    Single speed suspension fork options

    Finally got things sorted out with headset sizes on my Carve. In the mean time I missed out on the fork I was going to pick up (manitou marvel expert). So I have a couple new options to choose from

    1) new white brothers magic 29 100mm
    2) used manitou tower expert 100mm
    3) new manitou tower ltd 80mm
    4) rock shox 30 tk gold
    5) wait for a reba usedin my price range

    Look at X-Fusion Slide. Very reasonable in price and internally adjustable 80-120mm. I've been running one for a bit over two years with zero problems. Picked up up of ebay for $280 delivered. They may be a bit more now.

    I picked up a new Manitou Marvel Comp 120 for my SS recently. My FS bike has a Reba on it. The Manitou is more adjustable and rides better. Short answer: Don't bother with the Reba. There's much better stuff out there that costs less.

    Looked at the x-fusions after you suggested it. Sadly they are about $75-100 more than what I want to spend and I did not see any in 9mm QR configuration.

    So the reba isn't that great?

    What about new and slightly lower end units vs. used and slightly higher end stuff?

    My Reba works just fine. Does what I need it to do with the lockout and gate control.
    Too Many .

    I read some guys going up to 120mm, but I am afraid that would jack up geo and change how the bike rides too much.

    I donno about going down to 80mm either.

    Per the big S, I was informed I could run up to a 110mm fork without issue.

    I was very happy with the Tower Pro 120 once I installed the X Firm spring.

    Hell - I can sell mine

    29er
    100mm
    kashima
    15mm thru
    1.25 straight steerer
    steerer length I'd have to check (it's pretty long)

    has about 15 hours on it

    Bought back in late 2011 or 2012 (i'll double check)

    would ask around $400

    If interested I'll buy an ad here then sell to you

    Pic is the fork on my bike (I prefer rigid, that's why low use)
