    Deal on a good 29er fork?

    Just scored a good deal on a new Highball and need would like to get the rest or the build together on a budget.

    Looking for a 120mm fork with a 15mm or 20mm thru-axle. Tapered steerer is preferred but straight 1 1/8" steerer is also fine. Looking for mid-to-upper quality and 4lbs or under in weight.

    Thanks in advance!

    Thanks for the links. I'll have to keep the Tower Pro on my short list. I'm not very keen on Manitou given I had problems with 2 out of the 3 Manitou forksI've owned previously (Manitou Minute and 2 Sherman Firefly's). It's been a while so maybe their quality has improved.

    I missed the RS Reba 29er on sale at Jenson and would love to find a deal on a Fox F29. Any others I should be thinking about?

    See what bikerbob can get you. He did a smokin deal on my '12 reba, but they are 100mm max. You could go with revelation for 120.

    Something I came across recently - you can get a white brothers loop from universal cycles for $606 with their vip15 discount code and free shipping. They are available anywhere from 80mm to 140mm.

    I'm in the same boat - I missed a fork sale (didn't look at the deals forum, doh!) and am looking for a good 29er fork.

    I have a Specialized Carve with an 80mm fork right now. I know that 100mm can be installed on it without issues. Would there be a problem with 120mm Manitou?

    Thanks.

    That's a good deal, thanks! Why would you need an axle, if you already have one on your existing fork? Or am I missing something?
