I heard a rumor they are going to be shipping the Magic Forks out next week.

I'm not sure about next week, but...

I've got two forks in being upgraded to the new technology. EKO/White Bros said they'd be done in a few weeks when they get another round of parts in. I didn't even ask if that meant that they were nearing full production.

I have spoken to WB about it I believe it was just shy of $200 for the upgrade + shipping cost. They indicated that they wouldn't be offering the upgrade service until the backlog of new fork orders was satisfied first. I hope to send my .8 in January and give the new dampening a try.

While I didn't speak with them directly about timing, filling back logs and what not, I'm not concerned. As a manufacturer, they contacted me about the forks prior to Interbike and I asked to have mine upgraded when the snow hit here in MN. Well, we've got about 5 more months of winter here in MN, so I'm not too concerned if they bump me until after production.

Id be willing to bet industry types may get slightly faster service than Appalachian Hillbillies like me. :rolleyes:

I really hope that they are great forks. I almost ordered one, but I will wait for reviews. I am pretty happy with the reba. I would buy one if the performance is as good and it is significantly lighter. Cost will be more I know, but that is ok. I picked up an 05 Reba a couple of months ago new and I am still waiting to use it. My Dean is still not here. Been 3 months....I am finally starting to get impatient. I was fine as long as cross season was going on, but now that it is over.....I just hope it is worth the wait.

Anyway, I am excited to see what the verdict is by the masses. I know that the pre-production word was great by the few that road it. I am just unwilling to plunk down that sort of cash until I am sure.

You might be very surprised, I generally have good luck sending the customer in after them, after I have failed to get what they wanted out of a given manufacturer. Seems the closer you are to the end user, the more they will listen, especially if you already own their product!
