Strengths:    Pretty.

Weaknesses:    limp noodle

Bottom Line:   
This fork got some glowing reviews on a couple of websites, specifically that it is "robust" with "nary a bit of brake chatter". Reynolds' website talks about how the fork is "tested and approved for use on tandems".
I bought it to replace the stock fork on my Salsa Las Cruces. It is a piece of wet spaghetti, flexing more than any fork I've ever used, hands down, and the brake squeal (non-existant with the Salsa fork) can't be tamed with any amount of toe-in on my salmon Kool-Stops, which I've never heard squeal with any other fork. Sure, it's carbon, it's pretty, it'll save half a pound over the Salsa fork, but don't be tempted.
