    Ordered my Reba today :)

    Today I ordered my Rockshox Reba sl w/ u turn and a Cain creek headset. Tomorrow I'm gonna pick up Lx hollowtech cranks with a xtr bb. Still have a way to go but the rockhopper is gonna get alot of parts put on it soon. When everything comes I will post pictures. I have to update the pictures of my hardrock too, I added truvativ riser bars, a deore rear derailler and new sram shifter. And some nice diamondback pedals. Bike looks nice and rides like brand new. I will update the pictures soon on my site www.kriskraft.net

    I got an email from price point today saying I should call them regarding my order. Apparently they ran out of the Reba sl's and I was upgraded to a Reba Race instead. It is an 05 model but hell who cares. I am so excited. Eta on the pictures if They ship it today would be 5 or 6 days Ups ground but the day I get them you can be sure I will post them cant wait

    MX recomended the Reba for me, and he was right. A great fork, lightweight and tough.

    and a Cain creek headset
    I hope you're Abel to install it. (sorry, couldn't resist)

    Great news on your Reba upgrade. I have a Reba SL on my Rig, and I really like the fork.
    For setting up the Reba, there are a couple of good threads over at MTBR, which I have bookmarked:

    I set mine up using about 60% of my weight for the positive pressure, and about 60% of the positive for the negative pressure. (155lbs rider weight, ~90~95psi positive, ~60psi negative). I have my rebound damping set nearly at the lowest, and my floodgate nearly fully closed.

    I have been going to my lbs for a long time and since I bought so many other parts from them for my old bike and my new one he said to stop by with my frame when I get the parts and he will press the hs in for me and install the fork and bb for free. Nice guys over there at Adams Schwinn in np
