    The axle is stiff. It is easy to set up and adjust. Also, changing the oil is easy. A great fork.

    Pros
    Stiff
    20mm thru axle
    Lightweight

    Cons
    Lack of compression adjustment

    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.

    Pros
    - Very light
    - Smooth and super plush
    - Durable stanchion finish

    Cons
    - Pinch bolts & no quick release system
    - Rebound cartridge broke
    - Expensive replacement parts

    smooth as silk over some extreme terrain. You ride a mountain bike fr a reason, get a shock that does what it is supposed to do. Buy this (but haggle fr a good deal)!

    Pros
    The increased travle over the '06 model, looks, and it is bomb proof.

    Cons
    pricey
