Always fancied one of these! Never took the plunge though. Very nice!
Are you running 80mm Sids?

You'll get on really well with the Maguras. Super light forks and super stiff. Aren't the frames not ment to take 100mm?

I'm sure they'd be fine with either :) I prefer the quicker steering with 80 and not bothered for 100mm of travel ;)
