I ride an 04 Turner Burner with a Fox 100X. I like it's sharp handling but at times the fork can feel alittle harsh. The fork with enduro seals(a must) has been good to me but I wonder if the 100RLT would make a better trail fork without sacrificing the sharp handling and balanced ride when mated to the rear Manitou SPV shock.

I've never been impressed with the Fox Float forks. The Floats I've ridden have all seemed super progressive and harsh deep in their travel. They ride far different than the Talas and Vanilla lines.

Right now, I'm riding a Reba SL on my XCE and I've been really impressed. I beat on it in Moab trying to keep up with the Homers on their 6-Packs with Z1's and it handled it better than I could have imagined. The cool thing is experimenting with the compression knob and floodgate settings. You can essentially make it feel like a 100x, and then with a flip of the compression knob make it feel better than a RLT would ever feel.

Of course, you would have a slight weight penalty compared to the RLT, but IMHO the Reba's ride quality and versatility more than makes up for the slight weight difference.

I've had 2 F100X forks, a Talas rlc 125 and several other Fox forks. That said, the 05/06 Reba Team with poploc adjust I have now beats them all in every category. I'm almost anti-rs but their new sram-owned products are great. I sold my last 100X for the Reba Team.
