    DUC 36 carbon updates??

    Hello,

    any actual news regarding the DUC 36 Carbon?? No informations or pictures in the past weeks and month!!
    I would like to upgrade my ML8 with a new fork. At the moment I really think about the new Fox36 180cm . I don´t want to wait another year.

    In spring I heard rumors about a cpl.new frame platform from Maverick. Can we expect something new for Interbike??

    Cheers !!!

    GO with the FOX. FIt cartridge and Kashima coating are the bees knees.

    I'll bet the Duk 36 gets shelved.

    So is the 30 hour oil change for the lowers, the super inconstant anodizing on the stanchions that wears out within 100hours and FOX says it's not under warranty, yup.

    Guess you prefer every 20 hours on your DUC. Actually fox is 50 hours. ALso how many times have your seals just happened to pop out? I've seen many a Maverick spit its seals.
    If you ask me FOX is the most trouble free.
    To each their own. Where's the Duc 36 anyway? you'll never see that fork. even if you do it will be plagued with soo many sissies your head will spin.
    One last thing. If you do have an issue with fox at least you know they'll be around to fix it. Personally I question if Maverick will even be around very long. I bet they go out of business soon.

    Maverick = Junk.

    Just my narrow minded opinion.

    For the service on my 3 Mav forks, it's super fast, easy and painless. Fox casting/bushing oil on FIT damper FOX forks is 30 hours then add 100 hours for a full overhaul. Seals popping out, Yeah, thanks for taking us back to 2004 with a batch of bad air tubes and black seals. If it happens now, it's mostly due to a lack of preventative maintenance work.
    Didn't ask You, you are spewing misinformation.
    Rock Shox is the most trouble free, best warranty and easiest IMPO.
    I have seen the DUC36, rode it, helped with prototyping/feedback etc. It is on the way.

    You can troll somewhere else

    Rs most trouble free??!!! That's hilarious. When I worked in a shop it was second only to maverick as most problematic.
    Rs does have a very good customer service history.

    And finally as far as the SUK36 goes, I'll believe it when I see it.
    Probably just another round at interbike with no production in it's future. How many years has it been prototyping? Like 2-3? Dewd. Market already passed it by.

    Yeah, damn funny is the last 5 years of RS product do not have worn anno, puking seals like almost every FOX that comes through my hands. Before the new chassis, Reba, Revlation, etc RS products were and still are poor to say the least.

    I love my DUC! How long has it been around now,7 yrs? And you still cant find another 6" travel fork thats as plush,stiff and oh yeah,weighs less than 4lbs
    As far as reliability/service is concerned,I have yet to have any problems,and changing out the oil is a 5 min process,even for me! Add in the tunability(rear shock as well) and this fork is still ahead of the game.
    There's a reason Maverick riders Lubs their rides........I have yet to meet another Mav rider out on the trails who didnt absolutely dig their Mav!!

    Lets see my dad has a DUC, I have a DUC, my wife has a DUC, my brother has an SC32 and the maintenance is pretty minor even given that the forks are forever old. Only one seal popping out event in all their histories when my brother was going off large >6 foot jumps on his SC32 and destroyed his rear wheel in the process, while the seal did not even pop all the way out, but just moved a bit.

    In the same time period fox, rock shock, and marzochi have come and gone. Still if a person wants to pretend I guess they are free to. To be honest though repairing the fox stuff hasn't been to arduous either. As to the business prospects, well who knows about that. I certainly hope Mav stays around since they have better products.

