That knob on the top cap lets you lock the shock on the fly.

Great price, I would be all over this, but I already have 2 bikes at home.

Pretty good deal for that internal gear setup. Wouldn't want the front shock myself, would just soak up pedaling energy around town.

Not a bad price for what it is.

I'm not a big fan of one-sided forks like this. They weigh more than traditional two-sided forks. The wheel hub has to be beefier which means you can't easily swap out for a different wheel. Outside of looking kind of cool, there's no real advantage.

These are also known as / called the BBQ bike. I have one (no headshock version) and it constantly needs adjusting as the components are low end and basically lousy. They've never been able to get it right @ REI despite multiple attempts. It looks cool and is fine to cruise around on. Bought mine for half this price from a guy who used it a couple times. That being said, the Trek is a much better bike for the $ if you plan to ride much.

The advantage is that it's stiffer and resists torsional load more than a conventional QR skewered fork. This provides better tracking. But the rest of what you said is accurate. And are you comparing the weight to rigid or suspension forks? I suspect that this fork weighs less and has a better lockout than a lot of suspension forks.

The lockout on Cannondale Lefty and related shocks are incredibly good.

I'm just going off the general research I've done on single blade forks versus dual blade of the same type. Generally, to make the single blade strong enough manufacturers have to add more material to the fork than they would have used to make a conventional dual blade fork.Perhaps this particular fork is lighter; I haven't researched it specifically.

There may be some stiffness/torsional load benefits, however for a bike such as this which is intended more for city/recreational riding, I feel that few people will actually push the bike hard enough that they would notice a difference.

I'm not begrudging anyone for wanting a single blade fork. I just feel that for the most part it's a solution looking for a problem. Smilie

If you consider dirt/gravel paths mountain biking, then yes. If you are looking at lots of jumps and steep inclines, then no.

The lack of rear suspension would reduce the size of jumps this would be able to take. The IGH hub won't have the ideal range for a lot of the big hills serious mountain bikers look to climb.
