1. The most important thing about buying a new bike is to make sure it fits. The only way you'll know if the bike is right for you is to size up the bike and make sure that the bike's geometry matches your body's geometry. Ask questions and do some research.

2. If possible, try to find a shop that will let you demo the bike on real dirt. Five minutes in a parking lot won't cut it. You wouldn't buy a car without a real world test drive, and a bike should be no different.
3. Don't belive the hype. Just because your favorite rider or best friend rides a certain bike, that doesn't mean that's the best one for you. Have an open mind and be realistic about your needs and ability.

    All Cannondale mountain bikes has 1.5" head tube. That should get you started. Any reason why only 1.5"?

    Are you sure it's not tapered 1.1/8"to1.5" not just 1.5". I don't think reba comes in 1.5". If so please post the link.

    K then, since it's a Reba I guess you are looking for XC or trail bike 120mm rear travel or less.

    Here's the thing you gave very little info to help you. How about you tell us what Reba do you have or getting, there are available in 3 different wheel sizes and travel, and what kind of riding you plan to do with this fork and your budget too. We'll help you narrow things donw.

    How about this On-One Carbon 456 Frame, hope it's in your budget. If you are looking for dual suspension then it should start around $1000
