Weakness:

I think...no.

I 've used this fork for not a short time.For my weight(about 58kg),I think this fork has done excellent job.It has some advantage:
1.Light.The fork I've get is 300g uncut.Amazing weight and corresponds to the claim weight(I'm a weightweenie too)
2.Stiff(At least for me).While riding my bike(Felt 05 CA1)with this fork,the handling never disappoint me.When I need to turn,it never soften,it just there.
When last time I do a longterm travel,I meet several conditions,it just hands on.
3.great ability to absorb shock.I thinkI can feel the road I've ridden,but it never give me negative feedback-'cause it's comfortable enough.
4.price.I get a really good price,initially the price is not an advantage to be consider,but trust me,no matter how much do you pay for this fork,it's worthy.

Actually I use this fork for about 10000miles,and it stands like new.

Strength:

- Light. 297 grams uncut (without brake bolt)
- wide "shoulders" butt nicely with the Cervelo. The "line" between the fork and headtube seems seamless
- handling is fantastic
- MSRP and weight are very competitive

Weakness:

- none

I am test riding this fork for a review. This fork is a revelation; the handling is superb. I'm using this on a Cervelo R3 that came with an already excellent (though no longer made) True Temper Sub 3. The Ritchey fork has an amazing dampening quality; it smooths out bumps. But at the same time provides continuous feedback. You can really feel the road. There is some flex which is wonderful--you can feel the turns.
By far the best fork I've ever used.
