    Beautiful ML8 If I win the lottery, I'll buy one to add to my Durance. I bet it feels nice in the bumps.

    Ok here's mine!







    Started off as a very much XC bias build but, as can be seen in the pics, I have added a bit of meat to the bones of late! Best bike I have ever ridden, let alone owned

    I really need to shorten that front brake hose...

    Great looking Maverick. I am sure it climbs and descends like no other. Good job on the build.

    Bingo

    Upgraded the ML75 to an ML8 late last year and am absolutely loving it.

    Full XTR with Hope Tech M4/X2 brakes and Scandium Bonty Rhythm Pro wheels. Have a trip to Les Arcs in the Alps booked in the summer so will be putting some dual ply Minion 2.5s on it.

    Really like that bike. I wanted to run those wheels and I have a new bonty mav hub but couldn't find 'em at a price I wanted to pay. Are you running the NN tubeless?

    Thanks guys. Yeah they are running tubeless but were such tight fit I had to get my LBS to fit them as I kept snapping tyre levers! They are UST tyres so a but heavy but it rides so well I don't really care!

    The wheels are fantastic - wide rims but very light and strong and always good money in the UK as everyone wants Stans!

    ML8 and Whyte 19 Trail

    Here's the ML8 and Whyte 19 which runs SC32s. The brakes are matching so I can interchange wheels.

    did you have the front wheel made up, or is the maverick hub available a BTO for the rhythm wheelset?

    I had it made up - bought the wheels from a guy stripping a Remedy and had a local guy rebuild it for me.

    Here's mine - ML8 large, ready for French Alps....This frame works really so well
    The fork is the specialized E150 for now, i'm working on the setting, only concern is the weight of this fork, but overall behaviour is fine.

    Sorry tymelero, I didn't see this, but it looks like you got out there anyway. Sweet bike!!

    I had a great ride on Saturday. Awesome trail. A little wet in places, but a great day to be out. It's hard for me not to gush over how much fun that bike is to ride. Wow.

    Loving the orange bike! Think it makes the ML8 look very 2011 - TBH, I'm getting a bit bored of the hard ano finish despite it being very hard wearing and was thinking only today about getting it painted in something a little brighter - quite fancied the durance blue colour.

    I know what you mean about the hard ano. That baby blue durance colour was a beauty!

    I actually really quite like the ML8 in orange. IMHO the ML8 also looks more 'right' with the dual crown fork, the Durance just doesn't carry the DUC off half as well.

    i think that depends on how the bike has been built up - there have been a few weight-weenie ml8s posted here and the DUC32 doesn't look good on those either ...

    the orange on the ml8 doesn't do it for me - maybe with the right combination of parts it could be workable, but i think i would rather just paint the frame the durance fast baby blue ...

    Where was this pic taken? I'm sure I recognise that bridge in the background...

    Nice bike by the way.

    Markyboy, I think it's just off the River Aire between Horsforth and Rodley in Leeds. One of a couple of cheeky routes off the Leeds Liverpool canal!

    Ah, you're a fair bit north of me then. Looks just like a bridge going over the river near Bewdley in Worcestershire. Never mind, thought I'd found another local Mav owner then!

    Ah, pity. I'm sure most of these bridges look the same. Both within the UK seems to be about as local as Maverick owners come around here IME!

    Had him for about four years now. I reduced the travel on the fork by 15mm which made the whole bike feel much more balanced and together. Was way too chopperish with the original ML7 geometry.

    Lovely, lovely bike, climbs like a mountain goat :-)
    Hmmm.... original image gone missing, here's a new old one

    That trail is so fun after the section of the technical climb you get that so sweet downhill. there is one perfect root between two tree's that you can just launch off. What a great trail.

    Old Skool

    Here is "Acquire" born on 2/14/02. One of the early Maverick American ML7 frames with the CNC'ed rear damper body. These were mostly Root Beer anodized at the time, but mine is a much lighter shade, closer to a Root Bear Float. Still running XTR 950 include e-type front derailleur, which after much trial and error is perfectly set up and works flawlessly. Rest of the build includes Maverick SC32, Mavic 819 rims laced (tied and soldered) to Chris King (rear) and Maverick 24/7 (front), Thomson stem and post, Avid Juicy Ultimates and Easton Monkeylite SL handlebar. As is, weight is around 26.5 lbs., when I switch to lighter tires it drops down to 25.5 lbs.

    My ML8 Build

    Hardly as sick of a bike as many of the rigs on this forum, but it's what I could come up with on a limited budget! Used '06 frame ($500) built up with mostly new, but some used, components. Great ride so far, I just put on the 30" wide bars today, testing them out tomorrow. Longer stem too as my previous stem was too damn short for steady climbing.

    I'm really impressed with how this bike handles everything I've thrown at it so far. I may be an ML8 lover for life, let you know after this summer and a fall trip to Moab.

    It's a 2.25" Fat Albert, and it only just clears the swingarm as it is.

    Also, it's about the single worst rear tyre I've ever used, it's absolute pap, and is about to be consigned to ebay, never to return... I've had semi slicks that offer more grip under both breaking and climbing, let alone cornering!

    Here's yet another pic of my bike, having just been prepared for racing the Singletrack Weekender this weekend just gone...



    Rear tyre wise, any suggestions? Thinking maybe 2.2" Rubber Queen, but I want something fast rolling too you see. My default fast rolling rear tyre has been a 2.3" Michelin Dry2 (which are actually much grippier than their name suggests too), but really I do want an all year round tyre in honesty.

    Maybe a Small Block Eight. Ultimate XC Racing tire with lots of speed and grip. Well suited for a variety of riding conditions. .

    Wow where has this thread been all my life!!

    pigdog I think our bikes were separated at birth.

    My fork is a rock shox lyrik air. You can't tell by looking because I had to replace my lowers after about two weeks, and rock shocks does the same lowers for multiple models so no decals. The drive train is a shimano alfine 11 internal hub. Much better then detailers but still not quite perfect i'd say.

    --- no photo available --- I have to edit this post and add the photo from another computer, sorry.

    Proud to join the Maverick family! It's 2natime's fault- i rode his "Inky"

    Oh, happy happy, joy joy! I've been gagging for one of these for some time now after riding 2natime's "Inky". You've got to ask yourself: "Am i worth it?" -the answer is always and clearly -YES! Actually, I got a stellar deal on the frame in the box and Just added a new fork-R.S. rev TI cuz'... that frame deserves it. The rest is high end stuff from my- now for sale- Intense Spider. In all fairness, the Spyder is a great bike but the bushing issues are a hassle if you hammer it and well, it just aint a Maverick. The nice part is, as I travel a lot for work, I can separate the front and rear triangles and it packs easily into a hard travel case that stays under the airlines baggage limits. I still tell them, like 2natime, that it is "art supplies" in case of fussy/unhappy counter people. It's not a lie as these things are definitely art and it supplies me with massive grin factor. Just got back from my second ride on it and man is this thing sweet. VPP is nice but not anything like this. It's so cool not to need lockout in the rear to stand up and hammer. Feels flawless to me! and that's what matters, no? now how do i add a picture of "Somoa" ...my birthday present,my precious.
