Best do it all fork Ever!
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

My Santa Cruz 5010c had one thing holding it back, the RockShox fork. I never really liked the feel of the RockShox and to add insult was the creaking noise it made as I pound down the rocky abusive trails found in the northeast. From the word go I immediately felt a difference in stiffness. The fork doesn’t bob or dive and I can trust that my front wheel is planted wherever I point it. Going up from 130mm to 140mm was a nice minor change as well. Santa Cruz should spec this fork from factory for the 5010. The fine tuning found on the factory fork is wonderful and didn’t take me long to dial it in. Did I mention the stiffness? If you have questions or want more detail give me shout. Otherwise if you are in the market for a new fork buy this one. If you ride a Pike give it away and step up to a great fork!

3 5

I had been running a set of Fusion 3 on my Fulcrum Racing 0 wheels for around 4000 miles with no issue other than air loss after sitting a day in my rear tire. So I replaced the tire and found the slow leak in the process. However, I’ve now been through two more rear tires and both have had the same issue. They are defective with sidewall cracks. I even purchased the tires from different shops so it’s not like it was a bad batch. Both shops have taken them back under warranty. My original front tire is still going strong. Therefore I’m giving them a mixed review. If you get a good tire they are great long lasting with a nice feel, but if you get a bad set look out for sidewall cracks.
