GEMINI DH   [Oct 23, 2012]
Strength:

Feels ok for heavy duties, hydraulics is simple but it does its job, works a lot and uses most of the travel, it flows perfectly, great stnachion covering, super-resistant lower finish, doesn't feel thin or flexy at all, very good QR pivot: stiff and fast to remove !

Weakness:

If I must complain about something I'd say it's "Heavy"... Which is not that much heavy actually...
35mm stanchions on 180mm single crowned FR fork may sound thin.
IS Motion Control is not super-good at stopping High speed compressions: the fork doesn't work very well on big rocky gardens or stairs

Lower price, better functionging and less weight than Marzocchi 66 RCV: it's the perfect choice for any entry level FR bike: you pay much less while getting not that much less than a pro fork: very resistent and reliable fork !

Strength:

This fork is one of the most fluid coil based forks I have ever used, it is plush and there is no harsh bottom out feel. The compression and rebound control works easily and effectively. The compression can easily be changed on the fly. This fork also has one of the largest travel adjusts I have used, 115 to 160. The $600 price tag was also appealing, other forks with the same specs don't come near that price and reviews for the more expensive forks do not seem to be any better.

Weakness:

The weight would be the only weakness, possibly lack of a lock out feature but if you need that feature, this is probably not the fork for you anyway.

The bottom line is that this fork is versatile:

Travel at 115 with compression up - urban street riding
Travel at 160 softened - freeride fork with lots of strength

As long as you are a fair sized rider, the extra weight this fork brings along will not impede your riding. I am about 210, and my bike weighs somewhere around 50lbs so its perfect for freeriding but not so good for urban. Overall for the price, you can make this fork work will any style of riding.
