    Very little clearance but sufficient for a 3.8 Nate tire on a 80MM rim.

    Insatiable

    It's about time I posted pics of my ML8 here... I am the "lucky SOB" that won the frame at the Wydaho Rendezvous back in 2010.
    I've had her built for a couple of years now and just changed the drivetrain to 2x9.

    The new DUC32 I just got, already install on my Nicolai.



    Thanks to Ethan I found the parts that where missing (31/8mm stem, "longer Steer tube", etc) plus a bunch of cool stickers


    And a pair of red guards for my SC32 fork on my fatbike, but so far I'm not to sure if I like them or not..

    Hello all. First post here.
    I used to Mountain bike but living in NJ at the beach now and I limit my biking to get to and from work which is a 6 mile route on flat paved land. Yeah, kinda boring. I have lived in Tahoe and then Steamboat CO and remember my days on my RockShox/hardtail fondly.

    Here is why I am posting... I was in my company's warehouse looking for a box to ship a fork to a friend, and oddly enough I come across the perfect sized box. My warehouse manager tells me that I am welcome to the box and the thing that is inside of it. Well... to my surprise, I look down and the box is printed "Maverick American Fork". As I open it I realize quite quickly that I am looking at a brand new, still wrapped in plastic, full suspension mountain bike fork with matching Hub, Crown and some other goodies. The manager said it was shipped erroneously to our location about 8 years ago and he tried to return it but Maverick did not want it back. The fork in particular is a DUC32.

    So anyway.... After some limited googling, I find out that Maverick has been out of business for a little while now. But it seems that they made quite an impression on the MTB community and produced some excellent bikes during their run, many of which are still running.

    I am not sure what to do with the fork. The packing ship from Maverick lists the total of everything at $650. Is this a collector's item? Is this fork still being used? Would anyone be interested in it?

    When I say mint, I mean the pastic is still on the fork. I am not certain if i even want to sell it, but really, I have no use for it. I have enough random bike stuff sitting around so I am open to any and all inquiries.

    And in closing... being a brand-noob to this forum I sincerely apologize if this is the incorrect place to post something like this. I did not see a "marketplace forum" or anything that seemed to fit what I was writing about.


    Thanks for reading and take care.

    Some people loved the DUC32. I never liked them. My ML8 has a single crown rock shox currently.

    Durance with XX1

    As she sits now:
    Post your Maverick!!-maverick-durance-sram-xx1.jpg
    I'm loving the XX1, even though I'm not usually a SRAM guy. So smooth and quiet with a wide range and Shimano-like shift effort. Never a dropped chain once and the bike weighs 25.5lb with a dropper, sealant, and 14mm f&r. This bike has been getting all of the love lately...

    Changed a few components on my Durance since its last appearance on here, so thought I'd take another photo or two...





    New RF Turbine Cranks, Deore brakes (wow, seriously!) and a change of tyres and pedals since last time... Just waiting for it to finally dry out a bit more here in the UK, so I can finally take the mud tyre off the back and put something faster rolling on (yes really, in May!).

    Lol know what you mean, hail, rain and then warm barmy sunshine then more rain in the same day. You running 3 rings up front? I ask because I went to two as I thought the shift to the bigger ring a bit vague on my ML8, I haven't missed it anyway. Your baby looks sweet, I couldn't get DUC's for my build but the xfusion 170/36mm run well. I've been running Shwalbe Hans Dampf tubeless for the last 6 months and love them wet or dry. Pity the carbon DUC36's never saw prodution.

    Running a Double setup, 24/36/Bash, same as I have been for a while now. I ditched 3 front rings as I used to spend almost all my time in the 32, with the chain flapping about. Had 24/36 on a previous bike and decided to go the same route, personally I find it an ideal compromise. Just eyeing up a new clutch mech for it at the moment, see if they're as good as they're cracked up to be. Also looking for a new rear tyre...

    Ha!

    If less is more just think how much more more would be...

    Actually that picture a little old.

    It now has gold pedles and bb shell to match the seat post.

    ...plus a fair bit more mud!

    Mud and fun is what it's all about
    Had "Adoc" just over 12mths now and I need to change the linkage bearings for the second time is this normal? Maybe maintenance needs to be more than post ride clean and lube? Might just start a check on them every 3-4 rides though I do check for play pretty often. On another note I let my mate ride her as his cannondale lefty was in for fettling, now he's the type who just rides steady no dramas but was very impressed how well the ML8 climbs and confidence he felt in corners.

    i forgot to mention the addition of extra cups for the head set bearings so that the fork angle is flattened by about 1.5° - despite abuse everything has been holding up fine ...

