Strength:

Stiffness, plushness, adjustability and light weight.

Weakness:

None so far.

I got this on a closeout deal online and absolutely love the fork. I'd heard for years about lack of stiffness on SID forks, but these 2008+ models with 32mm stanchions are amazing. It feels at least as good as the Marathon XC, weighs a pound less, didn't cost much more (on a good deal), is more adjustable and doesn't take a funky, branded air adapter that doesn't actually fit! This gets a five for value at a sub-$400 price, probably moves to three or four is one pays near MSRP.

Similar Products Used: This bike: 2006 Marzocchi Marathon XC (felt great, but not reliable) Previous bikes: 2002 Marathon SL dual air (loved it, but shorter travel and sold with bike), 2004 MX Pro ETA (plush, sold with another bike), 1998 Rock Shox Judy TT (not bad at the time, but not very adjustable).

Strength:

My old Fox 100RLC had reached its used by date so have got used to riding a poor fork. The SID works very well. Feels nice and stiff in the steering and soaks up the rough stuff.

Weakness:

Poploc lever is good to use but is a hassle to fit on the bar and I think I would prefer to run the fork with the lock out on the cap.

Don't know the price yet so can't give a value rating but I would recomend on performance.
