I have been reading the threads and the Rockshox Reba SL looks to be highly recommended. I have an 03 rockhopper disc with original forks. I do a mixture of trails, singletrack and need something stiffer than the manitou elites. I weigh 250lbs+ & need something stiff with plenty adjustment, hence the air fork appeals to me. Opnions appreciated before I place the order. Wheelworld.com doing them at a good price, any other sites I should be looking at for a good deal?

Well I can't say for your weight category (I'm only around 180lbs) but my REBA SL has served me excellent over the 9 months and 2000+ miles I've had it. Read in the Clydes forum that there's lots of big lads riding them and they are very happy- go check over there.

I've been looking at this fork for about a month and will probably get it here soon. Wheelworld and Pricepoint are the cheapest. It would come down to the s/h as to which one is the best price. I've been keeping an eye on ebay too and there hasn't been too many on there either. It's either the reba sl or skareb for me, but I'm leaning heavily towards the reba. I'm pretty sure you won't go wrong with it.

having recently changed from a Manitou Skareb platinum to a Reba SL with U-turn, i can highly recommend the Reba. significant improvement in damping and ease of setup, and seems noticably stiffer to me (with disc brakes).

i'm 150lbs and ride an S-Works HT.
