Well everything so far...remote lock outs great.

Weakness:

I put an 800 fox spring on and preloaded it and its great the 650 dnm spring was too light....i do a fair bit or dirt jumping and raced with it and it still goin strong..the rebounds nice. Now im scared for the blowout!

Remote Lock-out, real PPPLUUUSSSHHH!!!!

This is a remarkable piece. It has a remote control lock-out when do climbs. A bit heavy. I'll give this five chilis for its performance.

Strength:

Feels great, compression & rebound adjustment that actually works!

Weakness:

how easily the shock blows

I purchased the frame with shock brand new and within 1 hour it had blown, (without doing anything big). The guys at Don Skene cycles have said they will replace the shock, which is a bonus. Before the shock blew it felt brilliant, really plush and was a joy to ride on. Ill have to wait to see if the shock i got was a one-off and ill base my ratings on when the shock was fine!

Strength:

Great plush rear shock, the lock out is an absolute god send

Weakness:

if ur a heavy rider you may need upgrade the spring to somthing heavier and also i managed to blow it within a month......

When the shock works, its great but i am not impressed with getting a month of riding and it blowing, the rest of the bike is just starting to bed in

Strength:

Cheap Very Adjustable

Weakness:

Long term durability. Everyone else I know has blown theres
Including one guy who cracked the main body and oil was leaking through the crack.

This shock is very cheap but it suffers greatly in durability

Strength:

Incredible Shock, great adjustability, very plush, needed almost no break in, remote lockout, actually gives a much more confidence inspiring ride than either of the Rock Shox I tried, especially the SID

Weakness:

None at all

Impossible to beat for any where near close to the money, and compares favorably to shocks costing 2X as much. Fully reccommended to anyone who needs a ultra-high quality shock with remote, handlebar mounted lockout.

I think this shock is way better than Rock Shox and Fastrx shocks. Almost as good as Fox, but at a really low price.

Strength:

Very Plush and Very adjustable

Weakness:

The damn thing blew after 2 days moderate riding

This would be a superb shock if DNM didnt stand for dynamite i.e. Blows Up. I would be fitting the replacement coyote send me Fox have ha d a fone call
I would recommend it for very light riders who dont go over anything bigger than a curb stone otherwise It may bend or blow!!

Strength:

This Rear Shock is a very nice and easy adjustable shock. It has good rebound and good soft and hardness. Also, this shock has nice travel. So far I have been doing 6 foot jumps and haven't even managed to make it blow. Regularly i do about 2 foot jumps for practice and ride down stairs without standing up and yet it absorbs the shakes well. I'm glad i didn't waste my money on something that blows that easily.

Weakness:

As people hjave said before it is easy to blow and yet i have heard few people who used the same shock have any problems. Also, the softness of the shock going down is still too firm for mountain biking.... The rebound sometimes changes slightly and the lock doesn't work well. Also this rear shock takes lots of time to soften.

This shock is good but if your frame doesn't match it well then its a waste of money. The rebound has a very nice adjustable feature and lock out. ALthough the lockout mayb break down if u do larger jumps. Going down stairs with ur butt on the seat is aboslutely fine but it isn't a good idea. I just do it to soften it. It also has a good air pressure adjustment which helps the stiffness of the shock. The origional sporing isn't too good for any of the frames.. a different type of spring or weight of the spring would be more suitable.
