Strength:

super plush, look very good, second hand ones can be bought very cheap now, seals and wipers can be bought easily (although i havent tone so(yet)).... all adjustmens and air preload are very effective. its sensitive and works.

Weakness:

nothing apart from it took a while for me to understand what the compression adjustment did (at first it seemed like it did nothing)... i put it as far in the '+' direction as i could and it seems like the fork completly stops 70% of the way through the travel if i REALLY bottom out. so its more like a bottom out resistance lol.dont care tho, its awsome

its 2nd hand now i found out from its origional owner, the fork is now 8 years old and hasnt got a service once through every weekend DH riding (yes im being serious) and ... it still works. seals are still good, it keeps the air inside it (still) wtf? if you ask me. so yea its reliable, strong and overall a damn good fork. buy one, dont hesitate. oh yes, buy a shock pump and air adaptor with it too :)

Strength:

Very strong and powerfull though allowing excellent control in all circumstances.This forks works just fantastic, coupled with a DHX 5.0 coil on a quad suspension Marin quake 7.2 it s the best fork I ve owned..

Weakness:

NONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

Having in mind the main purpouse of the fork (FR+DH) it s really amusing how good this fork works in urban environement, for jumping on the stairs or just fooling around.When yo ride in ther city with that fork it feels a beet chopper but king of the road.Really effective in urban speeding...For the DH and FR all is said so just bravo Italia, it s really a BOMB(ER)

Strength:

super plush,super sensible, i love this fork, C cartridge tuneable by an adjusment aftermarket sleeve, change the oil at specified times, keep it clean and it will last forever.

Weakness:

if you use it in freeride it maybe too heavy to pedal uphill, but it will worth the muscle gain. sometimes it´s somewhat flexible.

this is an awesome fork, it has very simple internals, very user serviceable, although it´s cartridges are sealed, you can buy a low speed compression sleeve to slide over the compression cartridge and change the springs and choose on 2 lenghts 150mm or 170mm, bombproof fork can take any jump and because zoke controls the bottoming on oil level, it can never bottom out. if you´re looking to learn how forks work and a very sensitive fork, buy it, it is already proven, it has 6 years in the market and still there are a lot of new spares around.

confidence inspiring-Easy maintenance-design:all black with nice stickers (matches wll with my white frame-:))
easy to adjust .....in 6 months I never had a slightest problem with it even on the most demanding terrains...absorbs all...in 2 words it s a real "shHit eater"...and yeah ,I know it s not the newest model on the market but it works superbly ....I ll keep it on my bike for some time cause this is exactly the product I need ..almost zero maintenance and it works...everywhere

Weakness:

n/a so far

If you are looking for a RELIABLE-ALMOST UNBREAKABLE-ShHIT EATER -that requires low maintenance buy the bobmber,you won t be dissapointed

Drummer888   Weekend Warrior [Nov 29, 2009]
Strength:

Its strength and size

Weakness:

Weight

I weigh 90kg, and ride a large frame, These are by far the most silky smooth single crown forks ive ever ridden. Plush off jumps (truly soaks them up) and they will stand a beating.

Soulrider222   Weekend Warrior [May 05, 2009]
Strength:

The best damn fork available in 2005, period. This is clearly a winner in the DH/FR category. Dedicated 20mm thru-axle with two clamp down bolts per leg drop-out, think about it.....

Weakness:

Describe for me what weakness is defined as please, because this fork represents nothing of the such, near as I can tell for the last 4 years. If cost is a weakness of said product, then weak forks structurally should be cheap.

If you bought this fork, you were smart. If you want this fork, too bad. 2005 was a good year.

Tin   Downhiller [Oct 11, 2005]
Strength:

Lots of strength here. External Compression and rebound adjustment. Little lighter than the Triple crown 888RC. Buttery smooth and never bottom out on me.

Weakness:

None so far.

This for is very buttery. Such a big difference from the Fox and Rock Shox. Took a while to get it to dial in. This fork will put you in control. Not your bike taking control of you. Go through what ever u want too. Proven itself at Mammoth. Like I said, Total control.
