    Help me choose: Pace RC29 or Reba

    I have been offered two used forks for my first 29er build. The first is a nearly brand new carbon Pace RC29 100mm, second is a Rock Shox Reba that "is a few years old but in good shape. Older, light grey model". I believe it is a 2010 model but waiting to confirm that.

    Price isn't that different on them. I like the bling and the new condition on the Pace, but the RS has been around the block and has a good reputation.

    I weigh ~165lbs.
    This bike will be for everything from bike paths to relatively technical single track... Nothing crazy. Will also see some time hopping curbs as an occasional city commuter, but will not be locked up outside.

    Well that's what makes it tricky... The Pace is near new with only a few rides on it. The RS is used.

    I'm waffling. A buddy works at a shop and can help me do any service the forks need and can order me most stuff at wholesale so not too worried about that....
