Strength:

Feels like Marzocchi of old, smooth plush travel.

Weakness:

Lack of fine tuning adjustments

I have ridden many forks and I Love this fork. This fork has been great so far. I love that marzocchi went back to the dual bath damping. For the money you can't go wrong.

Binford   Weekend Warrior [Dec 12, 2010]
Strength:

Smooth travell, open bath, good spring rate

Weakness:

Check oil level befor riding, mine was too high, would have caused it to leak.

Rebound control has little effect, 2010 888RCV has way more range

Nice basic coil fork just like the old Marzocchi(dual coil, open bath)

sks   Weekend Warrior [Oct 26, 2010]
Strength:

price, durable, reliable, best bang for the bucks, thru axle

Weakness:

weight @ 6.2 lbs, no lockout on this model,

didn't want to pay $500 plus for Fox. wanted something affordable for my simple bike. the company been around for many years, had a bad year in 08 and 09 due to subcontract to china. this is 2010 model suppose to have corrected issues and bring back ownership. took it a few times on small trail around the house, so far so good..no leaks, dont even feel small bumps and eats up moderate jumps. will take to intermediate trail at chino hill park and test soon.
