race bike as in XC race? how much do you weigh? Both forks are fine...i just put a supposed POS 2008 Reba on a bike and I have no worries about it as I am only 175 lbs and its for XC duty. Unless you are a typical 29er phat azz and/or plan to truly do more than XC duty it dont matter none. The poploc is a sweet feature IMHO if you like to stand as well. Of course the 2009 Reba makes this less of a debate but even 2008s are fine for XC duty as far as i am concerned

I have an '07 Reba that is perfectly well suited for XC riding. Granted, that's with a stiff wheel (I9) and axle (DT RWS). The damping is sufficient and can be improved with a little PUSH love. As of today, I have Reba Team 120 with the 20mm axle on the way. Can't wait to compare the two.

Both are fantastic forks, but might I suggest you roll on over to JensonUSA and pcik up one of the last manitou Minute 100s with TA for $268. It'll save you a ton of cash which you can then spend on other components and it'll be super stiff.

Building a Redline D660 race bike next season am pretty confused on which fork to purchase the reba race or team or the fox f 29 100. Please help me finish my bike.

I was dead set on swapping my Reba SL on my stumpjumper out for a fox, i have just always been a fox shox guy, but i have to say i love the Reba, i weigh in at 175lbs and its i just a great fork, i actually wish my superfly came with reba instead of the fox, if it wasent a G2 fork, i would have a Reba on it.

:lol: :smilewinkgrin:

I'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed this. However; I'm 6'2" 165Ibs so the stereotype doesn't always ring true. Heck if I were over 200Ibs a 26 inch wheeled bike just wouldn't make sense.

2 F29's and no problems here. an 80 and a 100. never had an issue with the lockout either. I also have the DT 9mm Thru Bolt on both wheelsets so that might also add stability to the setup. Can't argue with a Fox ride.

I just recently changed from an 08 Manitou Minute 29 to a Fox F29RLC , wow what a difference. The Fox soaks up the trail like its nothing, plants in the corners , and softens landings.. I ride SS and this fork has very little bob.. I have ridden Reba on other bikes though a nice fork I still prefer the Fox.. Advantage on a reba 29 I guess would be the remote lock out..
