Strengths:    Totally bullitproof fork.Steel stantions with black coating.Cool knobs that work.QR20 is convienent to take the fronnt wheel off without tools.Plush but won't bottom out!

Weaknesses:    None.It does what it's designed for perfectly.

Bottom Line:   
Does everything it's designed to do. It's plush,yet won't bottom out.The knobs look killer & they work great.ETA holds fork down about 3" for climbing steep hills.QR20 is great for quick tire changes or whatever.It's a little heavy but that's a good thing for a single crown freeride fork.Wade Simmons & Richey Schley rocked this fork alot when it came out.A great solid fork that eats up the gnar no problem.

Strengths:    very plush, agile, simple adjustments

Weaknesses:    a little heavy, i personally don't need the eta adjustment, but it's alright for going up the fireroads. the axle release is anoying.

Bottom Line:   
great for light freeride. it's survived many dh shuttles, its a little heavy, but its still a lot better than the 7 incher single crowns out there right now. it ramps up very nicely. bottoming hard only comes once in a blue moon, but it sits in it travel very well. no stiction. taking the wheel off is annoying, but i'm used to it. get this fork if you want an all around fork that wont break down in the middle of nowhere. it wont weight you down like a freeride fork.

I weigh about 190 lbs with gear.and will use the fork for light freeride use. My question is what is a good baseline oil height ... Read More »

Anyone use a Z150 FR for their trail bike?

I know they're supposed to be heavy. I have a chance at getting one dirt cheap. From what I know, the FR version has the steel steerer tube and weighs in at about 7lbs and the SL version has the aluminum steerer and weighs a little over 5lbs. Any feedback? A little too overkill? What's the Z15 ... Read More »

Z150 Vs. Z1 FR 2005? Z150 a big Zoke mistake?

Both are 150 mm….What are the differences between the two? Was the Z150 a big Zoke mistake (to heavy…)? After all - they don’t make them for 2005. Back round: Just got a S.C.