    Certainly this is going to be EXTREMELY expensive, but how much are you asking for it? can't PM because of the idiotic post rule.

    the standard 1 1/8" integrated campy recommended for maverick frames - effectively the cups just lengthen and flatten the steerer path through the headtube, replacing the bearing surfaces in the headtube with 'external ones'.

    I thought that you use cane creek angleset headset.
    your patent seems a little difficult , isn't it?
    Do you have any photos?

    no, the crane creek angleset is NOT made for the maverick type of head tube (1 1/8" integrated/campagnolo).

    i got my bearing cups from saar gelvan in israel. i believe there is another company in the UK that is making similar adapters (but perhaps not for integrated head tubes). they are not cheap, but service and attention from saar gelvan could not be better.

    the bearing cups are machined for a specific length of head tube, which also determines how much the angle can be adjusted (the shorter, the better). mine are installed on the durance/DUC32 (gives a little over 67°) and on my ml8/lyrik (gives a little over 66°). both set-ups are working fine, despite being used hard in the rough - but then i only weigh 72kg kitted up

    you can see in the images how the top bearing is set back with respect to the head tube. the lower bearing is also set forward. the overall change in steering angle results from this, plus 12mm additional stack height ...

    How has this affected the climbing ability of the bikes?
    Are the cups glued into the frame head tube cups? Are they removable to reverse back to original. What about the affect of the new trail and rake on the fork stanchions. Directional forces will be different.

    I had thought of doing this and contacted Saar but changed my mind due to the steepness/climbing of my local trails. This is why I decided to try a 650b front wheel.

    i'm in the alps and we have some steep climbs here - climbing abilty is not impaired, at least not that i have noticed.

    they are 'glued' with loctite green (as for bearings), saar actually recommends this too. and so yes, they are removable.

    i had my duc32 in one of the first giant reign frames, and the head angle must have been about 66° too - again without issue. strictly speaking, i don't remember maverick ever placing any restriction (re. head angle) on the use of the duc32. lastly, a 650b wheel will change your geometry too, and i don't see ethan saying 'stop'.

    personally, i think it is the best (external) thing you can do to help the fork perform. naturally, the frames were not designed for this, so everyone must decide for themselves ...

    ... note that you do have to check the exact dimensions on the maverick head tubes, as they may not be exact to spec - specifically the depth of the bearing seats below/above the top/bottom of the head tube:

    Looks Mint!! Personally I'd go 2x10 or even 1x11 if I had the cash, shifting wasn't so good when I had the 3 so changed it pretty soon after build. Lucky you

    This bike was given to me in exchange of two month work in a bicycle store with was the importer of maverick to Portugal.
    It was kinda built "as I wanted", I had the option of having 2x10spd but I guess the mount for the derailleur needed to be machined, and I though it wasn't robust enough.
    And since I never ran 2x10 but only 3x9 I decided to stay with 3x10.
    The frame was new and was getting dust because it missed some parts (which I managed to find).
    Only front suspension needs to go to our friend alpatech in France to get good revision and maybe some tune up.
    Now unfortunately I am in 1 year Erasmus in Slovenia but when I arrive to Portugal in Xmas it will get a good ride

    I didn't do any machining for my setup on a 2006 frame but 3x10'll get your where you want to go anyway. Enjoy Slovenia and have a blast when you get back bro.

    Tell me about it way to much stuff, this is how my "parts storage" looks like and even then I end up buying a bunch of brand new parts since the Maverick's are so specific..

    I decide to go with a White Flite and a Hope QR seat collar to add some color even if it clashes with the "mango" from the forks a little.

    I also wrap the chainstay with "self Vulcanizing" tape, really neat material.

    My new ML-7 almost complete..


    I don't really like the mate black anodizing, so I may painted in the near future.


    Pretty aluminum bolts just for bling, The "Rollamagic" works great with such a swingarm like the ML-7.


    I cross the cables to "the other side" for rounder curves and better shifting.

    More pretty bolts, hopefully they will not fail.

    Good to see she is coming together. It looks like you have the Travis Brown version of the DUC32 that originally came on a Trek 69er. The good news is that it had a nicely tricked out damper with an IFP. The bad news (not really bad news) is that it also came with travel reducing spacers for a 29er front wheel. If you haven't checked, you may want to open up that fork and see if those spacers are still there. If you stay with a 26" front wheel you can remove the spacers (leave the bottom out bumpers!) for more travel.

