We installed a White Brothers Magic 29″ 80mm fork on the test rig a couple of nights ago. We chose the Disc Brake only option because forks look so much cleaner this way. MSRP for this fork is: $725.00. Here are some pictures of the beautiful fork.
White Brothers Cycling has been very supportive of the 29er movement providing a myriad of quality forks for riders to choose from in a variety of travel lengths. For 20ers WB cycling has an 80mm, 100mm, 100mm Thru Axle (TA), 130 TA, 135 TA & a carbon rigid.
Many people also attribute White Brothers to single handedly supporting the longer travel 29er bikes by providing the 29er builders with longer travel options. I’ve heard some rumors out there that someone is testing a 150mm TA single crown 29er fork.
Since the frame that the fork is going on is suspension corrected for an 80mm fork, we decided to test the Magic 29″ 80mm.
Here are the specifications:
Model Name Magic 29/80
Brake mount V-brake/Disc or Disc Only
Wheel Size 29″
Adjustments (external and/or internal) Threshhold, Rebound, Air Pressure
Spring Linear Air Spring
Steerer Tube 250mm
We’ll be spending some time on this fork to give it a thorough review. Keep checking back for more pictures and the review in the coming months. In the meantime, for more information on the White Brothers Magic 29″ 80mm fork, click here.
Oh, and not to peg White Brothers for being only a 29er fork maker, not that there is anything wrong with that ;), White Brothers Cycling does make a ton of other forks. Click here to see them.
