Strengths:    works very well. easy to set up.

Weaknesses:    none yet

Bottom Line:   
I hope this product lasts a long time because I am very happy with it.. Handles jumps, drops, rough terrain, berms very well. The Product was very easy to set up. Basically set the sag, and forget about it. I played with the other settings, but I am happy with the factory settings. It came stock on my RM Flatline Pro, and I think it was a good choice. I love simple products that are easy to use, and work very well like this one. I will give it a top rating because I have no complaints with it whatsoever. I just hope it lasts a long time.

I'm new to this and I am looking for someone to teach me how to recognize whether I actually need to negotiate for a 500# coil or or the 450# c ... Read More »
