Handles terrain like a goat. Just because you're on a budget doesn't mean you can't ride a suspension fork that gives you excellent, smooth control. The Markhor features our KwikToggle damper with easy on/off lockout. With travel between 100mm and adjustable to 120mm, 80-100mm on (26"), the Markhor fork smooths out any line the trail puts in front of you.

    Plush Ride For 26ers

    Regardless the hype, nothing steers as precisely as a 26" mountain bike. It's great there's still something available to keep those going in style. Handles everything from big rocks to small bumps in comfort with good contact throughout. Not even terribly heavy. Looks a little weird though...

    Very happy now!

    When I ordered my fork, it arrived broken and unfixable (local bike shop couldn't sort it out). After contacting Hayes, I returned it and they sent me a new one. It was a massive upgrade from the stock coil fork but it jumped even further in performance once I installed the ABS+ damper. For the money, I don't know how you beat this fork. Hayes customer service was also fantastic.


    The fork showed up busted right out the gate. Bike is still at the shop, waiting for some Manitou specialist to email back and get this situation sorted out. It's been 3 days at this point. Hopefully it gets fixed soon to make this ordeal worth it in the end. I'll change the review if and when it gets fixed and installed. sad face.gif


    Works as intended. Good product.

    Very Satisfied with Caveats

    I've been completely upgrading a recently purchased 26" big box Mongoose Durham - only a wheelset left to install. The Markhor (on sale via the Hayes Website) was a perfect purchase, install, and consequent ride. The ride is markedly smoother and with the bonus of an unexpectedly slight increase in wheelbase, the steering is more slack on this little Mongoose. All of this makes my bike much more stable and fun to ride.

    Alas, a few complaints: no included user manual, no included installation guide, and necessary Markhor pdf downloads woefully out-of-date and/or simply unavailable. Online discussions also point out this frustrating lack of corporate support. Nonetheless, I am pleased with the Markhor despite the above disappointments.
