Strengths:    Rolls right over everything

Weaknesses:    Tricky to adjust.

Bottom Line:   
Wanted a longer travel fork for my old hardtail. I had to putz around with the preload and rebound to get the right settings. I also had to move the spacers around to lower my bars. Now I am very happy. Rolls right over tree roots and small logs.

RS recon silver R 2011 fork for '99 moab 2

is it worth it? the '99 RS judy c that came with it isn't really smoothing out anything on the downhill and being lightweight at 120# isn't helping... i'm seeing less than 63mm of travel. pretty sure the frame will take 100mm travel at the most as the fork back then had an option for 80mm and so giv ...
