Date Reviewed: April 8, 2001

Strengths:    Nil

Weaknesses:    Not enough travel for a light weight.

Bottom Line:   
Do not go out and buy these shox what ever you do. they are over priced, over rated and simply hopless. If considering purchasing a bike that comes equipped with these hopless forks i would advise you to upgrade.
