    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.
    Am I the only person running a Hope Pro II hub with their Mav fork?

    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.

    I know....
    I am entering month 5 already.

    The fork has just been delivered !!!
    But there is no manual in the box.
    Oh well, nevermind.
    I guess that i can download it somewhere, or else ask the people over here for a little help.

    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.
