Strength:

Lockout, Preload, Looks

Weakness:

You will not get the travel that it advertises. It doesnt soak up much at speed. When i got my bike it froze up completely and will not work. Luckily my LBS and Manitou give me a warranty.

This is a good entry level fork mostly made for looks. The lockout is nice but there seems to be only two settings, locked out and not. There is no in between with this fork. The preload adjust does not seem to do much except make the fork make a different sound when compressed. The fork looks great and is ok for riding around town but if you are going to actually ride some trails, YOU NEED A BETTER ONE.

Strength:

lockout....that's IT!

Weakness:

hmm... let me think, it doesn't suck up anything at speed, then when it does pick up a bump it blows right through the travels and bottoms out!

this fork is horrible don't buy it! if you're looking at a bike that comes with this fork budget for a fork upgrade quick-time.

Similar Products Used: cheap suntour that actually worked a lot better than this.
