    Which lightweight 100mm 29er fork?

    Running a Lynskey Ridgeline 29SL singlespeed rigid with a carbon fork at the moment, but it's beating me up. Thought I'd try a suspension fork but don't want to give up too much weight advantage - any suggestions?? (tapered steerer)

    Manitou TP, 2012 dual air Reba, 2014 SID---
    "New for 2014, the DIG Valve has independent low-speed and high-speed compression settings, as well as a aluminum rebound shaft for a bit of weight loss over the old system. It's retrofittable to previous models, and can make a huge difference in the performance of a fork."
    Maybe this would help a 2013 solo air Reba.

    What was wrong with the 2013 solo air Reba? (I see they are going cheap at CRC)

    Found a half price offer on a 2013 SID XX World Cup - very light at 1572g (including maxle). Thoughts?

    Light but only solo air, so like the Reba your tuning options have been dumbed down over the 2012 model.
    But 2014 parts are coming.
    The new DIG valve is backwards compatible for improved low and high speed compression tuning.
    The price also seems high.
