Badass forks

Rating:
The Good:

Im not a fan of S&M but these are strong forks they are heat treated and not bad deal for the cost for them there also very light to but the best thing is that they are american made forks

The Bad:

Trading them for fit forks is a bad thing to do and also Bolt that comes with it is easy to strip out i had the right Allen key for it and it still stripped it also u cant put fat tires on them

Overall Review:

I recomend this to a friend and worth the price

One of the few USA Made forks

Rating:
The Good:

Made in the USA, Not to tapered, look good, reasonable weight, Great warranty

The Bad:

33mm offset (Not my style of Riding), Dropout Bent from heavy peg use

Overall Review:

i would say these forks would be better for pegless street riders or park/trail riders. I Bent my dropout pretty bad after about 8-10 months of heavy peg use. The plus side is they took care of the fork and sent me a new one. I love that there made in the USA, if you like pegs i would recommend the S&M Fastpitch's.

GOOD FORKS

Rating:
The Good:

it is a great fork really light the dropouts look awesome they have nice decals

The Bad:

they cost a lot if you grind, you will surely damage or sketch the lower part of the fork sometimes the compression bolt caused me some problems it's design is basic, not as shadow or eclat forks for ex

Overall Review:

i ride them for about a year. they didn't cause me problems yet. they are solid but overpriced. i sometimes had problems with the compression bolt
