Mountain bike suspension keeps getting better and better while options for wheel sizes continue to expand. We asked Singletracks members about their favorite mountain bike fork, and based on the 2,200+ responses we...
Recommendation: Its a great fork. Adjustable enough. Their pressure settings work well. I go to the softer side of the adjustment range for the rocky rooty terrane around VA and the front end really hooks up well. I have almost 10 K miles on mine and no problems yet and still works great.
Pros: Light, reliable, easy to set-up and maintain
Recommendation: It came stock on my bike and I like it. It's easy to maintain, easy to set-up and a pleasure to ride. If to compare with more expensive forks, there's a little flex, which is alright for me
Pros: Stiff, responds well to terrain. Fewer bells and whistles.
Cons: Not as adjustable as previous models
Recommendation: The 2013 model has fewer adjustments as the discontinued the Motion Control for the Reba model. This has been a benefit to me because it was my first air fork and made it much easier to set up.
