I am hoping to find a 650B compatible fork that I can run something like a Nobby Nic or Rocket Ron 2.25 tire in. It seems that the Magura TS8 R 650 would work. Reading about the fork and looking at the design, I like it, and I'm looking for something in a 100/120mm travel, so that seemed like a great call.
But, I saw that X-Fusion's 100 fork can be converted to a 120 and vise-versa (if I read it right) and that sounded great to me in order to tune the bike better for various kinds of riding. Can you do the same with the Magura fork? For a hard tail, would you recommend one length vs. the other? I've read that the magura fork is better than the x-fusion, would you agree, and if so how much better?
I'm looking for something that is low-maintenance, responsive, and preferably light. This is a first MTB, so any input would be very helpful.
