I've enjoyed my two seasons on this fork already. Took a bit for the X-firm spring I added to break in, but once it did the fork was perfectly plush. The adjustments are easy to make at home or on the trail. What made it really sweet was the price. Perfect for my 6'4", 220 lbs self. Highly recommended.
This fork has performed really well for my intended purpose; Singlespeed build. The adjustments are easy and reactive, adding air pressure is a 'breeze'. The only thing really holding this back from being 5 stars is that the fork does flex a bit under hard braking. Some may not notice this but coming from a downhill background and having a large rotor up front I can definitely feel the flex. This may be somewhat characteristic of 29er forks in general but overall I can say it is a great fork for the price.
