Strengths:    plush, adjustments, Etc.

Weaknesses:    could be lighter?

Bottom Line:   
Great shock for downhill and freeride. Love the rebound adjustment; all the way slow makes it not rebound and makes it stiff for climbing and 5 clicks slow makes it perfect for hucking stairs, drops, jumps, etc. when i buy the bike from my friend i might get a titanium spring or even Obtainium from obtanium performance products. it shoul match the BoXXer Race's performance. the air adjusment is also great. if you have one pump, then it should be used for the rough stuff. stiffen it up with 5 pumps and its a freeride machine!! very durable and stays well put. not great for XC, but amazing for AM, FR, and DH. maybe even some 4x and DJ!!!!

Date Reviewed: October 11, 2009

Strengths:    Plush feeling, good tunability, its not very expensive.

Weaknesses:    Low quality Manitou springs- ive had two and both of them were bent a bit(not straight)

Bottom Line:   
I would buy it again. It is great shock, but you have to choose correct spring rate. A friend of mine rode it with too light spring a the damper got broken and the oil leaked out. I repaired it and now cant say anything wrong about it.
