    Fork Selection 2007 EX 7

    Hello all,

    I recently got a frame replacement/upgrade from trek to the 2007 EX7 frame from my 2006 EX7. I have had the same front fork a Reba Race for almost three seasons now, it is getting a little worse for wear so I am looking to replace it.

    I like the travel on the Reba being at 115 mm and am wondering what people would recommend in the 100 - 120 mm range for the 2007 Trek Fuel EX 7 frame, I am considering the fox float but just wondering if there is anything else out there.

    In terms of what I want on the fork, I would appreciate external height adjustment and a lockout.

    Thanks in Advance

    Only fork I can say for sure that has height adjustment (travel) is the Talas...

    My EX8 came with an F130RL, (no adjustment) but is a great fork nonetheless and since my bike is the same geometry as yours, the Talas could be what you are looking for.. 100/120/140 or something like that. Its definitely the right size fork for that frame.

    if you're looking to lighten up your rig, get one of the many SID model forks out there. Otherwise, I'd go with FOX if weight isn't a priority

    I am actually looking at the 2008 Fox 32 F120 RLC, it is new this year obviously, it has the lock out and all of the other features I am looking for but it is fixed height at 120 mm, which is pretty close to what I leave the Reba at (115mm). It is also pretty light at a reported 3.56 lbs.

    Any thoughts or user reviews on this fork?

    Cheers
