Great review, it's clear that its a fun, user friendly fork, that can perform exceptionally well! To be fair, I do think the three position compression adjustment does have its place, just not with all riders. I find that riding a raked out 29er, having the ability to provide a little more rigidity when climbing or pedaling xc-esque terrain is extremely beneficial. It's a feature that I use personally all the time. That said, I think that it's non-essential on most bikes, but even on bikes where it does provide a benefit it's up to personal preference.
