Great alternative to Fox 34
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've had to warranty my Fox 34 Factory 130mm Boost 29 on 3 occasions for stanchions creaking in the crown. Finally they offered to put in an e-bike CSU and I declined and sold it on pinkbike to buy this MRP. Overall I really love this fork. It's substantially stiffer laterally than a Fox 34 and very well controlled on most terrain. Only downside I've had so far is that it seems to stiffen up on small high frequency chatter which may be something to do with internal friction of the seals based on reading through forums. MRP just released new seals which the service rep said they could include in my next service and I hear their service is great. So far so good really happy with this purchase. Still baffled on how Fox can sell forks that creak for 900$?

Light and breathable

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size
Height: 6' 2"
Weight: 205 lbs
Size Purchased: M/L

Wore this for a 30 mile / 3500ft loop around DuPont in Pisgah. Mix of XC/Trail/AM and wanted the protection for the chunky downhill sections at Burnt and Big Rock. No issues on the climbs and able to drink from my camelback. Very light and well ventilated. My head measures 60.5cm around and the M/L 58-62m fits me just right with the stock pads. The magnetic strap works well and is a welcome change to the traditional plastic clips. Tip: Lightly grease the metal screw holes for the visor. My previous IXS Trail helmet rusted and swelled out at those two threaded inserts cracking through shell. Not pretty. Also note that the black on black is actually black on grey (see pic). Overall love this helmet and plan to use it whenever there is potential to smash my face.

These things wear out the day you buy them. 41mm hole with 30mm spindle... you do the math. Complete crap creeked and made noise for 1.5 years of riding until I replaced with enduro bb92 kit with no shell. Now my crank is buttery smooth and solid. Can’t believe all the 5 star reviews.

Fit: Runs small
Height: 6' 2"
Weight: 210 lbs
Size Purchased: L

Originally bought an XL and customer service at G-Form managed to get me an L after they were sliding down. I'd say if you are not sure on the size err towards a small. Top notch customer support!!!
The pads themselves are very light and seemless. I've had a couple of light falls on them and they held up great. Actually impressed with how much shock protection they had for how small they are.
They don't absorb sweat so they dry out fast after a ride and they wash super easy unlike my iXS flow which are like sponges and the padding deteriorates and crumbles apart in the wash.
Love the pads and would buy them again. Same for the elbow pads.

It will do the job of integrating with your 1x setup and serving to activate your dropper, but it's definitely a bit archaic. Ergonomics fall way short of a SRAM shifter or even a Shimano shifter. The lever also has a lot of lateral play around the pivot, so you need to make sure when you install it that you give it enough clearance from your brake level assembly because it skews upward when you press it. Also the tiny bolt spec on the fastener for the bar has started to wear on me.

They worked great for like 300-400 miles until I started noticing the rubber start to slack maybe 0.5-1deg twist relative to the housing. Basically the plastic tabs that locate the rubber grip to the metal clamps start to deform. So you get a little play and the grips start to twist slightly even though the metal ends are firmly secured to the bars. Just an annoyance, but not 5 star worthy.

Awesome shoe that I'm sure will last forever. It has held up for over 500 miles and multiple bucket washes with no signs of wear. Feel great except for sometimes I do get numb, but I think that's just me... I feel that on a lot of shoes I've had. Love the size options and thanks CC for shipping me 4 pairs to find my fit. Great customer support!

These cleats work great. They release in those sketchy moments when my previous standard Shimano cleats would have me wreck or tip over. They do have a tendency to come un-clipped more unexpectedly, but I prefer that over wrecking. I found that compared to the standard black cleats, you need to add two rounds of preload to the SPD pedals.

Works great and operates as intended after 800 miles of weekly use over the course of 7 months so far. Initially would make a clicking sound when pressing the lever but that went away after about 3 months or so. Also initially had some very small amount of oil drip on the cable under the post but that has gone away. So some minor break-in issues. 7 months into it, the operation feels like it may have slowed down some, but overall still 90% of what it was new. I could see myself servicing it every 2 years or so with Fox. I would recommend this product.
