Bent way to easily
This fork bent very easily during normal riding. Im not a downhill or dirt jumper. Just an average cross country rider. I hung up my front wheel on a root at average trail speed and the fork bent backwards. Only had it for a couple months. Buy a Surly 1x1 fork. Much thicker steel and twice as durable. Weak sauce Salsa...

Nice
I put one of these (425mm axle to crown)on a mountain bike frame from the 90's. It replaces a 60-65mm travel fork perfectly without changing the geometry of the bike. The welds look very nice, and the paint seems to be durable (so far). The forward facing dropouts take a little getting used to but look very nice. These forks track nicely and don't have much flex, gerat for xc riding, would probably be sweet on a rigid singlespeed build too.

PROS: Rigid, Light, Good Looking

Simple and well built rigid fork
I, like the other reviewer, bought this for use on an older steel frame that is living a second life as a commuter.

The fork has held up to rain, snow and slush without scratching or pitting. The paint is quite durable.

I have never ridden the fork off road, so I cannot attest to it's trail-worthiness, but judging by it's stiffness, it probably rides well.

At 1100 grams it's no lightweight.

PROS: Stiff, Well Made, Nice paint

CONS: Heavy

BEST USES: MTB, Commuter

great fork
salsa cromoto disk only fork is nice! converted raleigh and specialized mtb to urban commuters with this. has enough room to run 29" tire also. just right amount of compliance on aluminum frames for comfort with out seeming weak. and less then half the weight of cheap pogo sticks bikes came with.

PROS: Lightweight, Attractive Design, Durable
