Alternative 120mm fork to fox ?? your thoughts.
Yep, Reba Team RLT ti black box is a great fork, every bit as good as a Fox overall. Still not quite as well contolled in compression (as a FIT 120) when it gets nasty or under really hard cornering, but a nicer spring progression, more tuneable at home and easier to look after / obtain in the first place. Very well rated, I like them a lot.Posted 6 years agoScienceofficerMember
I’ve a 120mm Reba SL – 2009 I think. Its a pretty good fork and the Moco is better than on my old Pike.
I used to think it was pretty much as good as it gets for a fork of that type, but I’ve recently retrofitted TPC+ to an old Manitou Nixon and that makes the Reba feel like its broken. The difference (Apart from full shim controlled rebound and compression – unlike moco) is the dual flow circuit/floating piston. For this reason, I’m thinking that black box moco (which has dual flow circuits) will be markedly better.Posted 6 years agobikewhispererMember
I have some 2009 Reba Teams and Reba Races, both set to 120mm.. Strangely they both cost the same from on-one.
The Teams are considerably more stable in braking and when chucking my weight around.. They feel more invisible in use, if that makes sense. They’re a piece of piss to service too. I can’t really compare them to foxes as I’ve never owned a pair.. I preferred the idea of having some forks which are actually sealed.Posted 6 years ago
