Strengths: Price, I paid $325 for a used one here on MTBR in near new condition (knob lockout), then found an amazing deal on Speedgoat for a new one for $349, free shipping (remote lockout)!
Easy to adjust/dial in, easy and relatively cheap to get serviced, and they work.
Weaknesses: Seems like the lockout slowly stops working after a while. I locked out one of mine to get use to riding with a rigid fork, the fork still had a slight give to it (normal), but then it had a bit more, then a bit more...till eventually there was no lockout. Paid $20 for shipping to have the fork fixed (under warranty) and now it works fine.

...and a straight 1-1/8" steerer. Is there such a thing? I had ordered one from Bluesky, but it turned out to NOT be 120mm. It worked sooooo good at 100mm, though. My searches uncovered pages of speculation as to whether a particular year had adjustability to 120mm of travel. I believe th ... Read More »
Hey guys, I am new to the solo air forks and just purchased a new 2013 REBA RL solo air and took it out the other day for the first time. I am a solid 172 and set it up to the rockshox suggested psi to 110 and it just feels too stiff for me. I let a tiny bit out air out to 80 psi but bottomed out th ... Read More »
