    Just finished the matic build up. XTR/X0, king hubs with 819s. Super fun on the shakedown run today ...I should probably spend more time washing my car!

    Sell the car. You won't want to drive it anymore.

    What's that saddle?

    The Transvésubienne 2009 occured last sunday. Considered as the hardest race of the world, 85kms, startup in mountain, finishing at Nice promenade des Anglais after 4500m downhill, 3300m ascent, incredible rocky trails, the race of the braves
    Maverick Durance and Duc32 the perfect weapon for such race !!!

    actually, we should start a new thread here - mavericks in competition events (visible start number compulsory with name, link & a few lines about the event) ...

    my opening contribution would be:



    flims superD 2008
    www.crosscountrychallenge.ch

    actually not really superD, more enduro oriented downhill, but fun anyway ...

    La Garoutade is in february, near Perpignan Pyrenees Orientales. It's a great "randonnée" not a race. 65kms, 2300m ascent, maximum DH around 500m, not really difficult. It allows to prepare the Transvé very soon in the season, in a sunny place (when it's cold and cloudy in Paris). The ambiance is great, people in the south west of France are very friendly.
    Transvé is another world: The three main DH, respectively 1200m, 1500m and 800m are very very difficult with all types of ground but mainly rocky. Be extremely carefully with the choice of the tyres. I made the good one with Schwalbe Racing Ralph Double Defense 2.25 for the rear and Specialized Eskar 2Bliss 2.3 for the front, both in NoTubes, low pressure.

    Abelia - my ML7/5

    Finally got around to cleaning her up for some pictures. Abelia has been built up now for about 2 months, and I have racked up about 400 AWESOME miles on her so far =)

    The coolest part on the bike is obviously the DUC, and Kevin at Suspension Experts really did a nice job on it, Thanks man

    You can see some more pics of my ride here http://www.flickr.com/photos/bcsnowc...7608679262361/

    here my new maverick durance. was supposed to be my trailbike, but ended up racing it on its first days at the breckepic race after running into trouble with my regular race bike. with parts borrowed from my wife's bike ...


    ... and liked it that much that i kept using it for 2 more days even when my regular bike was fixed again.

    Ladies and Gents, after a several month delay (on my part) I give you "Medusa"...

    She's a Medium Durance, and I literally just finished building her up 5 minutes ago! Just off out now to go get all the settings dialled in etc... Pretty happy with how she's turned out, probably gonna swap the tyres out for something grippier before I take her offroad tomorrow though... Let me know what you think!

    Cheers guys

    Rims are the "V brake" version of Mavics XM819 UST rim. Not all the common I don't think, certainly I've not seen that many. I got them cos on my previous bike I was going with the whole contrasting black/silver/black/silver look all over the bike, and it kind of worked. Still like the way the wheels look now and I prefer them to the Disc version I think.

    I'll play. Here's mine, all clean and waiting to be ridden. That's the "Travis Brown" 100mm DUC with floating piston, revalved & juiced innards and newly-replaced dropout adjuster block.

    This is Cosette. It was bought from Hicksville who's formerly of this parish.

    The tree that the bike is leaning on signifies the end of my back garden and the beginning of the grave yard. When the zombie invasion happens I'll be first to bite the dust.

    Post this as a new thread in the Maverick forum, you may get an answer there. This thread is mostly for pictures, and subsequently light on discussion.

    Lots of nice Mav's here. Got two myself, and pics soon. Got a question for the crew here. I just went to a Thomson post from a Speedball. Regardless of why, has anyone here had an issue getting the saddle to the angle they want? I tend to run just a hair 'nose down' from flat and can't get the post to do that. Did I chose poorly? Any bits available from Thomson?

    Thanks!

    I think I read that some seatposts have issues due to the seat tube angle. I can't chime in on Thompsons specifically as I have Speedballs/Joplins on all of my Mavericks.

    You'll need the Thomson 12 degree clamp assembly. It costs about $25.

    I came across the rather cool bike (the other one!) while riding in the woods the other day. It was being used by a <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rubber_tapping">rubber tapper</a> to get to his estate. The bike looks as though it is an artefact from the British Empire, with its rod-activated brakes.

    I lived in Central America in the mid 50's to '65. I saw so many bikes with those "brake rod systems" cable brakes were only on "Race Bikes" ie 10 speeds WoW! A real European Race Bike had not ONLY drop down bars......(Wait there's MORE) They had the very dangerous toe clips and toe straps that you had to wear "special shoes" that kept you tied to the bike!! They had these aluminum cool looking water bottles that hung on the front of the handlebars and had corks to keep the water inside.
    I also remember numerous brands of "mo-peds" that had a crank arms and chain connected to the engine. You took off on the bike pedaling the pedals then poped the clutch and she started. and down the road you went.

    What an awesome story, I can't believe that bike is actually ridden!

    looks like someone needs an even bigger frame ...

    nice and original colour scheme, but the long stem and the long seat post spoil it (in my eyes).

    There was a distributor here a few years ago, but now there isn't. This was the demo bike they had from 2006. It was sold as a bargain basement thing in 2008 to someone
    who used it for a year and traded it in for a new bike. It was gathering dust in the back store room of a shop where I found it and set it free (for a price so ridiculous I'm almost ashamed to say )

    Jgray, if ever you search / need a Maverick suspension center, I'm not too far from Israel (France) .. and if ever you come in France with your ML8 contact me I'll share some wonderful trails in the south.

    That's real nice of you Alp.
    As it happens the chief mechanic of the biggest bike retailer in Israel is a Maverick suspension specialist (they were the said distributor) and also a very nice guy. He is located 25Km from my home which is a little closer than France, and probably much closer than for 99% of the US crowd here. Lucky me
    But coming for the trails is something else... I'll be sure to give you a call.

    New Maverick Durance Frame built up

    This frame rocks!

    (Couldn't be happier with the feel and performance of the Durance for all-around, all-mountain/aggressive x-country riding).

    Maverick Post

    Really stoked for you. Looks like a great build with one of the best all mountain frames out there. Have a great summer shredding the singletrack.

    This is my 2nd ML8 and have had this one for 1 1/2 years. I have owned three ML7's one Matic and never had the Durance. Always wanted to ride one never owned one. Love the climbing and descending capabilities of the Mavericks. This bike rips Noble Canyon in the Lagunas

    Finally!

    ML8 Hammerschmidt, 33lbs of pure madness! I had 3 ride on them and love every minute of it. Had some trouble with the rear Tubeless conversion so new tires on the way it should end up below 32lbs.

    Definitely my most favorite bike

    That's cool!
    I am enjoying this bike. Just got back from a quick 8 miler up and down Black Mountain, made it home in time for breakfast.

    I love this drivetrain. I have 5 more cassettes and then I might have to go modern.

    Hey thanks,

    She weighs 27.2 pounds (feedback sports hanging scale). The front tire is over 2 pounds but it rides with such confidence that it is a keeper. It looks like a small motorcycle tire and has been flawless tubeless on the Flow rim. Recommended.

    At the end of the year I may try to shave weight by going to hydraulics, installing the M980 race pedal and doing a 5-6 speed rear. All that would only net about 2/3 of a pound but the bike could be stronger at the time....
