I can only speak for the forks I have used and I would suggest ( if you can find) fox vanilla the older models can be set at 100mm. I weigh the same and my vanilla bobs very little. It does not have a platform but with the proper spring it works well with my HT. I recently rode a bike wike with a marz mx comp. the fork felt plush but bobbed and had TONS of brake dive. The rock Shox forks with motion control would be a good option. i will probobley try one on my nest bike, if the vanilla 140 mm is too much travel.
If money is no object, the Fox F100X is an incredible fork that is specifically designed to prevent bobbing. I love mine. I have it set up so that it's practically rigid until I hit some rocks and then its smooth as butter. Fortunately I got a deal on it when I got a new bike, otherwise it would be out of my league.
However, the Reba is a big part of a quickly rebuilding Rock Shox reputation.
