Pros: Holds air very well, keeps adjustment, low maint, lockout really works

Cons: Sometimes I bump the lockout lever and it flips to locked out

Recommendation: I have had this shock for 2 seasons and it has held up well, like the other reviewer I run mine softer than recommended. The lockout works great but sometimes I bump it and it flips to locked out - no big deal just a little annoying.

Pros: Very easy to adjust the air pressure to your riding style and comfort, great feeling shock with a lockout that works perfect...feels like a hardtail when climbing. Smooth and stable over rough terrain. Not too bad of a price either.

Cons: N/A

Recommendation: Depends on your riding style, but I set mine about 5 psi lower than recommended by the manual for my body weight.
