I will venture a guess that you might be too heavy for the WB fluid series of forks. At 265, I felt like I sometimes overpowered the fork (I had a 135). But give Darek @ WB a call and see what he thinks.

I'd go with the Fox F29, but again a call to Fox would be in order. I'm guessing you want an 80mm.

I'm 275 and I personally love the Reba 29 and the Fox F29. Both are equally great forks.
You dont find flex issues with the Reba do you?? Im contemplating this fork simple because of the Lockout mode. If Fox had the lockout switch, It would be mine.

As a big guy myself, I would highly recommend a Thru Axle fork for torsional rigidity; I really really like it when the wheel immediately goes the direction that you turn the handelbars. :D :thumbsup:

TA means White Bros. or Manitou Absolute for now.
