    It looks exactly like the one on the fisher website....no changes to the spec.

    It looks really nice. The frame is a little chunky for my tastes, and I don't particularily care for the externally butted tubes, but the dropouts look really good. They also got rid of the racks mounts on the seatstays, which is kinda cool.

    The ebb appears to be proprietary, which is kinda concerning. I hope it's the same size as a bushnell, just incase it flops.

    The wheels are really nice looking.

    The fork is at least one leg air.....not sure about other adjustments.

    The bike is long and low....seemed longer and lower than other fishers even.

    Hope that helps.

    I lost interest in the Rig when they added the Reba.

    Why not offer it as an option and leave the rigid fork as standard.

    Grr

    You can always sell the Reba, get a sweet custom rigid fork and end up with some spare beer money. I, too, totally lusted for the idea of a long&light&smooth alu fork though. Let alone if they had given it some 45mm of rake, oh momma!
    Perhaps they'll manage to redesign the fork and offer it aftermarket later on.

    Before I never believed that, but within the rigid category there's smooth and harsh.
