Bottom Line:   
compaed to an expensive fox its crap, but for its price and for an entry level fork it is good, and that is what it is, its heavy, if you are looking to upgrade your fork dont get this, if you just need a fork then get this

Submitted by Garfield16 a Cross Country Rider from San Antonio

Date Reviewed: December 31, 2008

Strengths:    It does work as advertised, which is as an beginner-level fork

Weaknesses:    heavy as all get-out, (between 5.5-6.5 lbs) which is surprising considering how skinny the stanchions are (only 25.4 mm diameter). You would expect a lower weight. Anyway the skinny stanchions make the fork seem fragile, and it gives a non-steering ride.

Bottom Line:   
This fork is EXTREMELY heavy for a 120 ml travel fork, but I have no major complaints other than that. It is adjustable, but don't expect to be able to adjust settings while riding on rough terrian, as it is a tough job.

I cut the ride short and dropped it off at the lbs. A day later I called and the tech said he was still scratching his head. That got me worried b ... Read More »