    Hello,

    I had contact with Ethan. The DUC 36 shown on Eurobike should have the final graphics but not the right dropouts, leg guards and knobs. But it is a good sign that the DUC 36 is not dead and we can expect a great product.
    Ragetty: I like the graphics from the Eurobike fork much better than the logo on Mike´s DUC 36. Personal taste.

    i'm glad you at least you are honest about the limitations of your opinion....
    to each his own, but i have owned four, still have 3 of them. NEVER ridden anything i have enjoyed as much. only thing that would make it better for me would be a carbon frame, but that would be insane. a friend and i traded bike the other day, he has a full carbon epic. he was right, it is VERY nimble and quick....but only about 3 inches of travel. nice race bike, but not and all rounder by any means. he had raved on and on about how quick it accelerated. i'd have to agree with him. as much as it clearly pained him to say it (unsolicited), he commented about how the durance actually felt just as quick (as a 23 pound full carbon bike) that says it all to me. plus, it takes me minutes and hand tools to dial it and service it just as i like it!

    I know that it's pass the prototype stage already because I've seen stacks of fork in the pic ready to go a while back. Also every conversation I had with Maverick seem to indicate the short release since 2009, what's holding it up?

    Hub?

    Look at the hub in the last picture. I really have no clue, but are they trying to get away from a proprietary hub, to attract the masses? I would like to see the fork with a standard 20 mm through axle with the flexibility to go 26 or 29. I could interchange wheels to my hearts content. I really like my 7.3 with the Duc, but it is truly in a corner by itself. The rider that would like the Duc would be a tinkerer, a frame-changer. To sell a bunch, the fork needs to be flexible in its fitment. I wonder if this is what is holding it up.

    I have many wheelset that are 24mm from 4 different brand. Except the bontreger which I'm not sure all of the other would change to 20mm, 15 qr, or 9 qr hope, kings and i9. The only thing you have to do after swapping the axel is dish the wheel.

    My LBS said that Maverick is taking pre-orders for the 36! What is the final configuration? Specs, A-C? Details please!

    Correct, Chris sent us an email last week, the pre order for the first batch of 36 carbon (only 300 forks) will be open soon.
    I discussed the technical details with Ethan ...
    Maverick is not dead, new frame (29er coming soon), and new stuffs in 2012 ....

    300 forks is way to small though. They need to get the duc32 back into production I mean it is still one of the better forks a person can buy after all this time.

    Yeap! 300 is such a small number of fork to go around, hope they have the next batch up and going too.

    The DUC32 will be back later ... a new version taking into account the ameliorations of the 36 ... and why not a carbon upper body Maverick is far from dead, full of ideas ... a new era is coming.

    So for those how know, what is the final spec? Thanks

    On the side note if Maverick bring back the Duc32 I wish the have the XS crown may be inverted since small is already flat, so it would fit more frame with 90-110 Headtube length. Some of the 29ers and small frame does not have long HT. I know I had a hard time with my small Mojo and small Rip9. Some of my friends ran into the same problems as well.

    Saw one today on top of Dakota Ridge. He asked how I like my TALAS 180. I told him it's great but I'd been wanting a DUC 36 and couldn't wait any longer so I got the Fox.

    Duc36...

    Well nice to finally meet you Lelandjt. You actully saw 2 DUC36's up on DR. Andy, our engineer, and I we're doing some oil vicosity testing on the forks.
    I don't remember asking about your Fox 180 Talas, but this time of year riding DR can do funny things to your head! But i'm sure (your fork) is working well, rocketing down the slab Those guys do make nice stuff, they all kinda do! That's one of the reasons we went back to the drawing board, we have the structural part of the fork so dialed that the internals need to meet current riders demands as well as ours.
    Stay tuned-
    Stop by the shop any time Russ.

    I was hoping the unveiling was occurring. Ah well. It seems they have taken a page from id software of yore now. It is done when it is done. Then you cannot miss the release date at least.

    I was the guy on the new Scott Genius LT. The fork looked sweet and you guys were sure putting it through its paces. Good luck with it, maybe I'll be in the market for one in a couple years.

    That Scott looked very cool, it looked like a Voltage though, it had the coil shock in the main triangle? How do you like the ride?

    Must have been another guy. I met you guys at the first summit and I was waiting for my friend who rides my old Bullit. Here's the bike I was on, it would look pretty sweet with a DUC 36:
