Strength:

Handles small bumps. Looks decent. Very inexpensive

Weakness:

Weak. Rubber seals come loose from tubes. Durability

Okay for small bumps but no "mtn bike fork". This fork came on my gt aggressor. Broke the 3rd time I rode a fairly aggressive trail. Not for use on anything other than smooth surfaces. Works great on smooth dirt trails with few tree roots, or paved paths. I had the misconception of it being a mtn bike fork when I got this bike as a Christmas gift a few years ago. Found out otherwise when I recently got into true mtn biking.

Strength:

works well for what its made for (rough ashvault, dirt roads, the occasion wander onto an offroad path...) (dont stretch it though) also a strength: this fork can be bought for around $30 if you look around (quite cheap)

Weakness:

companies seem to put this fork on mountain bike, as if thats what its made for, but in reality, its basically a very nice "city fork", but i wouldnt consider it a "off-road" fork

This fork is very nice for what it was made for, rough ashvault, dirt road, or a little bit of an offroad path, as i said above... and it DOES do a good job at those, but do not think your going to be off roading in this thing, because when you do, it wont necessarily be the worst experience ever, but it wont be the best (its quite uncomfortable, and stiff) i must point out that this fork has a bit shorter travel than what you want for trails, or off roading at all, BUT i have been using this fork for a year vigorously and have yet to bottom it out... if you want a very nice road fork, get this for around $30 it WILL be worth it, but please dont think this $30 fork will get you into the woods and out (comfortably)

Strength:

Can not bottom this thing out. I weigh 275 lbs and I push my bike to the limit. No matter what the big bump, this thing takes it. Softens the landings moderately. NO diving, ever.

Weakness:

Small bumps and rocks are felt. Bumps in succession can be brutal at times.

Wouldn't buy it for any more than $40. Would be a great addition to any hybrid bike that spends most of its time stomping the urban curbs not the dirt.
