Strengths:    Study construction, good damping, and looks good.

Weaknesses:    No compression adjustment

Bottom Line:   
First of all, I am reviewing a 2001.

Good fork, I got mine far below original price (paid 300; msrp 1,500). I loved how underrated this fork is. Its far better than most of the top name forks, but doesn't get any credit. The fork never bottomed out, even on 8' drops to flat, and always had smooth rebound action, off drops, or reacting to small stutter bumps. Stiffness is phenomenal, torsionally, and under braking. Some nice, but small details: The rubber boots are great, they resist tearing and seal out dirt and grime nicely; The uppers are anodized and extremely scratch resistant; integrated stem is stiff, easy to adjust and doesn't pinch bars unevenly. The only possible downfall is the lack of a compression adjustment, which I personally didn't miss, because the damping was spot on for me and my riding.

Installing Sigma 1909 cadence module......

The installation manual (yeah, I read it) says the module and the sensor can be no more than 12 mm (about 1/2 in) apart. The problem is trying to attach my module to the bike frame - the shape of the bottom stay in the rear triangle is oval so the module wants to flop down in the way of the crank a ... Read More »

Sigma 2209

So, I rolled the dice on a Sigma 2209. I've been using the Runtastic app with my iPhone, but the battery life was about 2 1/2 hours with music and the accuracy isn't very good. I wanted a heart rate monitor also, but figure that would just kill the iPhone battery faster and my rides are only getting ... Read More »
