Strengths:    Steers great, gobbles impact up to a point, reasonably priced

Weaknesses:    No light weight

Bottom Line:   
Turned my bike into the one it should have been to start with. Now I know what Colin Edwards means when he says "I have confidence in the front end." Absorbs small road vibration much better but big hits (railroad tracks) shoot straight thru. No lighter than the OE noodle but much faster in every instance. Turns in to the curve effortlessly, tracks thru without a care, staightens up like it never turned. Goes where you're looking. Quiet.

Bottom Line:   
the performance of this fork is outstanding!it is reasonably light (504 grams)offers excellent lateral rigidity when hammering out of the saddle,and tracks dead- on when decending at high speed,it is priced affordably,and for the money I don,t think there is a better fork out there,anyone wanting to instantly rev up their bike to a high performance machine,should check this model out,It,s a winner in every aspect.

Strengths:    Looks good, smooth ride

Weaknesses:    none yet

Bottom Line:   
I replaced the stock kinesis aluminum fork with the BSC. I got the BSC because the price was right, it seemed sturdy, and is straight bladed. Cool aero style look - lighter than the stock fork - and performs. Rides great - stable - handles - I can't believe the improvement. Good customer service - e-mailed Performance Design about installation and got an immediate - and useful - answer from a tech. All in all I'm glad I got it. It makes the bike much much better. I can't see going back after this fork.
Five stars!!!
