    Not really, one could of course do custom. I remember asking Ethan if I could stick an ml7.5 rear on a palomino, but he said it would not bolt up.

    I have an ML7, 7_5, and Durance. I swapped some of the rear triangles and don't remember a problem. The dimension from the front mono bolt to the pivot bolt is the same on all of them. The angle looks the same.

    I have a brand-new Palomino linkage cluttering up the garage.

    Bought a Palomino frame on closeout and did the Maverick upgrade link from the start.

    If anyone is still looking for Palo bushings or the linkage, I can totally help out. PM for details!

    Hello all. I am looking at purchasing a used Palomino but am afraid to after reading this thread. Did anyone find a solid resolution to stock parts and/or the Maverick link?

    I have a bunch of Palomino parts and frame halves. PM me if you are looking for some stuff.

    To the OP, developing slop over time is normal. If you have slop then just put in a new set of top hats per the Klein Tech Sheet on the matter. Don't cheat the process, so yes that means buying Loctite 680 is necessary.

    I'm confused. Does Trek still sell replacement bushings? Are the Monolink upgrades still available (I thought they weren't but just above 02_NRS said he just got a brand-new one)?

    I'm looking to get my Palomino back on the trails but won't throw good money at it if there are no longer maintenance parts available.

    Thanks in advance!

    I compared new bikes, also rode a maverick monolink, liked it so decided to rebuild my Palomino. Ethan at Maverick was able to find a Palomino monolink for me with new bearings, etc., I'd try him first. Trek does not sell the bushings any longer but you may find some out there. ebay. If you go with the monolink though you won't have to replace bushings again ... problem fixed.

    Great, thanks. I emailed Ethan but maybe I'll call him too. I've also emailed Trek's customer service but I'm a little bummed that a bike with a lifetime frame warranty is evidently scrap after 10 years. I've barely ridden my bike since '06!
