December 17, 2012
Model/Year: 80mm

Pros: -Super plush
-Easy to set up/adjust
-Looks great

Cons: -Internal hardware tightened itself and caused fork to lock

Recommendation: I had an older model of this fork (it had been "Pushed") and the small screws holding the lock out knob on managed to tighten themselves down to the point that the fork locked itself out. It was the strangest thing to figure out.

Model/Year: 2012

Pros: Buttery smooth, smooth, and buttery

Cons: price

Recommendation: I rode this on a test ride about a month ago and did not want to give the bike back simply because of this suspension. This fork is by far nicer than anything else I have ridden.

Model/Year: 2010

Pros: Super plush
Looks good too

Recommendation: Great value. Go for it.

December 24, 2011
Pros: Plush, smooth, clean holds pressure good.

Cons: Expensive.

Recommendation: I have the 80 &120mm. Converted 80 to 100mm for free by removing the spacer. 120mm is 15mm axle and super nice like butter.

Model/Year: 2011 32 F29 FIT RLC 120mm 15QR w/ Kashima Coat

Pros: Super Plush, tons and tons of adjustability, lightweight and very stiff

Cons: Expensive, a little complex to dial in

Recommendation: Best fork I've owned to date...however, there isn't an enormous difference from the 2010 Reba race that I had prior to this. At least not as far as I can tell yet (only have a few rides on it). Outstanding fork, but if you're a smart shopper you can find the Reba at a fraction of the Fox's price.
