Magura's Thor 150 AM/Trail Fork and the Affordable MT2 Brake - Interbike 2011
Can't wait to test this baby! :-) Converted my old 2009 Thor to the new Meistergrease and bushings this summer and it works better than new (which was already darn good). Would really like to know what all the other improvements do to the Thor. :-)

Magura MT-8 Disc Brake Review
@elzyboy: No. The 2 years you state are required by european consumer laws. Magura adds a 5 year warranty against leaks. So if your Maguras are leaking because Magura screwed up, your brakes will be replaced. If you kill your brakes through a crash, it's your fault and noone will replace your brakes. Pretty simple, eh?

Magura's MT8 - Sea Otter 2011
Since this is a completely new technology, the costs for developement and new machinery are still a big part of the price. I'm pretty shure they will get cheaper over time. Also 400$ ist the price for the superlight highend MT8. The MT2, which also incorporates a lot of this new technology, is much cheaper.

Electric Assist Downhill Bikes?
I don't get all the haters. Bikeparks are great, everyone loves to shuttle up the hill and get lots of nice runs out of the day. I haven't heard bikepark-bashing for a long time. This bike is just about the same, the only difference is that you can finally get more runs out of hills that don't have lifts. It would make no sense for XC, but the point of downhilling is going down the hill, so why should this version of going up the hill be bad?

Magura's New Brake Revealed!
Funny, over here in Europe it's just the other way round. You get spare parts for Maguras on every corner. If Avids fail (and they do a fair bit of that) you often have to wait weeks to get them fixed. For Maguras it's just a matter of hours. And I think that the higher price outside of Europe has a lot to do with the low Dollar.

Magura's New Brake Revealed!
Great idea! I guess they don't exist so far, since the carboflow technology (where they can control how the carbonfibers are positioned) is completely new. But I would think that the future is bright with those new possibilities.

Magura's New Brake Revealed!
The performance factor chart as PDF directly off of the Magura homepage: http://www.mission-performance.com/fileadmin/user_upload/magura/pdf/MAGURA_Performance_Faktor_E.pdf The master cylinder uses the Carbotecture technology, the caliper is made out of aluminum. :)

Magura's New Brake Revealed!
Those brakes are really sexy! So far Magura had a pretty decent design (with occasional mistakes) but this is really great. I'm so looking forward to riding these babies! :)

Would have been a nice pic, if they wouldn't have used this ugly HDR-like effect.
