    Upgrade to the RockShox Charger cartage. Best $300 you could spend.

    Pros
    Bomb Proof. Easy to setup

    Cons
    Limited adjustments.

    A great low model fork for the budget minded individual. You won't get all the bells and whistles but you do get the same Boxxer plushness.

    A couple of areas of concern: You should check your oil levels before riding. From the factory mine was a little low. Also Boxxers are known to go through seals so as soon as you start to see oil on your stanchions its a good idea to replace them.

    In the end the Boxxer RC really does stand alone. No other dual crown fork can compete with this good of performance at this reasonable of a price.

    Pros
    - Buttery smooth travel just like the rest of the Boxxer family
    - Stiff, especially for the weight
    - Soaks up the big stuff with ease
    - Graphics look fanastic, especially the Boxxer written on the side of the inner stanchion
    - Price

    Cons
    - Basic model with minimal adjustments
    - Adjsutment dials are torture on your fingers
    - Seals need replacing after a couple of months
    - Need to check oil levels

    For the money it is hard to beat the Boxxer Team. Great feeling fork that will hold any line. A higher grade fork does come with a couple of draw backs though: 1) more maintenance (seals) is required; 2) fork flex is compromised over weight.

    For the 2011 version (R2C2) I believe Rock Shox changed the design of the dials to be a bit more 'finger' friendly.

    I would definitely buy another one!

    Pros
    - 35mm stanchions
    - Responsive and plush
    - Easily serviceable
    - Buttery smooth
    - Weight

    Cons
    - Seals need to be replaced more frequent than other company counterparts
    - Adjustment dials are hard to grip and turn
    - slight flex

    Compared to 2010 and previous models the new 2011 WC represents a major improvement on the slow speed sensitivity of the forks abilities to follow the terrain. The comprehensive tuning guide will surely get you riding like a pro. The BoXXer WC is also a great way to knock off half pound of your ride. Installed on a Banshee DH this fork works very well...Read the Pro review for all the details.

    Pros
    Reviewing the 2011 model

    Lightweight.
    Stiff construction with little wheel deflection
    DH Maxle axle works great allowing for fast wheel removal.
    Plenty of adjustment for both compression and rebound allowing for total control over the fork.

    Cons
    none

    They had this on the GT Fury carbon I rode at interbike which is a $7k rig. I took it over to the SRAM guys and they dialed it in just right. Amazing high and low speed compression adjustments, this thing just rolled over anything and made the bike much more forgiving. I wish I had the loot to buy one of these guys..

    Pros
    Fantastic travel and control

    Cons
    Expensive
