    Manitou or Fox is far better. Works like shox in bike from supermarket.

    Pros
    - I cannot find any.

    Cons
    - stiff
    - does not pick bumps.
    - not sliding without resistance.
    - no way to set it correctly

    I have the rlt 29 on my Orbea alma and my wife has the rl 29 on her trek cali carbon. Both work great with no issues.

    Pros
    Easy to setup, fairly light. Soaks up the trails.

    Cons
    None

    I rode a Psylo Race prior to this fork and the Reba's RTL responsiveness to the terrain and the lighter weight of the fork are an upgrade.

    Pros
    This shock is silky smooth. Love the adjustment and fine tuning that can be done. You can really see the minute adjustments made based on weight and riding style in how the fork performs.

    Cons
    None

    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.

    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
    Light, reliable, easy to set-up and maintain

    Cons
    Flexy

    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.

    Pros
    Stiff, responds well to terrain. Fewer bells and whistles.

    Cons
    Not as adjustable as previous models

    Love this fork. Thru-axle give an extra stiffness. This fork is easy to adjust and pure joy to ride. And it priced fairly low. I've done an annual service to it once and keep riding. From time to time check/change air pressure to adopt for different trails. I'm sure there're many other great forks available but this one fits my need and riding stile perfect

    Pros
    Stiff, easy to adjust, lock-out, 20mm thru-axle, convert rough singletrack into highway-quality ride, easy to service

    Cons
    None

    The fork is no longer available, but if you can get your hands on one, it's definitely worth the investment.

    Pros
    -Buttery smooth
    -Handlebar mounted lock out remote
    -High quality
    -Stiff front end

    Cons
    -No longer available in stores.

    I LOVE this fork. It came stock on my Giant Anthem. I can set it and forget it as I do not have to keep adding air to it even between seasons it holds its air. This fork has taken some serious abuse thruought some of the most technical trails in New England, mosty southern NH. It has seen thousands of miles and still operates as it did the first ride out of the bike shop!

    Pros
    - dual air
    - lightweight
    - very durable
    - pro pedal lockout
    - allows you to stick the line you chose no matter how rough

    Cons
    Have not found any as of yet

    Great fork for 26 and 29 inch varieties. Stiffer than the SID but not as light.

    Pros
    Ride this fork from time to time on the shop bike. Great adjustability from the dual air spring and the damping is what you expect from Rockshox.

    Definitely buy the newest year as you can get. Mine was a 2007 and it lasted about 2 weeks.

    Pros
    lightweight and can easily be turned

    Cons
    Oil leak into lower chamber causing it to lockout for good. Also heard a metal bang when it tried to compress. Had to send it back

    Great all around fork and the funny thing is that this thing can compete with Rockshoxs top dog the SID. I would recommend this fork for anyone who is riding XC.

    Pros
    Great control over bumps. Love the poploc option as well as the weight for this fork in its class

    Cons
    none

    Get this fork, it's a great value. Plenty of travel for most riders in a solid package.

    Pros
    Lightweight and responsive. Simple lock out and air sprung so you can adjust tension via shock pump. 29er version fits 29-inch wheels like a glove.

    Cons
    Offset wheel mounts make quick release skewers more like slow release skewers.
