    I have not, but I did consider putting one on my Jekyll, so I will bore you with my thoughts on it.

    Which Sherman? They range all the way up to 170mm, which would be a bit excessive in my opinion. If you use a model with 130mm of travel it would compliment the rear suspension well. Shermans are very beefy forks and probably overkill for a Jekyll frame, but there is certainly a coolness factor and you will never have to worry about your fork taking abuse. A Firefly is relatively light and offers 130mm; I almost bought a 2003 Firefly. Flicks are a little heavier, but less expensive as well. I really think any other Sherman is just too much for a Jekyll, even though it does have a 1.5" head tube.
