Now, what interest me most is the fact is Magura focusing on AM/ Enduro/ kind of forks, so anything above 120mm, or do they have any plans for 100mm forks as well?Seriously, it looks to me that 90% of the big guys are looking at 650B for above 120mm types of bikes, primarily full suspension.I somehow have the feeling that the strategy is like:- 26 for the normal, average bikes (mainly full supension entray-mid level, the rest of the 26 hardtails is focusing more for beginners/ entry level bikes)- 29er for hard tails primarily, basically replacing 26 totally- 650B all the way to replace 26 in nearly all full suspension bikes from XC racing to AM/ Enduro/ DownhillWhat do you think?
At the 25th Taipei Cycle Show, Magura has just showed a fork dubbed "TS8 120" for 650b. More on that on www.mtb-news.de this week - keep yer eyes (and minds) open.650b, the better 29? We'll see, but I think so.
Change the wheel size, change the offset -- it made 29ers work, and it will make 650b wheels work too. White Bros figured it out and went with 41-42mm offset. Unfortunately, Magura didn't list the offset in their spec sheet. Anyone know the offset on Magura's 650b offerings?
