Strengths:    light, smooth,

Weaknesses:    flexes, decreases sprint max

Bottom Line:   
I liked this fork when I originally switched from my steel Fuji frame and fork. Although as I got stronger I can cause it to flex enough that my speed magnet hits the reciever. I only weigh 160 lbs. I feel it is flimsy.

Strengths:    it is carbon, that is always a plus. the steerer tube is also carbon, for weight reduction.

Weaknesses:    none.

Bottom Line:   
this is an excellent fork, it allows me to feel the road without hurting me. it is super light, i wasnt used to it at first, but quickly adjusted. i would recommend this fork to anybody with some cash that wants a good ride.

Jacket Review: Arc'Teryx Atom SV

This winter I added an Arc'Teryx Atom SV to my stable of cold weather gear and it has become my default for riding in weather colder than 10 degrees. The cut is trim but not constricting and the arms are long enough to not gap or ride up on the bike. For me this jacket is drastic overkill over ab ... Read More »
