINTAIN THE FORK WITH OIL IT NEEDS IT WONT STICK!!!! Hanebrink kicks ass. 6 inches of travel.

Weaknesses:    If you hate working on your bike, don't get it.

Bottom Line:   
Great fork. If you hate working on your bike don't get it. These forks love TLC. Keep it lubed and it will treat you good.

Strengths:    V-E-R-Y lightweight, evil look, great travel, relatively simple mechanism, 22mm thru-axle. Lighter than any other XC fork but very strong. And much more...

Weaknesses:    what?

Bottom Line:   
Probably the last fork i gonna buy, good product; well constructed and performant.

Bottom Line:   

I have the BRAND NEW Hanebrink cross country fork, and it is AWESOME! It weighs less than the double Triple crown SID, but it has more travel. It is the greatest fork ever. I rode the SID for a year and a half, BUt this new fork blows it away!
