    no more 115mm Reba?

    I'm shopping around for forks and recall all the intial marketing buzz about the Reba being "designed around a sweet spot of 115 mm of travel." But looking on the Rock Shox web site, it looks as though the current Reba only goes to 100. Do I have to find an older Reba if I want the 115mm of travel?

    They are still around

    I recently picked up an 05 SL with U-turn after long debate since my 00 Z-1 had such longevity; I couldn't kill it.
    Now I ask 'why did I wait so long?'. Aside from the obvious weight saving, it's cool to reach down and increase travel to 115 for an extended steep descent. I really only need 100mm otherwise. It is about 6 turns on the knob at the top of the crown.
    I am still experimenting with floodgate, pos/neg air pressure, comp adj and travel length. It is all good.
    Do a search on froogle or comparison pricing to find the old models.

    I've read about people with 2006 model 115mm Rebas but they may have been OEM. You might give SRAM a call to confirm.

    Best bet is an '05 model if you're looking at the "straight" travel models, I think the U-Turn versions still go from 85-115mm though.
