    Soaks up chatter, like a boss. This replaced my Reba XX(100mm) and SID XX(120mm). These guys did their homework...

    Pros
    ~ Weighs only 1764g(non-taper, 7" tube)
    ~ Plush, at 120mm
    ~ 20 click rebound damping
    ~ Zero stiction

    Cons
    ~ Made only for short time(2011-2012)

    I have 1500 miles one of these and it has held up well. I originally bought it at 100mm but had it adjusted to 120mm later on.

    Pros
    Great looks, pretty good ride, Simple design, easy to service, great service videos, durable, and reliable.

    Travel Adjustable 80mm, 100mm, or 120mm via internal pin/ladder system

    Cons
    Not the lightest, a little rough over choppy stuff.

    Very nice fork, and for the price, I doubt you can get anything better.

    Pros
    Relatively light, and very cheap for its level of performance

    Cons
    Not really a con and does not bother me, but it does make a quiet pshh sound when hitting big bumps

    It performs just as well as my Fox FLOAT R (from my 2006 Gary Fisher Cake 2 DLX). If you bought a bike with a low-end fork or are building up a frame yourself, give this a look. Very good performance at a reasonable price.

    Pros
    So far, I'm 6 rides into life as an X-Fusion owner. The fork just disappears. Steering precision is very solid. It absorbs the bumps nicely, and has yet to bottom out. The air spring seems to ramp up nicely.

    Cons
    There seems to be a bit of friction at the bottom of the stroke. The stanchion tubes also seem pretty oily, which could mean the seals are not as tight as they should be. The stickers are a bit cheesy and probably won't last long.
