    reba u-turn 85-115 mm for 03 ETSX?

    het all,
    have gotten good feedback here and was hoping to get more on this question: how do you all think the 2003 etsx (designed around a 100mm fork) matches up with the reba u-turn?

    i was thinking that the three travel seetings in the rear would match up well with 85 mm, 100 mm, and 115 mm settings (and everything in between) of the reba.

    i was going to give my wife wife my minute 1 (100 - 130mm) for her 2003 etsx while i bought the zoke all mountain for my 575, but manitou does not make a minute 1 spring kit soft enough for her 110 lbs. now she's left wanting a new fork, so i'm wondering what you guys think of the reba.

    thanks,
    ant

    The '04 ETSX 50&70 shipped with the Fox Talas with 85-125mm travel to match the 3.5/4/4.5 rear travel, there's very minor differences in geometry between 03 and 04. The REBA U-turn should be a pretty good match, it's about the same weight as the Talas and has 32mm stanchions as well.
