    From what I've read, Magura doesn't make a bad fork. IIRC this is the coil-sprung version of their XC-oriented line of forks. I'm actually looking at buying the Menja, which is basically the same fork, but air sprung, and is a hundred or so bucks more.

    All the reviews I've read on the Magura forks have been quite positive for the new '07 and '08 forks, so of the Odur fits your bill, then I'd say go for it.

    Good luck mate!

    I have three Menja's, all of which are about the best thing I have ever ridden, and at about half the price of Rock Shox and Fox.

    I think the Odur is the spring version of the Menja. Very simple, very solid, very stiff, very German. If you want a new one you can get them online at Bikeman.com. They have the 2008 line already and give you the option of black or white (previously only available in Europe). These German forks are pretty nice.

    I have the odur 85mm. I liked it so much I picked up another one. They are very well built. It looks more like a work of art. It is pretty heavy. If that is not an issue, you should love that fork.

    I just looked up the weight of the 85mm, and found 4.6 pounds. That doesn't seem too bad, gotta be better than the SR Suntour XC-60 that I have now Speaking of that, anyone know the weight of the suntour xc-60??

    Thanks for the info guys!

    I'm currently pondering grabbing one of these as well.
    Everything I have read has been totally positive, and it will be a huge step up from my current Dart 1 LOL

    I have sold several of the new Magura forks. Every customer raves about them and is glad they got them. I haven't handled any Odur's (coil) in about a year but the Laurin's, Menja's and Wotan's have been big hits here. So far no technical issues and no warranty problems, just smooth air forks. Don't get me wrong, I love Fox forks and have for years but these new Magura forks bring a lot to the table. I run a Wotan on my Chumba EVO and couldn't be happier.
