Strengths:    irons out small bumps for a pretty smooth ride. i bought a 2011 cell mxt-r off a guy who had done 42 road km,and was happy with the performance i got in everyday use.

Weaknesses:    i took my bike with only 42 road km on it to mt annon and with in an hour blow out the lockout side from some small drop offs ,very disappointed i feel i would have gotten better from kmart brand of shocks,because as i bought the bike from a friend the expense is all mine to fix them

Bottom Line:   
good for a smooth ride around the block ,very inadequate for anything resembling offroad use

Strengths:    Rides great for a budget fork. Lockout is a big plus for commuting. Adjustable!

Weaknesses:    Read the review

Bottom Line:   
This fork came with my Motobecane 600HT. It has performed very well considering the price I paid for the bike. I did have an issue with the lockout side of the fork stripping out completely (blow out) after a pretty fast decent turned into about a 3 foot drop. I had it setup correctly and the fork didn't even bottom out. Limped it back to my LBS and they fixed it for me. RockShox warrantied the part ;)! I use to have a rockshox recon on my old ironhorse mkIII comp and it was an awesome fork! Love Rockshox!

Rockshox Dart 2 brake post removal.

Hey guys, swapping a friend's bike to disc brakes and tried to remove the brake posts from his Dart (I believe) 2 fork. When we did, there was a hissing sound. It went away when the hole was plugged. I'm not sure what this could be. I don't think this is an air shock though. What's going on here? ... Read More »

Transition from Dart 2 to Rock Shox Sektor RL DPC 150

Riding a Raleigh "Mixte" once or twice on NW Carolina trails got me hooked and so, three years ago at the age of 63, I invested $750 in a Haro Flightline Comp. That Hardtail bike was getting a little too exciting on the downhills so I put together an Ebay Heckler frame, wheels and derailleurs from ... Read More »
