Submitted by Whumpus a Weekend Warrior from Boise, ID

Date Reviewed: August 2, 2011

Strengths:    GREAT small bump sensitivity, good control on hard turns and corners, very wide travel adj., 85mm good for climbs and 130mm capable of technical decent

Weaknesses:    Leaky?! Broke seals on top, bottom, and rebound damper in 4 months, maybe from bottoming out so often. Coil might be too small for my weight?, plastic cap stripped easily

Bottom Line:   
I like this fork, a lot. Why it broke, I do not know. It took a while to get it in the shop and fixed new, but even when it is loose, 130mm travel feels great. Good low end product to upgrade bike, especially for riders who want to climb and descend. Maybe lockout compatible?
