all my dreams of buying a new bike this year have been dashed since I have to buy a car now.:madman:

So it looks like I'm slowly upgrading, first thing to go is the fork. Don't have the money for a Fox so which would you want?

Reba Race or R7 Platinum? they are both priced about the same that I've seen, right in the $350 range.

almost all cross country, single track kinda stuff. Looking for 100mm, the bike is a Schwinn Mesa, decent frame, pretty burly for my clyde butt but the components are lacking. I'll just upgrade as I wear things out but I know I need a different fork.

Reba

Longer history behind it, and most of it very positive. 32mm stanchions, which are a plus for clydes.

Thanks Bob,

I guess I didn't really think of the track record, the R7's are fairly new aren't they? Do the thicker stancions really make that much of a difference?
