Strengths:    Infinite adjustements, capacity, lockout.

Weaknesses:    Sh!tty little plastic lock-out knob.

Bottom Line:   
I bought my bike with the regular spring and elastomer system. Salesmonkey should have told me that it wouldn't work for a Clydesdale like me. I'm 230lbs and it was rated for a 150lb rider -- I didn't know at the time of purchase (oh well). I bottomed it with ease. Tried the "firm ride kit" (for up to 180lb riders -- again, I found this out after the fact.) I bottomed it less often, but still could do it. The Fatty Air Cartridge solved all my problems, and gave me the ability to set it up to take relatively big hits, and be a little harsh on the small stuff. It's absolute Nirvana.

When I first got it, it leaked air out in about a month. LBS replaced some o-rings (probably damaged on installation) and I've not even touched it in three years.

Date Reviewed: August 12, 1999

Strengths:    
Infinate adjustabilty


Weaknesses:    
getting right pressure is time consuming


Bottom Line:   
the fatty D cart. with the spring and MCU froze up in winter and was almost to stiff or to springy depending how you set it up . upgraded to the Fatty SL air cart and it's better than ever . it took a week or so to get the Air pressure set right but after that the damping and control is excellent . It is a bit expensive but if you ride in all year in SD and want SUSpension it works great
