Strengths:    Works well on the trail.

Weaknesses:    Lockout sucks - didnt last long.

Bottom Line:   
After ive upgraded to motion control with remote, it is just fine. It swallows every roughness on the trail. Ive had it since 2010 and it still looks and work nicely.
Not much else to tell.

Strengths:    None

Weaknesses:    When i do vertical strength (perpendicular to the ground) , it looks like it is locked , just after i do litle more strength it moves .

Bottom Line:   
When i ride it in fast irregular trail, it doesen`t abosorves very well and passes all vibration to my arms , it only works like a suspension on roufh terrain, wich is bad because i do cross country/all moutain and not enduro/downhill. And no, the lock is not locked and yes, i`ve tried diferente air pressures and no it as no inteligent system FOX like . Maybe those fanatic cross country/marathons riders , like it this way...
