    Fork for 29er

    Hello from Greece. I want to change the fork of my bicycle (29er). I don’t want to pay more than 350€. I found these:
    1)
    ROCKSHOX 2013 Reba RLT 100mm 29" Solo air Axle 9mm Disc 1 1/8 Pushlock Black/Silver (00.4018.232.001) RCZ Bike Shop
    2)
    Rock Shox Revelation RL 29" Dual Air 1.5" Taper 2012 | Buy Online | ChainReactionCycles.com
    3)
    Rock Shox Recon Gold TK Solo Air Forks 29" 2011 | Buy Online | ChainReactionCycles.com
    Which one to choose. I go for a ride 1-2 times a week. If someone has a different opinion for other forks (350€ max) I will be glad to hear it.

    The Reba is worlds better than the recon. But IMHO I would go with a fox...

    Between Reba Solo Air and RL Dual Air?? The price is almost the same.Which one is better for "enthusiastic new rider"...?
    The Fox forks is very expensive for me.

    Between Dual vs Solo, personally I think I have 1/2 a brain and know how I like my fork set up and therfor like the Dual air where I can tune its characteristics to my liking, not some engineer thinking he knows what I should like with the Solo option.
    Definitely Reba over Recon or the Rev, unless your bike has a longer than 100mm fork.

    Get the Reba or Rev if you can afford it over the recon. Terrain, your bike frame and riding style will determine which one you should get.

    I would go reba.
    With thru axle (maxle lite). Tapered. (If your frame has a tapered headtube.)
    Best choice for the money.
    Dual air is nice if you like to optimize the characteristics of your fork.
    Have you already been on ebay?
    Maybe you find someone who sells his new fox fork that was removed from a new bike. (not stolen ^^)
    Price should be around 350€ in europe.
