Pros: - good all round trail fork
- very popular
- rides nice
- easy to adjust and does not require tons of tinkering to get it right

Cons: - middle of the road fork

Recommendation: This fork is very popular and performs well. It does not require tons of attention and tinkering to have a nice ride, it is a fork you can have confidence in.

Pros: Since I have this fork I feel I can take any jump/drop. It stands everything and it's really comfortable

Cons: None

Recommendation: Strongly reccomended, if you improve your 70-100 mm fork with this, you´ll feel like in heaven.

Pros: I love the feel and ride of this shock. I ride some pretty ruff single track with 3 and 4 foot jumps/drop offs and this shock takes them in stride.

Cons: None so far

Recommendation: I'd recommend this shock to anyone but DH'ers

Pros: Plush coil sprung travel, fairly stiff

Cons: Seals suck.

Recommendation: Love the feel of Fox forks, hate the fact that they are notorious oil leakers. If you can stand the mess, great fork. Or send it to Push Industries for better seals.

Pros: Super super plush! Stiff, relatively cheap compared to other Fox forks. Breeds confidence on the trail.

Cons: No travel adjustment

Recommendation: I've put about 400 XC country miles on a Vanilla 140 and so far so good. I would definitely recommend this fork

December 15, 2007
Pros: Stiff fork, Simple Reliability, Easy Adjustment, Super supple

Cons: Sort of a pain to get the different weight coil springs, but it's worth it.

Recommendation: This a simple, yet amazing fork, almost no stiction, soft thru all the travel, and as durable as hell.

Pros: The Vanilla is a very responsive fork. Easily adjustable for travel. The lock out works great on long climbs. Along with adjustable rebound and compression, it's like butter over the small stuff. Like roots aren't even there. I have truly tortured this fork on some pretty big stuff, yet not a hitch. Great XC fork.

Cons: none

Recommendation: If you are looking to upgrade to a fork with 80-125mm travel for XC, this is your fork. It can handle just about anything. I have this fork on a Rocky Mountain ETSX-70 and love it.
