Need Your Opinions For a New Fork. 29'ER's

Hey this guy messaged me that he wanted to sell me his 2009 fox f29 for 380$ but he said the spring side weeps a little of oil. Is that normal? He was also offering me a 2007 Reba for 360$. Heres a link of the pic's he sent to me. Do you think the price is too high for a used? Thanks.

Weeping oil is not normal. The pricing seem high too, for used parts.

I just took a quick look at eBay. Here are two options to give you some feel for pricing:

1) Reba RL, 120mm, new take-off, $399: http://cgi.ebay.com/New-2011-Rock-Sh...4#ht_500wt_908

2) Fox RLC in "like new" condition, $397: http://cgi.ebay.com/Fox-Racing-F29RL...f#ht_500wt_908

I'm not recommending either of the above options. I'm just throwing them out there to show what's possible from eBay as far as pricing goes.

The price is pretty high on the Reba - I've seen those(previous model Reba 29's) sell for $200-250. The Fox is more appropriately priced, but still slightly high for a fork that apparently needs some work. Pass on them.
