    Good reliable fork. The best thing about these is that they are so easy to adjust rebound and travel. It is not made for huge air or big drops. Great XC shock that is rugged and capable for trail use. (This is a much better shock after some inexpensive upgrades. See "Updates" below).

    **Updates** Bumped up rating to 4 after upgrading to the recommended stiffer spring for my 215 Lbs rider weight with gear. It was a very simple installation. This shock is no longer under-gunned as previously listed on the "Cons" section. It also does not blow through the travel on bigger hits any more.

    I also upgraded this fork by adding a MoCo Damper with lockout (Rock Shox Argyle adjustable Motion Control Compression Damper). It was only $60, and it was super easy to install. WOW!! This was a huge upgrade! This added adjustable compression damping, adjustable floodgate control (just like a pro-pedal), and a lock-out. No more pedal-bob for ultra-efficient climbing, no more brake dive, and it can handle small drops much better. It is also much more composed when hoping logs and handling rougher bumpy terrain. This completely transformed the fork's capabilities.

    Pros
    Inexpensive, easy to adjust.

    Cons
    Springs are a bit under-gunned (fixed with stiffer spring), heavy.
