Heard Sept. as well....

reba's got my interest...I'm debating U-turn or not. I'll slap it on a Tracer w/ 4.5 inches rear travel.....The reba should compliment it nicely.

I got an '02 Duke Race 80mm now, which has been great, but it's a bit harsh. I was hoping to get more travel, but my frame was designed for an 80mm fork. I don't wanna get something that ruins the nimble geometery of the frame, and is so tall it slackens my head angle too much. I figure with the Reba with U-Turn, I get adjustable travel, pseudo SPV with a control from the bars, and a wide range of tweakability... not to mention, it can make it over to my next frame. As long as it doesn't cost a zillion dollars, it looks like a good bet. I'm gonna try it first, of course.

I'm going the...

Dual Air Reba- When it gets here of course; I'm looking at Importing one from the USA (to Australia) so I can get my hands one one earlier, and so it costs alot less :p

Dual Air: Because I've had adjustable travel forks before (Psylo SL) and it's not really something I use much, plus my bike is set up well with 100mm on the front. :D

115mm travel rules!

The Reba is the bomb! I have been running this fork since April, love it.
TRUTH specs have been changed to allow fork use of up to 115mm travel.
Nooner

Has the geometry or build of the Truth changed or is it just whats allowed per se that has changed?

What's the axle-crown length of this fork???

I don't know about the Reba, but I was kinda surprised to see a Pike on a bike being ridden on Slickrock in Moab by a guy that looked a lot like Greg Herbold. No, the guy was too young (I think) to be Herbold, and I wished I had gone over an talked to the guy about the fork. I'm only mentioning this because I guess there are prototypes or preproduction models being run and tested well before consumer release. Maybe the same thing happened with the Reba.

But tie for a new fork. I am willing to jump boats and go with aa rockshock "first one I have ever had" if the reba is as good as they say it is. manitou has has gone off there rocker with there new fork prices. Reba Team Pla U , or Manitou Min 2 ? Could make for a good shootout

Probably a RS guy from here in the Springs, I've seen both models on the trails here and got to ride the Pike back in June, it felt the same as my Vanilla.
