... Are they any good?

100mm travel we're talking here...

I welcome your input.

I'm running a pair of Reba 29 RLT's with a 15mm Maxle and so far I cannot fault them.
All the Reba range get fantastic reviews. :wink:

Yes, they are!
In the last few years I have run mainly Maguras, which have generally been excellent,, but hard to find service parts for. I've tried Fox, which are so eassy to service but rubbish in use, and I've had one pair of Rebas which came on my Curtlo. They are brilliant! Every part needed to service them is available from TF tuned, anongst others. They have a lovely, easily adjusted action and are pretty stiff. Light too at 1500g for the SLs.

Yes they are good.

Had a pair from 2007 with 100mm and just sold them on to be replaced by 120mm and 15mm maxle.

Light, tough, tuneable easy to service.

Some issues around the moco leaking but can be sorted.

I have [s]two[/s] three pairs.

One 100mm travel Team edition with the blackbox damping the others 120mm, 20mm Maxle again with black box damping.

Edit: Oh and some 29er ones :oops:

I think they are a very good fork, slightly heavier than Sids but vastly stiffer.

Easy to work on too

Do you need a pair as I might be selling my 100mm Team forks ......
