First ride impressions on the MRP Ribbon Coil are an enthusiastic two thumbs up! Ordered over the phone and talked to a real person. Always a plus. The fork arrived as ordered, finish and detail are great. The "Army green" stickers are a little less Army than I recall, but if I dwelled on looks I wouldn't have bought a fork with a forward-facing brace. I took the fork for a test ride down the overly familiar Brown-El P so I could judge the performance against known features. This fork is a beast. Fully an inch or more longer than my Fox 32, which is dwarfed by the 35mm stanchions and boost-sized crown. The 46mm offset puts the wheel out in front, making the bike into a Raiders QB, Stabler. The initial smoothness was matched by the stiffness and my climb up to the saddle was an adventure of rock-smashing and rut crossing. Once the downhill started, the real fun began. The suppleness though the small to mid sized junk is impressive. Rebound is set fast and predictable. Backed off a little on the Ramp control and the LSC stayed at + 4 clicks. Didn't get the full 140mm today but 130 ain't bad... Settings from the factory. I'm currently at +5 Ramp, +4 LSC, +10 rebound, no preload Finished the ride with a hit-and-run, forearm shiver into an oak tree. Didn't crash, didn't stop, didn't exchange insurance. Don't judge me.... No watches were hurt during this excursion.
