    Tora Race or Reba Race

    So I bought a Reba cuz I thought I'd be building up something and found a good deal on it. But then I also found a good deal on a Salsa Mamasita equipped with the Tora Race fork. Now I have two forks. My question is whether there is significant difference in performance between the two forks or is weight the only real issue? Which would you keep and which would you sell? Thanks!

    Pm'd you Tailwaters! Max, it totally depends what you're looking for in a fork. The Tora is tough to beat for the price, you'll get more in resale for the Reba. The Tora is a bit heavier, but no much....tough call, sort of. Which fork matches better?

    congratulations on the Mamasita I have one also, I have had a few of both the reba & tora on my wifes bike she has a Tora & I had one a few years back,The tora fork is heavy and I don't think it's as smooth.. I am sure there is more to it then I know as far as internals of the forks. just try them both out. and I do have the Reba race for my Mamasita, I'm thinking of selling my bike with the carbon Niner fork and keeping the Reba for my wifes bike..

    Thanks for the replies. I just put the Reba on the Mamasita:

    And put the Tora on classifieds!
    Rock Shox Tora Race Fork 29er | eBay
    If you actually want the fork, I'd give you a deal since the lack of ebay fees.

    BTW, I paid $700 for the Mama and $200 for the Reba.
