Also keep in mind with the Reba, when it needs service, Push will most likely be working on them, and you will be able to get it upgraded as well.Call_me_Clyde said:I'm a huge Marzocchi fan, don't get me wrong. I currently have an '04 Marathon S on my bike and I love it. Fact of the matter is that by most people's accounts, RS hit a home run with the Reba. If it were my money, I'd spend the $200 on something else. If there is something about the Marathon XC in it's features and adjustability that you have to have over the Reba, that's a different story.
Wow, I can't even believe you were entertaining the thought of not keeping the REBA I'll guess it's a Trance2 you're getting. I own a Trance3 (now at T2 specs) and I got the REBA SL for mine after some serious recomendations from happy riders almost 9 months ago and love it on the Trance. What you might consider doing is removing the spacer in the REBA which it comes with to make the travel go to 115mm.sramski said:I am buying a Trance and wanted opinions on getting a "credit" for the Reba and putting on a Marathon XC. Is it worth the 200.00 expense?
have you tweaked the compression and / or floodgate setting?kneecap said:I'm considering going the other way, reba to marathon xc. I simply cannot get my reba sl to pick up the small trail stuff. It just hammers my wrists on fast rocky surfaces, & I've tried a multitude of air pressure settings, both pos, & neg. It feels overly progressive & doesn't use the last maybe 3/4" travel despite different settings.
I'm going to do an oil change this weekend, maybe that'll help.
What's your exact settings:kneecap said:I've turned the floodgate to almost all the way off, so that when it's engaged it blows off easily. But I hardly ever use that function anyway, I fun the compression full soft.
I reset pressures from a thread last week, helped a little, but I'm at a loss at this point. This fork seems too progressive, ramps up too quickly, & like I said previously, I have to drop the pos psi waaay lo to get full travel & it pounds me over fast rough terain. I'm bouncing all over the place, maybe scram's air forks arn't for lighter riders.....
Wish "Push" would gear up for this fork soon.
