) popped off and hit my helment aswell as the lower rebound knob had snapped clean off.
The all new for '55 Splice Super delivers value and performance at a great price.
I can't say what it would do on big air stuff because where I ride anything more than a few feet will end bad but for true AM riding I have no complaints.
I like it so much that it will be going on my Turner 5 Spot that will be here next weekI own 8.

Give it purpose fill it with books, DVDs, clothes, electronics, and more.
But was on the bike bought and matched the Red, white, blue rig paint scheme.
Getting to the worst part was when I hit a nice log run and the fork did a poor job of absorbing the bumps even when the compression was adjusted which didn't seem to do much.

This is the 685mm comp no frills modle (I'd rather spend my time riding than trying to dial crap in or count grams) AM riding in the muck, roots and rocks of Capitol Forest in the Pacific Northwest is no joke and not for the faint of heart and in the 5 years I've owned it it this fork has never let me down.

I like it so much that it will be going on my Turner 5 Spot that will be here next weekSo here's the deal.
So here's the deal. I didn't mind becuase it rode fairly but was way too springy feeling. I weigh just this side of 855 Lbs fully geared up and I've never bottomed this thing out and it doesn't have so much as a little leak anywhere.

They seem to be built as if they were made by different manufacturers. Luckily, I was able to thread the stupid cap on and rode (limped the bike) back to the parking lot where little to my dismay.
