I have just bought some Magura Durin forks and only had 2 rides on them.
From new they were very stiff and a great feeling fork. I couldn't tell the difference in stiffness compared to my 15mm thru axle Fox FIT 100 RLC.
However half way around the ride today I was finding descending quite difficult and feeling quite disconnected from the bike.
Only when I got home did I notice a large amount of side to side play in the forks. Forwards and backwards there is no play- there is only a problem side to side. It looks as though the play comes from the stanchion on the side of the applied force compressing in to the lowers while the stanchion on the side opposite to the applied force remains stationary.
There is a huge amount of play to the extent of resembling a very loose QR (which there isn't). I have also changed wheels and it definitely isn't a hub/ wheel/ QR issue.
Does anyone know what the source of the problem might be? Would iffy bushings only be noticeable side to side but be fine front to back? I can't see any cracks so it seems unlikely to be an external structure problem.
Any advice or pointers before heading off to the LBS/ contacting Magura next week would be really helpful.
Many thanks in advance!
