The Review
If you are going to get it aftermarket, get the race version, much nicer finish and a bit better dampening. This came stock on my bike, but I'm content with it. Steering is very accurate and it soaks up those bumps just good.

Weaknesses
-Finish isn't as nice as the duke race
-Not alot of poserism value for people that like to go to ECP all the time

" Sweet Fork!! "


Overall Rating
Reviewed on: 8th Apr 2004 from Singapore

The Review
Got it stock on my Klein. This is one fork i really like performace wise except for the fact that it lacks the lockout feature. Looks pretty neat especially in the silver/grey finish. Nice fork especially for heavier riders cos it's stiff. It's also quite affordable and doesn't blow a substancial hole in your pocket. If u don't need lockout, get it...u won't regret it.

Strengths
Relatively light, looks sweet, real plush, stiff. Fairly priced.

Weaknesses
No lockout...

Duration of product used
Less than 1 month

Bike Setup
Klein Attitude V with a whole bunch of pocket blowing parts!!

Similar Products Tried
Lotsa of forks...
