And He was Not
I heard a rumor they are going to be shipping the Magic Forks out next week.
How much are they charging you?Salsa Cycles said: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.

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