USE Sub Fork

   Good to see some competition for the lefty! This fork is designed to resist dive, which is when the fork compresses when you hit the brakes. Does it work? Reviews are in and they are good!

USE Sub 
   The front wheel actually moves forward as the suspension works, so the geometry is supposed to be less effected by the compression of the fork. This should result in more predictable handling.

Mounted up

   Disadvantages? There are only a couple - price tag, at about $1200 it isn't cheap. And while performance under braking is supposed to be better than a standard fork, performance when not braking is said to suffer. Apparently USE has some really good customer support, and there's even a rumor of free parts upgrades for the life of the fork (!)
