Uncool. All the kids in the street wanted one and my brother was lucky enough to get one fitted on a Raleigh Apex. But the 16" frames came with a girvin so short that you couldn't move it a millimetre even with a soft elastomer.

True that they were for people too cheap for rock shox but totally useless for anything below a 150mm stem.

I liked mine until the welding failed but thankfully I was just on my way back from work and almost at home otherwise it could have been nasty.
