Strength:

Study construction, good damping, and looks good.

Weakness:

No compression adjustment

First of all, I am reviewing a 2001.

Good fork, I got mine far below original price (paid 300; msrp 1,500). I loved how underrated this fork is. Its far better than most of the top name forks, but doesn't get any credit. The fork never bottomed out, even on 8' drops to flat, and always had smooth rebound action, off drops, or reacting to small stutter bumps. Stiffness is phenomenal, torsionally, and under braking. Some nice, but small details: The rubber boots are great, they resist tearing and seal out dirt and grime nicely; The uppers are anodized and extremely scratch resistant; integrated stem is stiff, easy to adjust and doesn't pinch bars unevenly. The only possible downfall is the lack of a compression adjustment, which I personally didn't miss, because the damping was spot on for me and my riding.

Strength:

very cool looking fork, massive, very sensitive,.....

Weakness:

its from RST

The Sigma is a cool Fork, unfortunatly everyone think its not good because its from RST.
But it is as good as a Shiver IMHO.
And its very cheap for what you get!
