Reba or Sid?
What is the general thinking for a fork for a race 1st/ trail 2nd bike? Rockshox Reba team or Sid team?
Obviously there is a weight difference with the Sid straight away but are there any other other advantages?
Can anyone comment on performance?

Merlin have the Reba @ £256 at the moment 😀Posted 7 years ago
The SID also requires more TLC.
Really? Why do you say that?
The current SID is tougher than the older Reba, unless you're riding a lot of >3ft drops and generally riding like an oaf then they'll be fine. If you value the steering precision over the weight, then get the Reba.Posted 7 years agojojoA1Member
Jeez, going from pikes you'll really notice a difference in flex and directness through lumpy stuff and corners with either of those, in my opinion. (not that the SIDS are 'that' flexy, just in comparison to Pikes) I went from old Revs with adjustable travel to new SIDs on my race bike and it took some getting used to. I have got used to and like the SIDs now as they've really lightened the bike up and made it more 'racey' compared to when I had the Revs on and I still coped with the techy descents at the Alastair Lees TT at Innerliethen.Posted 7 years ago

Well, seeing as there is only 5ml of oil in the lowers rather than the 15 ml of Rebas I'm inclined to service them more often.Posted 7 years ago
