Strength:

Slushy sloshy Marzocchi. Makes weird and wonderful noises. They are quite plush, minimal stiction, dual air is very easy to set up. Stiff enough and look great. I like the qr 20mm axle design. All you need is a 4mm Allen key.

Weakness:

They don't like hard hits -ssv for ya. Rebound adjust is inside it somewhere however, to me its no problem.. It feels great as it is.

They are a nice set of zocchis. Plush, reliable, work as they should.. I like them ;)

Strength:

cheap buy off ebay, plush, way stiffer than my old Judy

Weakness:

noisy....has the squishy sucky sound...not the end of the world though...bobs on climbs

got this fork off ebay for a steal, couldnt be happier with it.... absolutely great fork for XC and free ride.... i am a big guy (6'3" 260#) and i cant get it to bottom mout with only 40# of preload.... plush as ever, and soaks up rooots and stuter bumps with ease, way better than my Judy TT could ever have dreamed of...(thats not hard though...LOL)

seems to be a great pair for my trek fuel frame too... climbs good, has a bit of bob though, which can get annoying, im sure if i aired it up more it would bob less but i like a plush fork....

Strength:

Stiff crown, plush travel, darth vader looks, high speed performance

Weakness:

noisy, squishslap on quick small bumps

SWEET, Tracks like a pizza cutter through rock gardens, light enough to ride all day everywhere. Makes all my freeride dreams come true. Perfect if you are a weekend warrior with some interest in freeride and downhill but you only can afford one bike.

Strength:

Very strong design. Has Disc mount. Air Preload. Oil dampening.

Weakness:

Heavy. No dampening adjustment (besides lighter/thicker oil).

This is an excellent shock. It is not for downhilling, or extreme freeride, but for dirt jumping, urban riding, and drops less that 7 feet, it's excellent. It is holding up GREAT. The air preload is sweet, if you want travel, dump the preload, if you need to hit bigger drops, up the pressure. This fork is right for moderate to advanced riders for the appropriate riding.

Strength:

NONE!!!

Weakness:

Heavy, no adjustment besides air preload, damping is CRAP, NOT plush, sucky squishy sound, flexy, quick release, no good for big hits

DONT BUY THIS FORK! Save your money and buy a higher end fork like a Marzocchi 66. Dont fool yourself into thinking the Dropoff is a good shock, because it is the bottom of the barrel. Once you have ridden something that is actually decent, there is no going back. So, take it from one who has ridden one extensively...DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!

Strength:

Strong, burly crown, good for moderate freeriding, can handle 9 - 10 foot drops, cheap and superior compared many other forks in this price range, look cool in flat black, perfect upgrade as an affordable FR rated fork.

Weakness:

Only real weakness for me is the lack of adjustment on the go. But at least theres less to break as with the stance flow I used to have which had adjustments that broke and didn't work.

These forks are performing really well. I mean for the price I payed they work awesome! I switch between a Jr T 20mm DC and these regular QR SC forks on my bike for different types of riding and theres little difference in performance..other than travel and adjustment, I also like to use the single crown for Fr/Dj. The bottom line is that these forks are much better than people say they are..unless you have lots of money or are a poser and just get "better" forks to show off than these are a great buy!

To be fair they're not meant for extreme riding either, they're are meant for moderate freeride. I do moderate/advance freeriding and havn't had a problem yet. I heard you can also put Z1 internals in this fork because it's basically the same. Go and buy one!!!
