Onwards and upwards is the theme for 2013 for our Team Suspension. The new Suspension Fork Range features a new design, a new name and new internal componentry. The perfect option for BIG WHEELS comes in the form of our new 29er Forks. 80 mm, 100 mm, 120 mm travel.
Weaknesses: 2013 model has plastic bushings which came loose and had to be sent back to Magura
This review is for a 2013 Magura TS8 R 29er 120 Tapered 15MM thru axel.
When I first installed the fork on my bike it felt very harsh and I couldn't get all of the travel out of it. after about 15 rides it was locking up on me. I discoverd that the lower bushing had worked loose. My LBS shipped it Back to Magura. They rebuilt it with 2014 bushings which are metal not plastic.
the fork is now a 100% better than it was. very plush and getting all the travel out of it on bigger hits.
Excellent customer sevice on Magura's end. Probably one of the the nicest riding forks I've ridden.
