Strengths:    Light, plush

Weaknesses:    A bit flexy

Bottom Line:   
Great fork. I believe it actually feels better than my 06 Reba race, which I was actually shocked by. the lockout works great, too. I weigh 160 lbs and the only time I notice any flex is in rock gardens, but needless to say, that's not really what this fork was designed for; it was deisgned to blast through singletrack as fast as possible, and for that use, I give it an A+. Probably the best fork I've ridden - feels much better (and its lighter) than comparable Fox forks. Plus lets face it, the carbon steerer and crown is just plain sexy. We will see how durability is, but I imagine it will be like all other forks, and will need to be serviced every season for best performance.

Strengths:    Light, Light, Light

Weaknesses:    A little sticky until they warm up.

Bottom Line:   
Light!!! I can't say it enough. You won't need lockout if you set it right, so it can sit under 3 lbs no problem. If you want it, PushLoc is the way to go. Machine your brake lever or shifter to accept it, and the perch will mount to nearly anything. Not a lot of cable, and a really easy lever to reach, no matter where you put it. Well designed fork all around, with nothing in excess. Not a DH fork, obviously, but it doesn't stutter on washboards, or bottom out on bad landings. Kinda expensive, but under 3 lbs?! It is gonna cost. I would love to send it to Push, might make it ride like the $1K fork it was designed to be. Not that there are flaws, just that delicate subtlety of added confidence that this fork does not come with, which Push seems to know how to add.
