I really wanted some of the Reba XX team forks with Hydraulic lockout – but Fischer refuse to import them from the states in 29er size! So the Rockshock Reba dual Air arrived and before fitting them I decided to fit them I replaced the King headset with a Hope unit. The King had already shown to mark the carbon steerer of the Niner forks and I’m not waiting untill they are wrecked. The hope with a split lower crown race and the more secure clamp ring is a perfect British replacement. Hey I get to colour integrate in red, and its lighter at 93 g. I used the std topcap plug for now.
The forks weigh in at 1763 g with the full steerer length (weighed like this to compare with other makes) which is not as light as Fox or DTSwiss, but both these makes for 2010 seem to be really harsh over the small stuff to me.
In the box is a nice pump, a full set of alternative gold stickers, but the lack of set up manual is a serious omission, and the website dosen’t help.
