Legend Axeo Cartridges

I love my Super Shox and they are supposed to be coming out with a fork cartridge kit this summer. I don't know if I can stand these forks any longer. Does anyone have any first hand experience with the Legend Axeo's.

I was thinking of the Axeo fronts for an upgrade this winter but have to hold out a little longer due to the funds running low. If SS is supposed to be coming up with a front set up, I would wait it out to see what they produce. Just my .02. Where did you hear of the SS front end this summer?

I have had my Legend Axeo and Revo-A suspension installed in my bike for over a year now. About 4,500miles and no regrets. This bike rides a lot better than stock. I would recommend without reservation. I purchased through one of the forum sponsors and got a great deal on the suspension and some savings on the shipping too.

That is my concern that SS will be delayed. I don't want to ride the whole season on the mongoose bmx forks that come on the bike. Waiting for something that is scheduled for "mid-summer" as the release date. I'll probably go with the legends. Anybody know of a great deal? Lowest I have seen is phat performance at $699.

I spoke at great length with SS last Spring and they told me then...."by the end of the season"......then I saw them at a show again in Aug and they said "maybe next year" - Its tough as it is completely out of their wheel house coming from their 4 wheel roots......but ya never know

Me......keep your options open and if a deal presents itself, take it - I was VERY close to the SS Rear and Legends Front ..........and then I spoke with Smarty............

morningwood , just love the name The good thing is you have several options. I have SS rear & monotubes front, got the SS for $600 & had Amazon points so used them on Progressive monotubes. I'm very happy with this setup but i'm sure there's better combos out there like Ohlins etc. it all depends how deep your pockets & what your needs are. My neighbor has SS rear & is also waiting for them to come out with fronts.
