    Blackspire Stinger E fit a ML8?

    Hey does anyone would know if the the Blackspire Stinger E with a front derailleur will fit an ML8 frame instead of using the standard Maverick D mount and R773 combo?

    Cheers

    Can you get a pic of the other version? I don't know, but one might be able to tell (or drill a hole at the right spot to modify it).

    Cant find a pic but it is the same as above but without the ICSG holes.

    Do you think you would still need to bolt it to the d-mount hole?

    i imagine this is designed to be stable enough on its own.

    maybe you have to be more worried about interference between the d-mount thread and the front der locating assembly on the guide that prevents you mounting it at all ...

    Yeah i think so to, maybe have to bust out the Dremel.

    I have emailed Maverick as well to see if they would know.

    KDM,

    Did you e-mail Maverick or Ethan? In case you were not aware, Maverick is no longer in business. I rather doubt anyone is monitoring any e-mail sent to their website. Now Ethan, who used to work at Maverick, is likely to know; I would suggest you contact him if you haven't already.

    Don't forget the cable....

    You should definitely reach out to Ethan, he has helped me with front derailleur fitment issues/questions. His email is mavericksuspension@gmail.com.

    Also, remember to take into account cable routing requirements - not sure if what is pictured is top or bottom pull, but that may make a difference, too. If the cable noodle on the Monolink is not properly aligned you'll have another problem besides fitment.

    I just emailed Maverick from their website. They replied stating it would not fit. Shame though i would still like to try.
