    Another "forking" question

    I am done with my WB Fluid 110. I have never been happy with the feel. This is after three years of constant "fiddling" and now after another fluid change, I will sell it. I am about 200 lbs. and ride mostly technical singletrack (rooty, rocky, short steep climbs and drops). I am considering the following forks for my Dillinger: (they are all new)
    2009 Fox F-29 120 mm $566 (I have this same fork on my '09 RIP and love it)
    2009 Reba SL 100 mm $400 (Have only a short ride on a 2010 Team, not long enough to help)
    2009 Race $480, if the only diff. is pushlock, I'll pass.
    2009 Team $542, again, don't know why it is more money.
    2010 Manitou Minute 100mm $450, supposedly redesigned, never ridden, don't know anything about it.

    Any constructive help is appreciated. I am a big fan of Fox forks, just don't know if it is worth the extra coin.

    And there is your answer. I've got a Dillenger and I'm running a Fox @ 100mm. It matches up really well.

    I think I know it is the answer, but I would really like to save some coin. My RIP is my primary ride and the Dillinger is more for fun. I just want something with a more plush feel. Don't need a lot of bells and whistles.

    Well.... I have a preference for Fox as well but tried an 09' Reba Team and it was a very nice Fork- very close to my 09' fox F29 RLC 120 but once you get to such a close price comparison the Reba's Value diminishes a bit-

    For your use the REBA SL sounds like it is the way to go it is adjustable from 80-120 by fiddling with the internal spacers, though 120 with no T/A is pushing that fork IMO- the Fox 120 has a bit beefier build compared to the 80/100mm F29 versions from what I have researched vs the Reba which does not differ (QR specific anyway) -
    I Just wish I could ride more!

    Odd - my Fluid 110 has been money for me here in South Florida. But, since you want a change - hard to go wrong with the Fox or new Reba. Since you're familiar with the Fox - I'd go for that.

    It's hard to describe. The fork is reliable and plenty stiff. It just has not been even close to having a similar ride to any of my fox forks.
