Are you a suspension nerd? Do you miss the old days when you could change the negative and positive air chamber before all these solo air systems came out? If you answered yes to either of the questions then this is the fork for you! I have had a helm for over a year in both the 29 and 27.5 variations and have tried going back to RockShox and fox after riding it and just cannot. If you can confidently tune your suspension then you will love this fork. A huge pro of it is the fork can range from a 170-130 without needing to change and oils and mess with buying new air spring to change the travel. Cane Creek sends 4 red 10mm tokens that are easily added or removed to be able to change the travel to whatever length you would like. If that doesn't peak you interest one of the other really cool features of this fork is the ability to internally change the progressiveness of the air spring without having to deal with buying tokens. The system is right underneath the air spring valve and can get a better adjustment as compared to the one sized volume spacers that RockShox uses. All in all, after riding this one I don't see myself every purchasing fox or RockShox forks in the near future and in fact Cane Creek just released the MKII of this fork and as soon as I saw the announcement put in an order for the new version to see what upgrades they make to an already incredible fork

The Unicorn you've been looking for!
- I've used it several times
Well you've found it! This is probably one of the most versatile forks you will currently find on the market. What makes it so versatile you ask well it's quite simple actually. Adjustable Length, adjustable negative chamber and no need to buy air tokens it as it all! I've ridden this fork on three different bikes in the last three weeks. I've ridden on the Ibis Ripley as a 140mm, the Yeti SB100 as a 120mm and just last weekend on my HD5 as a 150. On each bike it performed flawlessly and has some of the best small bump compliance in the business. I throw it on my wife's bike who likes a bit softer of a ride and I simply adjust the negative chamber for her. The fork comes with everything you need to adjust travel minus the tools. A 13mm, 19mm and 22mm wrench and you can change the travel yourself in about 5 minutes with a little practice. Service intervals fall in line with Fox, Rockshox etc.. What stands out on this fork is the attention to detail and ease of use. All the knobs are precisely machined and have positive clicks. Want to change an air token, remove the air cap, spin wing nut, move the ramp control disc and spin the wing nut back down. Takes about 5 minutes and you don't need any additional parts. Sag setup is also quite simple. Pump the fork up to about 1/2 your weight, equalize the negative chamber by pushing in a presta type valve on the bottom of your fork and that's it. (well as long as it's in your sag range) My only real complaint is the D-Loc axle (not shown but does come with fork) Nothing wrong with it, it quick and easy to use but I would simply prefer some threads. Pros: Excellent Small bump Compliance Adjustability Bang for your buck Cons: D-Loc Axle no 37mm offset for the new crop of 27.5's does not come with a fender
