New forks!
« on: September 11, 2014, 01:13:06 pm »
Arrived today (next day delivery from Wiggle (DPD), £4.99. Text updates, very easy to follow, given an hours window this morning. Absolutely fantastic service  :thumbsup: ).

Will fit them tonight to my BFe, replacing some very old Magura Durin Marathons. Hopefully chuck it down Cathkin Braes on Saturday morning if I can find my pedals...

So, what's the verdict?

So far I'm very impressed, they track perfectly and the spring rate is very progressive, no dive as of yet. Very happy I went with them, I'm sure Pikes and TALAS 34's are very good but at £200+ more than these I'm not sure they are that good. I've ridden some good forks on other peoples bikes and these are certainly up to the task. Going from QR to 15mm is also a revelation and with Hope hubs the change is very simple.

Only been round Carron Valley so far, hoping to hit Glentress next week to see what they can really do. Will get a pic up soon, the bike is now officially an all-mountain hardtail and fits my riding perfectly. :)
