    Need help deciding between '08 or '09 Reba Race Dual Air

    Hi all. I am in the market to purchase a Rockshox Reba shock and need help deciding between the '08 or '09 race dual air shock. I can get either shock for the same price but am unsure if the '09 offers anything better than the '08. The first thing I noticed is the '09 is post mount vs. the '08 being IS. From what I have read on the forums the IS mount system is preffered over post mount. Is there anything else I should know? Any major differences? Thanks in advance for any help.
