    I've always wanted to throw a leg over a Maverick, but the opportunity never presented itself.

    It used to be a rare ride around Boulder that I didn't see someone on a Maverick, but they have kind of fallen off the past few years. Suspension technology moves on.

    We've sold about 150 Mavericks in the past 7 years... it's unfortunate they are shutting down, however I bet most of those 150 are still riding their bikes 3 or 4 years from now. Mavericks tend to last and last and last. It was one of the issues the company had actually... Paul is still weighing options from what I hear, so don't write them off completely yet.

    FTFY

    The newer Durance and the ML8 are definitely capable bikes and only just recently have other companies come out with frames that have slightly more features and an overall perfect all mountain package.

    The 29er that Maverick was working on was going to be my next bike. Super bummed about that.
