    Rockhopper 05 Fork - recommendations???

    Hi All,
    I have a 2005 rockhopper which I love , however the seal on the left stansion keep coming away ( Manitou Axel ). Given that teh LBS cant fix it adn Manitou dont have UK support for spares, I thought about an upgrade.
    Any Ideas on fork Height etc ??
    I am thinking either a Rockshox revelation coil 85-130mm
    Reba SL 100mm
    Recon 351 u turn 85-130mm

    or as a cheap option the Mazzocci MX pro

    I dont really know the difference between the Rockshox range (even after looking at the website..

    Any Suggestions ??

    I have the Reba SL on my '08 FSRxc and I think it's a pretty decent fork. I'm 13 years old, and an air fork is much better for me becuase I weight less than an adult so I can just drop the pressure a little. It is perfect for XC riding (quite plush for a 100mm travel fork) and will even take some of the small jumps and drop offs (about 50-80cm) I do without a sound.
