Rated 2 out of 5 by andybmx good forks but quality is poor
Had these forks since 2012 but they are exactly the same as the 2014 and were excellent up until a few weeks ago (so they were 18 months old), where there was cracks at the bottom of the fork legs on both sides near the axle. they were great forks up until I noticed these cracks but chain reaction were great and refunded my money so overall the forks were good until they cracked but a good service by chain reaction

Rated 5 out of 5 by rememe the best one!
You cant go wrong with this fork! If you are considering between argyle RC, MZ DirtJumper and circus go for circus!
I've got this fork for about one year and its really good, no problems, working super fine, stiff, no servis needed. You cant match this fork with fox ones ;)
If you are asking why circus and not dj or argyle then here is the answer: circus is super lightweight, its air based, in my opinion air forks are allways better then coil ones because of easyer set up. Its more durable, It will survive everything you will throw at it.
The best choice for all kind of riding, street/park/dirt!
