Strengths:    Light, adjustable, rigid. Carbon crown/steerer is dreamy.

Weaknesses:    High maintenance (learn to wrench on it yourself and it's not too bad). Would never buy it full price, was looking at the Race version till I picked this up on sale.

Bottom Line:   
I saw it on special and had to bite. A decade ago I had the original fluorescent blue SID and it was nice to see things have only improved. I'm not as svelte as I used to be but this thing still keeps you floating and seems to never bottom. I like the rising rate of travel, the negative spring keeps small bump decent, surprisingly rigid. You don't notice it underneath you, it just does its job and keeps you going fast. Haven't bothered with the lock out. Overall, very impressed.

Strengths:    Very Light. Ajustable to suite your needs. Very smooth and stiff on the trails.

Weaknesses:    Expensive

Bottom Line:   
If you have the bucks then go for it but if you don't, go for the rock shox sid race, almost just as nice and only 50grams heavier.
