Strengths:    Very light and stiff, looks great on the bike (doesn't say Niner all over it).

Weaknesses:    Doesn't hold the expander all that securely.

Bottom Line:   
This fork rocks! Nearly as light as a Niner, but looks way better (IMO). Precise steering and fits the geometry of my bike perfectly. Have to tighten the headset every week or two, but I'll live with that I guess. I would buy it again.
