Though I've only had it for a week I am so impressed with the unbelievable performance of this fork. It has dropped a kilogram from my ST Suntour XCR and performs much better. The one issue is making sure it is compatible with your bike as I had to buy a new headset and wheel. The amount you can customise this component is exceptional with rebound compression and air pressure, although for me the air pressure graph made it too soft, so I would put a bit extra in.
Had these about a month and rode for just over 220km. A great step up from the springers that came as stock with my bike.
Nice plush ride and enough adjustment for most riders. Fairly rigid - and much more progressive than previous set. Good enough to reduce the chatter over small / medium rocks - pretty decent over tougher terrain - although prepare to bottom out on more extreme stuff - only to be expected with 100mm travel.
Easy to fit and as mentioned - decent rebound and sag adjustment.
The difference in ride quality has been an eye opener and has helped my confidence - and my skills improve - so much so I fancy something with more travel - which might mean a new bike! ! ! !.
Downsides - no pump or star nut in the box - so factor in with the price.
Overall - a good piece of kit and well priced.
Delivery and service from Merlin (first time I've purchased from them) was great.
High quality fork. works well off road and on the street. Would purchase again.
Wow, I went from an XCT Suntour to a Rockshox Reba...Night and day...Not only is the fork super but the service was amazing...the order was quicker than an order I had placed locally in South Africa!! Thanks guys!!
Great forks, so much plusher than my coil Suntour forks. Setting up is more finicky than the coils as expected and as these are 2014 forks, I think perhaps the seals are not 100%! I may have some air in the lower legs, as the sag setting is hard to achieve on the recommended settings for body weight printed on the legs. I am just using them to bed them in first and they seem to be improving. Overall very happy with these forks.
