Strengths:    Stiffness, plushness, adjustability and light weight.

Weaknesses:    None so far.

Bottom Line:   
I got this on a closeout deal online and absolutely love the fork. I'd heard for years about lack of stiffness on SID forks, but these 2008+ models with 32mm stanchions are amazing. It feels at least as good as the Marathon XC, weighs a pound less, didn't cost much more (on a good deal), is more adjustable and doesn't take a funky, branded air adapter that doesn't actually fit! This gets a five for value at a sub-$400 price, probably moves to three or four is one pays near MSRP.

Strengths:    My old Fox 100RLC had reached its used by date so have got used to riding a poor fork. The SID works very well. Feels nice and stiff in the steering and soaks up the rough stuff.

Weaknesses:    Poploc lever is good to use but is a hassle to fit on the bar and I think I would prefer to run the fork with the lock out on the cap.

Bottom Line:   
Don't know the price yet so can't give a value rating but I would recomend on performance.
