Strengths:    Great design

Weaknesses:    Poor manufacturing. Poor QC. Bad decision by Rockshox to allow this fork with defective lowers to go to market. This was a known defect in 2009. My fork was made in May of 2010 with the same defective lower casting. Do they not care? Two years with this defect?

Bottom Line:   
The defect in the lower casting means the wheel is not held perpendicular to the ground - the wheel is never parallel with the movement of the fork as the fork compresses and extends. Result: the spokes and rim are loaded in a way the wheel was never designed to see. Under heavy use this defective fork sharply moves the front end of the bike in very unexpected directions. Worse than poor handling - Dangerous!!

Apparently not all of Rockshox 2009 and 2010 models shared this defect - but it appears there are a lot of them still out there. Concerned? Place a truing-stand trued wheel in the fork. If the fork is OK the rim will be clearly centered between the lower legs.

Strengths:    SMOOTH!, light, looks

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
I only used this fork for 4 or 5 rides before scoring a new ride, but it was incredible while using it! Extremely smooth, I highly recommend this fork.

(also, I'm not sure why the MSRP is listed at over $1000, if you pay/paid that much you got ripped off!)
