For a flex stem with 1 inch of travel that works and with what was considered a pretty innovative design BITD, I'd say it's Cool for that nostalgic purpose, bearing in mind it will never work as intended as a suspended fork 8)

Definately Cool!

Does the job it was designed for. Just like tuning a fork, you need to know how to do it.

I love mine.

In my mind, without doubt, one of the dumbest devices ever to leak out of the Ivory Tower design house. Short of issuing proctologists with boxing gloves for comfort and protection I can't think of a thicker idea than making the actual control area of a bicycle bouncy.

Cool - never owned one, but in the day it was affordable suspension, the bright yellow was kind of cool too 8)

One of the first front suspension I owned…
Heavy ? The first fork weighted more
It was a funny alternative.
I love the XST titanium made :wink:

So, cool :D
