Are my new Rockshox Reba forks real or fake?

Postby danbro » 10 Sep 2018, 3:17pm

Apologies, I tried to put the images in the post... couldn't get it to work so have linked out.

The have Rockshox Reba stickers but no serial number on the back of the fork crown where I've read I should *always* find it...

The forks seem solid - good fakes it they are... the other thought was they might be re-stickered ? is there somewhere else I can check? I'm keen to service the forks but not sure where to start :shock:

Yeah, I've looked at the service manual - it says you check serial number stamped on the rear of fork crown for year/model info - it's smooth on my forks.

That would indicate they may not be pukka, but who knows? Best to email the manufacturer and ask them.

They look like the right decals on the right fork to me. Some forks had serial numbers/bar codes on a sticker rather than stamped in. It's possible the sticker has come off or been removed.
