I put this fork on my Cannondale M800 to upgrade the old Judy's it had. Gotta say the increase in suspension really helped the bike's performance. Still, I wouldn't use this for for heavy riding (enduro, all-mountin, etc.). It's more of a cross-country fork that'll even out the bigger bumps and keep you pretty planted when you're riding a rough strech downhill. I'd definitely recommend it for basic riding, but if you've got the budget, go for something a little more expensive that is more adjustable while you are riding.
Bottom Line: I'd recommend this for a basic upgrade on a budget (like me), or for someone who wants suspension that works like it ought to.

I slapped one of these in 29" size (from my GT Karakoram Elite purchased from Jenson) on an old 26" Specialized Rockhopper A1FS Comp (1997). It gave new life to that old bike and now I use it for casual paved trail rides with my son on a trailer-bike. The fact that it is a 29'' on a 26" bike doesnt seem to affect the geometry in any meaningful way. This fork also allowed installing hydraulic disc brake up front. Kept the original V-brake out back. Lockout works great. Overall grreat upgrade to the Indy XC original fork which sems like complete junk in comparison.

    Product works great and performs it's duties well. When replacing 1 inch threaded forks you need a cap bolt and star nut, this fork should come with these items

        Replacement for stock fork on my Rockhopper Comp. Lock out works well. Plenty of travel for steep fast cross country. Works like a shock should. My bike weighs about 200 lbs...30 lbs bike plus 170 lbs of me...weight doesn't matter.

            This fork does exactly as advertised. The lock out feature works great but I was most impressed by how much I was able to adjust the rebound damping with a simple turn of a dial on the bottom of the fork. Rock deflection was minimal. It has been a huge upgrade to my old Specialized Hardrock stock fork. I love riding it again.
