    Hey dudes ---- Anyone heard of Spinner forks?

    I came across their web site the other day, but I have never seen any of their forks on a bike. Are they quality? Anyone here ride a Spinner?
    Punk rock? What is that, some kind of joke?

    I'm not sure what type of riding you are doing but they are supposed to make very nice cross country forks. They are one of the lightest forks available (under 2.5 pounds) and supposed to ride very nice. Unfortunately I have no first hand experience with them. I would imagine the Aeris would be comparable to a SID.

    As for are they quality, for $699 the Aeris had better be pretty decent quality. Of course the cheaper forks are probably more comparable to cheaper forks from other companies. For example, don't expect too much out of something like the Grind 1 for $99. You get what you pay for.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    Spinner is the new name for "InSync" brand forks. Many of them come OE on low-end Treks.

    Wasn't aware of that, good to know.

    A while ago it was posted that Spinner and InSync were the same company. I'm not sure if Spinner acquired InSync or if they've always been the same thing.

    I know the Spinner/Insync Grind still comes stock on the Trek 4300. Not sure about the other bikes.
