    Strengths:    Light, sexy. It is carbon fiber. Mine came with both disc and canti/v-brake mounts. Legs are long and will accomodate a 29" wheel (with disc brakes only) or the 26" with V-brakes.

    Weaknesses:    None so far. I am a Clydesdale class rider and it is holding up fine.

    Bottom Line:   
    If you are thinking of a Pace fork, then you may want to consider one of these instead as it is just as sexy as the Pace, but a lot friendlier to your wallet.

    Strengths:    Inexpensive, well made, lightweight, suspension like ride without the weight or cost.

    Weaknesses:    Unknown customer service

    Bottom Line:   
    I did as much research as I could on this fork, and for all intents and purposes, the Fetish fork is identical to the White Brothers, but at less than half the price. I'm 200#, ride fairly hard, mostly slow speed technical, plenty of opportunities to test the fork, no problems yet. A carbon fork is a great way to maintain the hardtail handling while taking some of the jolt outta the ride. Carbon is funny, it "boings" when you hit stuff, so I guess it's the flex that allows the fork to soak up the bumps and vibrations. Between the Fetish carbon fork and
