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!

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 »

Replacement for Rockshox Dart 2

Hey all. I don't come on here very often anymore. But every once in awhile I pop in. But I've got a question here. Last year I bought a bike from BD, a Windsor 4900. At the time, it was a very sufficient bike for my needs, but the past few months I've done some pretty extreme downhill riding at ... Read More »

Rockshox Dart 2 bust - Need replaced?

Hey all. Took my first downhill single track ride today and it was pretty rough. (Very much different from cruising along the fire trails) Went down the trail once, and crashed. Nothing hurt but my ego. Went down twice, crashed. Again, the ego was damaged. Along with a scraped arm, scraped le ... Read More »
