IT ROCKS, I currently use salsa - shimano - dkg and fisbone boosters and this is as strong or stronger than the others. I like the rarity of it. If you want to improve braking performance get ANY booster! I have a friend ruuning the curve and odysey boosters and they are nice also, however the odysey is not very torsionally stiff at all so if you want to stiffen up the fork don't use it.

Strength:

Stiff, does it's job.

Weakness:

Mounting hardware not included. Mine appears to have been used.

The booster does its job well. After you make the trip to the hardware store that is. You'll need 25mm M5 bolts and a bunch of stainless steel washers to space the booster out from your v-brakes if you're using them.

Not so much a complaint, it'd be nice if they mentioned it though.

Mine also had some "memory gouges" where it appeared to have been mounted before. Not a problem as I needed to use the other (lower) set of mounting holes anyway. By the way, this booster will accept huge tires. I'm runnning a Geax 2.25 which is very tall, and there's still good mud clearance.

Oh well, the product works, I get to support the home team, and hey, they're not Shimano.

It cured most of the flex on the seatstays and braking has improved.
