    Stock on my bike. Very responsive. Rebound adjustable. Old news now but a little before it's time in 2011. LOL

    Pros
    Smooth, adjustable, lockout feature

    Cons
    None

    I've ridden with this fork for about 18mos (all conditions/weather/terrain) and over 2k miles. This baby has performed flawlessly. Just went to have it serviced and my LBS told me this thing still looked brand new. Wow. This despite the fact that a number of my bearings and joints needed to be replaced.

    Pros
    Love the 3 position options. Nice feel. Very reliable.

    Cons
    Can be pricey.

    This came fitted to my Orbea Occam TR H10 and it hasn't put a step wrong. I understand it's not built for some of the rougher stuff, but for cross-country or regular trails it's been performing really well

    Pros
    Silky-smooth
    Fairly light
    Tough enough for most trails
    That gold colour

    Cons
    Having to wait for the Factory Transfer dropper post!

    A decent option if you're on a budget I suppose; the CTD is sweet and easy to use, rebound is fairly easy to adjust, but the travel felt a little less than smooth at times

    Pros
    Performs pretty well, awesome adjustability, CTD is awesome

    Cons
    Could feel a little grating in the travel, a little heavy

    I was looking to upgrade the stock fork on my bike, and I had my heart set on a Reba, but I couldn't get the through axle with a 1-1/8 steerer. So I ended up buying the Fox, and I am glad I had to spend the extra money. This thing is amazing in every way. it eats up everything i can throw at it. I think I will be sticking with fox in the future. don't get fooled with the performance or evo line. They simply aren't the same as the Factory Float

    Pros
    FIT4
    Kashima Coating
    Smooth as butter
    Many adjustments in the open setting

    Cons
    None other than price

    I am testing this shock, trying to go lighter, but after all is said and, I think I'm probably going back to a 35 or 36 mm stanchion.

    Pros
    Good travel adjustment; lightweight; FIT system allows you to adjust to your riding style well; 150mm travel is sufficient for most riding except DH

    Cons
    32mm is a bit "flexy". It's a bit soft for my tastes; I have to increase the air pressure well over recommendations to get the firmness I like which then limits full use of the travel

    Great fork and can take whatever you through at it. The CTD gives you the option to tighten or loosen up your front end to your liking. This fork has good balance and don't fold over on sharp turns. The smooth 120mm's of travel lets your front wheel stay in contact with the trail and take the recoil out of your arms to give you a plush ride.

    Pros
    CTD adjuster, 120mm of travel, well constructed, good rake balance, and smooth action.

    Cons
    A little heavy

    I recommend this to anyone looking for an affordable fork with a ton of travel.

    Pros
    CTD: Climb setting really makes a difference and feels just like a rigid fork, Trail setting is a happy medium, Descent setting opens up all 160mm of travel and makes the descents feel like butter. Coming from a 100mm Suntour, this fork has changed my riding ability overnight.

    Cons
    Many reviewers in the bike mags criticize the 32 for lack of rigidity and recommend the 34, unless you are a very seasoned rider and hit the burliest of trails this won't be a con for you, but I guess it must be said.

    Pros
    Excellent adjustability and small bump compliance. Light weight.

    Cons
    Not as laterally stiff as some other forks in the rough stuff.

    awesome fork helps control bike through rough stuff tough and reliable.

    Pros
    awesome response to terrain smooth feel, handles the rough stuff and makes it feel like nothing.

    Cons
    doesn't really respond to trail chatter so if you have any waahboard like trails it kinda sucks

    Highly recommended. Great air fork for any build bike. The price is awesome for the value you get out of this item.

    Pros
    Highly tunable and customizable.

    Cons
    Tough to dial in for lighter weight riders. Needs constant servicing.

    If the travel length is right this forks rocks. The fox app set up my fork with way too much pressure. I had to go old school and measure out a 20% sag.

    Pros
    Stiff, good ctd, kashima rocks

    Cons
    Not much.

    The float legend lives on with CTD. This is a great fork that is super plush over harsh terrain, and made even better when it is dialed in via CTD. The kashima uppers stay clean on the trail while providing much less friction than regular uppers. The FiT damper works well but looks like a pain to service.

    Pros
    Plush feel on the trail. CTD damper. Easy to service/maintain. Kashima.

    I'd recommend it. During extended climbs I use the travel adjustments to vary my body position just enough to stave off back pain. Of course, the 100mm setting is great for climbing the steep stuff. I use 140mm for pretty much everything else - including climbing big steps that require the extra clearance.

    Pros
    The travel adjustment from 140/120/100mm helps to balance climbing and descending.

    Cons
    The frequency of maintenace that all fox products seem to require.

    Highly recommend this suspension. Aside from the above listed benefits, it even came in a color (gold color) to compliment the frame of my trek, which makes the total bike look sweet.

    Pros
    This is the front suspension that came stock on my 2011 Trek Fuel EX 7. Previously on my other bikes I had some of the lower priced Rock Shox suspension systems (which I loved). This shock took such an adjustment period for me to get used to, but not for bad reasons, it simply was user error and learning curve! This thing is so plush and absorbing, that I would sometimes fall due to EXPECTING a jolt over certain rocks when there was none. Absolutely glides over most obstacles and feels so sturdy. I have even done some 1 and 2 foot drops and jumps with it, and it absorbs those landings like it was nothing.

    Cons
    Not a con, but actually takes a little time to adjust it to fit your weight, riding style etc. The adjustments (rebound etc) are actually a pro for most, but for someone not use to all the adjustments, it took me some time to figure out what worked for me. Once I did, I could not ask for anything better.

    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.

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

    Cons
    -Internal hardware tightened itself and caused fork to lock

    It's a good quality lightweight fork that performs great, and won't let you down on the rides. It does however tend to need more attention than some other brands.

    Pros
    - quality made
    - works very well as intended
    - relatively lightwieght comparatively speaking
    - easy to adjust
    - plush ride
    - can pick a line and hold it
    - Looks sharp on a bike

    Cons
    - Leaky
    - seals blow easy
    - preasure needs to be checked and maintained regularly
