    Comments about Rockshox XC28 Suspension 26" Fork:

    I have a 1997 Cannondale F500 that keeps on giving me a great ride. It came with a Indy C elastomer fork that was 3.3 stars on mtbr.com reviews. I knew the Indy was was on its' last legs and wanted a lockout for the road. This 17 year upgrade blows it away with coil technology. Much smoother rebound and has poploc remote compatibility. Yes, it is low-end but if your aren't a bike snob that spouts components this works awesome for what I use my bike for: neighborhood exercise over root-invested paths, commuting to gym and store, towing kayak to local lake. I'm 47 now and massive drop biking is a thing of the past. I'm 235 lbs and use a suspension seatpost as well. Great efficiency with the lockout and just the seatpost. With slicks I can ride with my friends who road bike.

            I bought this fork and a new bearing set to upgrade my wife's nearly fused mountain bike fork. This was my first attempt at replacing a fork; heck, it was the first time I have removed a fork. The only difficulty was the crown race install. The difficulty was due to not having the required specialty tool, but YouTube videos had great suggestions and it all came together in the end. The ride is a world of difference from the nearly fused stock fork.

                Comments about Rockshox XC28 Suspension 26" Fork:

                Great fork for someone looking to get an entry level fork that holds up. I have pushed this far beyond its intended usage and it just keeps on performing. Lockout works well but I often forget to turn it off. It has 28mm stancions which does make it feel a bit noodley especially on downhill stuff. I wouldn't run bigger brakes than 160 simply because it flexes too much. If you are trail riding and want to save money then get it, but for all mountain style stuff with bigger 4+ foot drops and techy rock gardens this will fall a bit short.

                  I use this shock up in the hills around camp Pendleton. I like the adjustment and lock out when climbing a hill. Going down hill gives me enough travel. I'm not jumping big air. It does the job for me. 3 to 4 ft. Jumps. Big bang for the buck.

                  I bought a Dawes Roundhouse 2500 and replaced the Suntour that came on the bike with this fork. I was surprised at how well of a fork it was for the price. I am not new to MTB'ing but I am on a budget. It was easy to install. I was surprised to see features like the lockout, and adjustable preload. Its not too heavy but it isnt light either. If you are new to biking or on a budget....this is a perfect way to go.

                    Bought the XC28 to replace the rigid fork on my bike. So far it has performed as advertised. The lockout feature works great which allows you to stand while pedaling without the front end going up and down. It also has an adjustment for preload and rebound. I think this is great entry level front fork.
