    So i got me a brand new Maverick SC-32...

    This week i saw a brand new SC-32 on ebay.uk (according to the ad the guy has 10 (!!) of them at a realy nice price as well, so go for it !)
    And since i had a few bucks that were burning a hole in my wallet, i ordered one.
    I figured i would only regret it later on if i didn't.
    And i also ordered the 29" conversion kit.
    I am stll in doubt as to buy a maverick 24/7 or a Hope Pro2. (probably the Hope)
    But my question is : do i need a extra spacer under the face of my headset to prevent the tire from hitting the downtube ?
    I recall reading something like that one day, but i cant seem to find that info anymore...

    Tnx !

    Get the maverick hub, hands down the best one for the fork. The fork and the hub were designed together. The axle goes all the way through and i think it is even fatter in the middle. Also it is a wider spaced hub. Try to find the side by side pics, they exist somewhere on here.

    I needed a spacer for my mav/pug/king combo.

    If you have a Pugsley frame you need a head set with 5mm of extra stack height on the lower race such as this one :-

    Thanks !
    That was the info that i was looking for.
    I already have a Chris King headset for the Pugs, but i cant seem to find one that has the extra height.
    And if i press one in, can i still use the original fork without any major changes/problems ?

    As for the hub, i still have to make decision about that....

    You can buy a Chris King Base Plate with +5mm.

    It's offered as "Spare Parts".

    Look at this thread first. I dont how much as changed with hope or king, but be careful.

    Okay, thanks for the warning...
    I was planning on the Hope so i could have multiple axle options.
    But now i guess i will be looking for an 24/7 here in the EU.

    I went with the Mav hub for mine, ended up being a little tight on the brake calipers but with a 185mm disc its ok. The 24/7 hub is quality and worth the extra jack plus its made to work with the fork drop outs.

    As far as the the head set goes I reused my Cane Creek S1, took a bit of experimenting to get the shims right.

    The Hope hubs have an adapter available.

    To bad....
    It wast on a old stock list and has been sol a few weeks ago...
    And the price was $81 (i made a mistake)

    But they were kind enough to give me another company to go and bother.
    And the good part is that they are even cheaper over there, just $74 !
    But they were also low on stock...
    And since the price is so low, i want 2 of them.
    I have send them a mail asking them how many they still have left, if they have more than 2 i will post it here.

    Any reason you guys are going after the Trialtech rims? There are lots of trials rims available that are cheaper or lighter.

    Does the ERD match up with a particular fat rim?

    At 47mm? (In or around 50mm width, a replacement part for the Not Available Speedway 50mm UMA rims)
    Robust?

    I choose these ones because there are a lot of good thing written about them, and they look strong.

    Well, the Pug has been built and the fork is converted to 29er mode.
    I got myself a nice little Pocket Shock from topeak.
    But i lost some of the oil from the fork while installing the 29er kit.
    The guide from Maverick mentions 5W(T) oil, is this the same as 5W30 motor oil ?
    Because i went to 3 bike shops and none of them had any shock oil, and there is a carshop around the corner that sells all kinds of oil, but they never heard of 5W.
    And i have no luck finding good info on the net.

    And while i had the fork disassembled, i shoved some 50mm heatshrink tubing for big cables over the forklegs.
    It seemed like a good idea to do this while the fork was laying in pieces, so no pressure could build up from the heat from the hot airgun.
    It's not as smooth as i hoped, but i like these looks more then when it had the old blue color.
    (and i still have to trim the edges)

    nice!

    I have thought about finding a sc32 (shoot me the link in dm if the seller still has a few new ones) and lacing in a tout terrain schmidt dyno...

    but that gets spendy quick

    The guy i bought mine from, has sold them all.
    And a lacing in a dyno is not going to work because of the 24mm axle.

    Oh yes, yes it will...

    you just have to know where to get the right one:

    We now have the Schmidt SON28T dynamo hub to fit the Maverick SC32 fork.
    from: Peter White Cycles

    manual: http://www.peterwhitecycles.com/Down...sch_rev1.3.pdf

    You would have to tap a small grounding hole in the lower (unless you buy the complete fork from PWC)...

    g


    p.s. I didn't say it was cheap...

    Oh yeah, now i remember seeing them somewhere on the forum before.
    But i think that it's a lot of money for a dynohub.
    But i do like the quick-release clamps that are used fot the pannier carriers.
    I wish i could find 2 fitting QR clamps that will fit my fork, so i can mount a small carrier.

    No. You need 5WT shock oil. Check the motorcycle shops.

    The carshop also sells some motorcyle stuff as well, but they could not tell me the difference because the never heard of 5W oil.
    But they were speculating it could be the same, but in a different bottle to jack up the price.
    Tomorow i will go to another shop that has the 5w for sure, but i figured i might try the ones closer to my home first.

    Thanks for the info !

    Stuff to look for is shock oil, not a motor oil. Check with an ATV or motorcross shop.

    5W-30 is multi-viscosity, which means that when it is cold it is 5 weight, but when it heats up (as inside an engine) it goes to 30 weight. 5W shock oil will be straight weight, ie. 5 weight all the time. Each type will also have additives and other chemicals added for its intended purpose (suspension damping or engine lubrication).
    If that shop didn't know the difference between suspension and engine oil, I would be careful dealing with them on anything else.

    The guy at the carshop is in his late 50's early 60's and they do not service cars or motorcycles.
    They just sell a lot of stuff and can order even more.
    This could be one of the reasons that he didn't knew what i wanted.

    Tomorow i will get the right oil from a shop on the other side of town that i didn't feel like going to today.
    I generaly do not like to go there, cause a trip to them always ends up costing me more than i want.
    But this is because i always get home with more then i intended to buy.

    Thanks you all.
