Strengths:    Very stiff, strong, plush and lightweight. Better than any fork I have owned.

Weaknesses:    Maybe just a tad heavier than I would like, but given the strengths I guess it's a trade off. 85mm travel, but I have yet to bottom it out.

Bottom Line:   
I got this fork because you cannot find many good forks that still have V-brake mounts (yup, I still run 'em and don't have no desire to change that). I found the Magura Durin on Chainlove and didn't think arches would be strong enough. I did some research and found the Menja. The Menja has beefier dual arches. Sure it adds some weight over the Durin, but it's worth the peace of mind.

After setting it up properly, I noticed right off the bat that this fork was much better than anything I have ever ridden. Plush and rigid and compared to some forks it's lightweight at 3.6#.

I just wish I would have gotten this fork before I bought the Manitou R7. The R7 was a good fork, but a little too noodley for my liking.

Sid 80mm or Menja 85mm fork make a difference?

Need some valuable info on Fork travel. I currently rebuild my 1998 GT Xizang. It is currently running a old Fox 80mm Vanilla fork. From what I know, 80mm (3inches) is the max I should go in terms of front fork travel to keep my race geometry in with the bike personality. I see a good deal on a 2008 ... Read More »

Magura good is it?

I'm looking at a couple of different fork options right now. I'm a clyde who does aggressive XC. I have been considering the fox float 32 rlc, and I just started looking at the Magura Menja. Both are air sprung, which is the better fork. I weigh in at 235.Read More »
