Strength:

The Rc2x will handle anything you throw at it from drops to downhill and can take pure abuse! Loves to be ridden hard & fast on rocky downhill sections. The faster you ride with this fork and the harsher the terrian gets, the better it performs! Low maintenance - fit & forget.

Weakness:

Very heavy fork if intended use is for a do it all bike like mine, but the weight doesnt effect performance on downhill and freeride applications. Too many adjustments, are they really necessary? Takes ages to set up.

Great performing fork for downhill.

Strength:

Low ride hieght from last yeat.
Butter smooth even without new oil yet
Good in white
adjustments really work
air preload does wonders
burly and stiff as anything out there

Weakness:

My X knob fell off the first ride even though i checked it. but zocchi has one on its way

The best fork out there for any freerider or even downhiller. more nimble with the sc and just looks awesome. I wouldnt trade it for any fork out there
You NEED this fork.

Will update when fork is fully broken in and has new oil

great fork for freeriding just make sure you keep that compression adjuster in check.

Strength:

plush low and almost as stiff as a triple clamp

Weakness:

snaped off the compression knob and marzocchi is making me pay 180 bucks to get a new cartridge

sick fork exept for the low speed comp knob falling off but it still feels like gold when doing any sort of freeride

kenn   Downhiller [Apr 09, 2007]
Strength:

color, stickers, weight, hight, travle, adjustment, everything on this fork is dialed.

Weakness:

something wrong with mine*, but its not noticable when sitting on the bike so i dont care. the rebound nob on mine takes 2 fingers to turn and not much grip, i am going to grind it up with a file or something for more grip when i have some time. the air valve caps are either insanely loose or insanely tight. going to put some loctite aswell. these do not compromise the ride.

* the thing i said that is wrong with mine is weird and i've been told its the bushings. when im not siting on the bike and the wheel is on the ground, and i pull up on one grip and push on the other back and forth i can feel a little jolt. it feels like there is 1mm of play deep inside the fork. cant tell when your on the bike at all, i found this out when i was putting the fork on the bike otherwise i wouldn't have ever noticed. i have taken out the spring on the rebound side because im 140lbs and wanted this fork for soaking up everything small, because im tall enough to be able to soak up the big stuff with my body. the fact this fork was so cheap on the internet is a major bonus. i have used the vf2 and it was just fine but then i saw this for the same price and had to get it. i set the fork up to match my shock, a 4way air, and use the slow speed compression if theres lots of pedalling involved, it works well to eliminate bobbing. the X is for big hits and doing huge drops with the X closed i come 1 inch from bottoming all the times. this fork has a wide range of adjustments.