    On second thought, maybe the reduced travel is a better match for the ML7. Anyone else out there have thoughts on that?

    Thanks senor, yes the fork is from a trek and I already to the 29er spacer long time ago..

    Ps: you guys know so much about this bikes, what a wonderful forum..

    PsII: I install a crossmax wheel in the back and I'm sending the front wheel to a great friend and amazing fabricator to the get a Maverick compatible axle made..

    My Mono-Link family

    Here is my Mono-Link collection. Tracky (ML7), Gary (Klein) Mabel (Wifes new Matic), and Trigger (Durance) and Diesel our riding buddy. I ordered these new frames from Ethan and he allowed us to pick our names. I didn't see the post of someone else with a ML8 named Trigger till after I ordered. The older ML7 and Palomino will donate their parts then get put on ebay.

    Still Loving my Durance

    Posted around page 8. Upgrades to brakes, drivetrain and have gone through a few tires. Just had the suspension cleaned out with new seals and oil by Independent Suspension Operation and it is running great.

    Sure I do..

    The rear ones.


    The front ones..


    I got the mango bolts from pro-bolt USA, but be careful they are kind of a ripoff, not only the bolts are super expensive but they charge $8.75 to ship them and to make it worst it took almost 11 day to deliver them..

    Now if you need a source red ones, gold ones or even black I have a source for much cheaper ones and shipping is free if you order more than 20

    Another little trick I did was to perform my trademark Safety wire job on the grips, they will never move, no matter how wet they get, no need for glue and I also like they way they look, plus is far more difficult to cut the grips and get the handle bar components stolen (not like I ever leave my bikes unattended)

    The ML-7 has become my favorite bike and I have plenty, so she is getting the best of my stuff including this Hope brakes that work so well.


    So I got new stickers from Ethan But as a big dummy I think I install them a little to low (of a angle) on the downtube.

    there is not - tout-terrain.de did provide full sales and support, but they now only provide support for those products still current (and complementary) to their 'touring' portfolio, i.e. SC32 and the Speedball (if i remember correctly!!). for service, i think the best EU option right now is alpamayo ...

    apparently tout terrain do still have a fair catalogue of spare parts (ca. Sept. 2013):

    Hi Damian,

    if you need help, service or spare parts for your Maverick you can contact me as well. I have most of the parts in stock for frame, fork and damper. I´m located in Germany (Bielefeld area) and have all the necessary tools for the job.

    Hallo Damian,

    Du kannst mir eine PM (Private Message) über das Forum hier senden wenn Du Hilfe/ Ersatzteile etc. benötigst. Im IBC Forum schaue ich mich auch regelmäßig um, bin aber kein IBC "Vereins" Mitglied falls Du das meinst?! Maverick kenne/kannte ich sehr gut, war selber damals in Golden/USA und habe regelmäßig Kontakt zum ehem. Techniker Ethan. Leider ist die Company Ende 2011 geschlossen worden und viele warten hier auf einen evtl. Neuanfang. Die Bikes sind aber immer noch state of the art und Teile etc. gibt es noch genügend. Also melde Dich bei Bedarf.

    Time for an updated picture of my ML8. Here's a shot of my monolink trying to run away from the rest of the bike. It's soooooo close to freedom!



    Of course my frame (that i've been riding hard since 2008) gives up now, I'm closing on a new house in 3 weeks. It's not like it's going to die when I'm rolling in the dough! Noooooooo wayyyyyyy. So I'm hoping Ethan might be able to hook me up some how. If not.... Debt here I come.

    Wow , it is my first time to see something like that. A cracked weld.
    Usually the cracked part is the metal around the weld , but no the weld.

    So I actually cracked the rear triangle of this frame in the exact same way. The welds along the base of the shock body both started to split right in the middle of the welds.

    Now, given the abuse this bike has taken, I'm hesitant to call it defective. I mean, there's only so many drops a 6 lb piece of metal can take. I wonder how many feet i've dropped on this bike, if you add them all up together!

    But anyway, I have always been told that the welds are stronger than the original metal, so I too am a little surprised that I keep splitting welds right down the middle like this.

    It's actually been 6 full riding seasons, you can't complain about that.

    KleinPus........full sus 29+ :)

    Some of you may remember my Fat Klein conversion.

    Then (some time later), 29er+ appeared.

    So I measured and it 'looked' possible

    Rabbit holes built onto Mav front hub and Salsa 170mm rear.

    Knards added.

    Held breathe.......THEY FIT, but only just.

    Judicious use a B**tard file and angle grinder, much better.

    I like it
