    Strength:

    It's very adjustable and stiff.It has external rebound,preload and compression adjustments plus you can change the travel from 4",5" to 6" internally
    The fork seems very low maintenance.I'm not so sure where to o for warranty issues but I haven't had any yet.
    It has 32mm stanctions which give confidence.

    Weakness:

    The air adjustment valve is a very poor design .almost impossible to put in air without losing pressure when you take the pump adapter off. I have solved the problem by making my own adapter that scres on to the valve hole so that no pressure is lost and now it's fine.
    The travel is not the plushest of all but onsidering the cost of the fork it's damn good!!!

    This fork is a great value for your money. It's Ultra stiff and adjustable. Perfect for freeriding or lite downhilling.It takes big hits and drops pretty good. If you are a rider on a budget this is the fork for you!!!! if you can find one ofcourse,,

    Strength:

    Nothing really special about 'em. But they were $300 less than a set of USED Jr. Ts. I'm a po' college student and I need to buy books.

    Weakness:

    Old fasioned test, held the front wheel between my legs, and turned the handle bars, they twisted a little.

    I've only been riding DH for a while now, but these seem to work just fine for me. As I said, they were my 2nd choice to a set of Jr.Ts the marzocchis were a little better, but not good enough to blow $500 on a set that were not even new. These retail for nearly $600 or so i've been told, but I see them in mailorder ads in dirt rag/MBA for $200-350. It doesn't take a business major, ahem, to see the value here.

    Strength:

    Very stiff fork, tracks better than just about any other fork I've ridden.
    Total adjustability, infinite compression damping adjustment.
    General build quality is second to none.
    PRICE !!
    PRICE !!
    PRICE !!

    Weakness:

    Travel could be plusher, but for £250.00 it's more than plush enough.

    These forks are stiffer than any other fork I've ridden with the exception of Monster-Ts. The tracking is noticably better than Boxxers and they're a third of the price. Everbody who has ridden this bike has commented on how good the forks are. They are not the plushest fork on the market but a regular coat of GT85 keeps them almost as plush as the expensive stuff. If you are quite heavy (in my case 100kg) and you haven't got the thick end of £1000.00 to spend on some forks then these are the babies for you. The standard springs are more than adequate for us bigger chaps and they DO NOT flex one inch when cornering on rough terrain and will take a 6ft drop without bottoming. If you are in the market for a set of triple clamps then save yourself £500.00 and buy some of these, they're bomb proof.
    I would have like to have given them an overall rating of 4.5 only because the travel could be plusher but due to the selection system offered I've rounded it up to 5.
