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.

Sunday gravel grind, finished up with this pic...

I had a nice long gravel grind on Sunday and the end of my journey took me past a oil field biz. I saw this truck in the front row and couldn't resist taking a picture. I probably got 30-40 goatheads in my tires when I set up the shot, but I think it's worth it.Read More »

RST Capa and Spinner Grind 20

Hi all, Sorry if these have been answered already - did a little searching and didn't see it: 1) why is the Spinner Grind 20 not available (on eBay) to US residents? Moreover, anyone figure out a way to buy one anyway? 2) why in the world are the RST Capas on eBay sold without steerers? Moreove ... Read More »
