- Very light
- Smooth and super plush
- Durable stanchion finish
- Pinch bolts & no quick release system
- Rebound cartridge broke
- Expensive replacement parts
A very, very plush fork that feels like you're riding on a soft pillow. The Nixon is nice and light and instantly makes the front end responsive and easy to pull up into a manual. However this may be part of its demise... my rebound cartridge blew after only a couple of months of riding. Another downfall is that there is no quick release system and lastly the cost of replacement parts is ridiculous. Probably because they don't make the fork anymore but hey it has to be said.
I wouldn't recommend buying any model of Nixon.
