Why would you require a top SID suspension fork when you have Reba? Lighter, less expensive and with the definite travel, it just fails to offer SID’s Rapid Recovery framework which has certain focal points, however even in this way, Reba’s own particular execution will fulfil any beginner, and, I accept, even some professional riders.
Likewise important to the fan class may be the way that Reba is less expensive than SID, as well as its very nearly 3 times less expensive, making it one of Rock Shox’s most famous models, and in the same time the ideal all-rounder.
Initially presented in 2004, Reba experienced distinctive upgrades through the years, the most genuine one occurring in 2013, when it was fitted with the Solo Air framework, which infers less and more straightforward conformities, and simpler upkeep.
The Reba RL Solo Air for 29ers additionally got some aesthetical upgrades, yet other than them, it’s essentially indistinguishable with the past era the extent that execution goes. Different alternatives, in the same way as bounce back, the lock-out remote or the SAG marker are available on this model, with the likelihood to expand the go to 120mm or diminishing it to 80mm, operations that oblige dismantling the fork keeping in mind the end goal to include or evacuate spacers.
An alternate significant positive side of Reba’s is its weight. Indeed in the 29er form, that uses more material, Rockshox reba figured out how to keep the figure at 1.581 grams, in the decreased head tube form, short of what SID RL’s quality, and just 20 grams more than the Fox F29. Not one or the other does it need in solidness, since it utilizes the 15mm thru hub, generously stiffer than the traditional 9mm, regardless of the fact that the stanchions have a width of 32mm.
Fitting your new fork
In the wake of fitting your new fork to your best road bike, you have to set it up accurately for your prepared to ride weight, your riding style, and your nearby trails. First and foremost, set the bounce back on the base of the right hand side fork leg. Set this at full quick, turn it completely towards the bunny.
Presently gives up to the air chambers, which are found on the left hand side of the fork leg. Expel both spreads from the Schrader valves, unscrew them and painstakingly let all the let some circulation into of both the positive and negative air chambers.
You will be decently encouraged to flip around the bicycle when expelling the air from the negative air load on the bottom of the fork leg, else it may spit fork oil all over you. Utilize a cloth when evacuating the air … wrap it around the fork leg and valve to counteract oil getting on the front plate and cushions.
When you have discharged the air from both chambers, go get your fork pump and pump 60% of your prepared to ride weight into the Positive chamber. At that point pump 10 psi less into the Negative chamber.
