Pros: Leaks less than most fox other fox forks. Not a boat anchor but not a feather either.
Cons: The model I used only came in a QR axle but apparently that's been fixed.
Recommendation: I got to use one of these from a buddy's Fuel EX8 and it got the job done without casuing any headaches along the way. Unlike some of the other fox forks I have owned, this one seemed to have no seal issues.
Pros: Nice light fork that is smooth and versatile. '07 version allows you to change the travel by changing the internal stack. Simple to disassemble and maintain. Lockout is a nice touch for long uphill fire roads.
Cons: Wish it was offered in a 20mm version. Not as torsionaly rigid as forks with beefier dropouts or larger stanchions. Go with the Fox 36 Float if you are looking for stiffness.
Recommendation: A sweet Trail fork that will get the job done. Have the 130mm Float 32 RL on a Trek EX8 and it matches the bike perfectly, from color to performance.
Pros: The forks offer a very noticable and adjustable dampening/rebound. I've rode them in various terrain and they definetly soak up the bumps. It's not just something on a sales brochure to get you to buy them. So they can be easily dialed in for a variety of terrain and riding styles. They also live up the quality you know you'll get when you buy a product from Fox.
Cons: Until I dialed them in for me, they were prone to diving during heavy breaking. A little air and some playing with the dampening/rebound eventually fixed the problem. They are a bit pricey for a entry level Fox fork.
Recommendation: If you want a quality ride and the dependability of Fox products, but don't race or huck the big gaps, these are the top of the line for relativly little money. They will help keep your front wheel on the ground over the bumps and keep you from getting "monkey butt" on the long epic rides...GREAT FORKS
