Strength:

Super light weight, incredibly lateral stiffness compared to duo-tube counter parts, funny looks from fellow riders

Weakness:

Mentally tough to understand

The PBR was a replacement for a blown Carbon Lefty 110MM SL. Although listed at 100MM, didn't really noticed the lack of 10mm difference. The internals soaked up most anything that was dished. You do have to ensure the air pressure is dialed in properly to get the best feedback from this fork. Definitely invest in a shock pump...do not use your normal tire pump. The total weight is the biggest advantage of this fork. Getting rid of one of the two tubes saves quite a bit. What is strange is when you look down and you see one fork. I think the few times I did that on the road when I first got it, I mentally pulled the front end one way or the other thinking something was broken. However it is one of the stiffest forks I have ridden on. You point the tires and that's where you go. The four sided needle bearings keeps this thing from twisting. Nothing else rides like it.
