Strengths:    Light, stiff, reduces road vibration. It doesn't feel any more flexible than the cro-mo fork on my other road bike.

1-1/8" Al steerer tube is stiffer than I expected, even using 50 mm of spacers, as I do.


Weaknesses:    None so far.

Bottom Line:   
I'm very pleased with the performance of this fork.

Appearance is far less important, but the decals on mine are smaller and far more attractive than on samples I've seen on the web.
