- Revs vs Rebas @120mm 29er
good point ‘spose I could!
Reba 1565grams, Revs 1796 grams (both 29er, RL, tapered, QR). Just over half a pound difference.Not dramatic but in a place where a bit of weight loss is handy.
Let me rephrase the question. At 120mm, what’s the benefit of a Rev over the equivalent spec’d Reba?
If I know I don’t need 140mm, should I look for a Rev to Reba swapsie?Posted 4 years agoMrTallMember
I switched from 120mm Reba’s to 130mm Revs and find them much better.Posted 4 years ago
Biggest difference for me is the increased tyre clearance with the Revs which means I can run bigger tyres without the dreaded tyre rub that seems the norm with all the RS 29er maxle Reba forks I own.
Plus the Revs just seem slightly plusher but that may be in my head.jairajSubscriber
The Rebas will be about 200g lighter and a bit more flexier. The Revs will also have better damping and internal components. The Reba is basically a SID with cheaper internals to keep the cost down.
I have a 26″ Rev and SID (same chassis as the Reba) and yes when the trail gets rough you can feel a bit of flex going on but its never really enough to distract me from what I’m doing. It’s not like it wobbles about like jelly.
I’m also quite a heavy rider and been riding the bike quite aggressively. If you are a lighter rider or have a smoother style then you probably wouldn’t notice much.Posted 4 years ago
