Strength:

great for beginners

Weakness:

not as plush as i would like

this is a good enough shock for beginners, but is not very good if you are jumping high objects

Strength:

its pretty resistant when your just a beginner at jumping small things. Although I'm jumping things that are a lot over 1 meter, it serves the purpose well.

Weakness:

If you mess with the knobs to adjust the softness, it easily brake. One you get into more serious bikeing and jumps, you should get a new one, considering that the rst gila is for recreational riding.

It's overall good

Strength:

Does its job, for beginners that is.

Weakness:

Once you step into more challenging trails I would advise on an upgrade.

DO NOT buy this product seperately, only use this if it came with a bike, or if it was given to you free and you had nothing better to use. But now adays you shouldn't have to worry about getting this fork because of the date.

Strength:

Keeps the tyres on

Weakness:

Leaks oil, seems like there's no suspension in it at all, heavy,

You get what you pay for really. It does the job for what it's worth though, and all depends on how you ride the bike.

Strength:

As long as you clean these thoroughly and regularly they can absorb.

Weakness:

When dirty they seize, Also their reputation, Buy these and I can guarantee someone will laugh.

If you use your bike for work, Your stock forks are worth keeping, If you're well and truly into mountain biking, you've probably already got yourself some Marzocchi AM1's holding your front wheel on. But if you're in between and have the time to clean these once a week, There's no reason not to buy them for the price. Think about it, It's either these or some godawful pogo sticks from Zoom...

Many more forks, But as far as RST forks go these are the first.

Strength:

free, does not seem to leak gets a lot of work as i live in the middle of the blackforest handles it well

Weakness:

not suited for big jumps

if you have any play money buy somthing better if your just hammering thru the woods on rutted single tracks then these will suit you just fine . ignore the twits who treat 100 dollar shocks like they was boxxers or something

ride on
