    Wink The Blue Chubby Chick

    Finally got my 2013 9zero7 and I just finish building her last night.





    170mm rear end. Hope hub and 183mm rotor.


    King 44mm "inset" headset for steeper head angle (i did not work to well, still very slack)


    XTR 970 "STI" brake/shift levers on easton haven bars.


    Maverick SC32 fork.




    XTR brakes, hopefully they work as great as my old ones if not better.


    Cool details..

    Chainstay protector made from a "mister tuffy"


    I safety wire the grips so they don't move around when they get wet.


    With this technique that i developed (to use on Dakar motorcycles, etc) you only need to worry about a single "Pooky" thing at the very end but you can still insert it into the grip so no big deal.


    Things to do, make tubeless but so far no luck..

    Congratulations! That is a really nice looking build, do you have a total weight with the fork? I really like the grip trick, I had been wiring grips on for years, but then they introduced the lock-ons. I do like the Oury's since they remind me of my M/C racing days. I just picked up the same color 9:zero:7 in a medium today from my LBS (West Hill Shop), so it is particularly nice to see yours built up.

    Regards,
    Wardo

    Wardo no idea how much she Weight and sincerely I don't want to know since is not much more I can do about it..

    My self I don't like Lock-on grips since the plastic core takes about half the diameter and then the rubber layer end up been really thin..

    Ps: OURY grips rule

    I just spit up all over my keyboard thank you very much Safety wire pliers are the bomb for sure and have a pr in my box to make use of, i always used 3 wraps of wire for grips but yours may be an improved style.

    Was the SC32 readily avail or something you've had for awhile??

    You are very welcome, Yea safety wire pliers are the bomb, I got to use them a lot preparing race bikes (motos) but I wish I learn from a aircraft guy since does guys have tons of great tricks and fancy procedures.

    Yes I do believe my technique is a big improvement over the "four single loops"



    Was the SC32 readily avail or something you've had for awhile??
    I purchase the fork from a guy on pink bike, but so far is been kind of a nightmare, the steer tube was compromise when somebody took the lower race with a chisel or something that scratch the surface very deep, so I got my friend JP Morgen to make me a new steer tube something that Ethan the Maverick guru does not offer.

    Plus the damper rod is not working so I need to take the forks apart, but not from now since I'm dyeing to ride it..

    One of the nicest bikes I've seen in a while. Great job.
    Almost a shame to get it dirty.

    P.S....would have looked better with a Lefty.

    I don't see many of these is that due to Maverick being out of bizz or just the other brands surpassed them tech wise??

    Thanks, I don't care about mud or grime I tend to keep them really clean using this method.

    Sadly I was running out of money for the build so I had to sell my Lefty, someday I will have one again..

    I'm not to much into Blues or reds for that matter, but I do think this two work pretty well together, specially with the white contrast..

    Very nice build. Did you go with narrow tires so you could use the suspension fork or do you just prefer the narrower tires?

    A combination of the two, I got them used as a steeping stone until I figure out the whole riding experience, yes the fork is a limiting factor at the moment (I can always use it on one of my 29er's so no big deal) but I may go with something wider in the back..

    Nice build!
    I think wrapping the chain stay with some white tape would look cool but thats just me...of course it would get dirty quick lol.

    The maverick is a decent fork, better than rigid for sure!

    (and yes, they are out of biz now )

    Oh that is a idea, I do it if you offer to clean it after every ride...

    Thanks senor, you have great taste too..

    Just as a suggestion I find much better to run the shifter and brake housing to the opposite side from where they come from to avoid damage to the paint in the frame and also improve shifting do to the rounder routing,
