Strength:

Very plush, lock out easy to get to and works very well.

Weakness:

Slight hissing sound on upstroke. little over 4lbs if you area weight weenie

When I first got the bike I saw a killer deal ona used G2 Fox F29 from a Superfly. I had it and used it a good bit. Great fork. We I remembered I had the Trek 5 yr warranty on my entire bike including the fork. I needed the $ so I sold the Fox and put the original back on. Once sagged it rode great. Every bit as plush and smooth as the Fox was. It just make an annoying hiss on the upstroke. I was worried I would be mad at taking off the Fox but honestly, its rides just as nice.

I am judging the value by the retail price as compared to my Fox F29 and the performance between them

Strength:

Very plush... Easy to maintain with the single air valve... Holds up well to my 6 foot / 225 lb abuse... Lock-out works well as does the rebound/compression...

Weakness:

Wish it has aluminum steerer and stanchions.... Tad heavy for the $$$....

I would recommend this fork to anyone that wants a no-nonsense fork that it easy to use/maintain, but does not mind a bit of weight... I think it weighed in about 4.5 lbs.... I would buy again at the same price, but not at the retail price...

Strength:

Excellent damping, very laterally stiff for a QR fork, Air spring is very plush

Weakness:

Weight, for the price it should have an alloy steer tube

This is for a 2008 Tora 318 Solo Air 29er

This fork is every bit the equal of a Fox Vanilla as far as plush suspension and stellar damping. The motion control damper is strait from the more expensive Reba and works excellent. The solo air spring is infinitely adjustable and holds air great. My only complaint is the weight...I like the Cro-Mo stanchions but would like to see an alloy steer tube at this price point.
