Strengths:    cheap.
decent composition.


Weaknesses:    leaked air after no hard use.
Durability.


Bottom Line:   
I've had my bike for about a year and a half and had no problems with the Sus-R. However, I noticed that it started to leak air and would hold for a few days but eventually would leak out over night. I do mostly street riding getting to and from work so I hadn't abused it very hard at all. It is an ok rear shock but its durability is something else. If you need a cheap shock this might work. Check out www.twowheelogic.com they have it for about $95. I'm actually purchasing another to replace the one that broke. Mostly because I paid $600 for the bike and I don't want to pay $300 for a rear shock.

Strengths:    light, plush

Weaknesses:    durability, customer service

Bottom Line:   
The shock performed flawlessly on my maiden ride in the store lot. On my second ride, the shock blew while circling my car in the park's parking lot. I didn't even get the chance to ride it on dirt. Customer service does not exist. Several phone calls by my bike shop only reached the answering machine. A week has passed and the bike is still in the shop waiting.

Strengths:    Light weight (370grams for the 190mm)Has held up to a lot of abuse. Very easy to tune. Very smooth

Weaknesses:    NONE SO FAR

Bottom Line:   
This is for the 2005 spinner SUS-R 190mm
It doesnt have a lot of features like propedal, svp or lockout but I have done nothing but abuse this poor thing and it keeps asking for more. I have done many 6+ foot drops and it still holds air. So I cant ask for much more. Great air shock
