    ML8 frame trade? Large for Medium ? Bueller?

    I adore this bike. Period. After a couple of seasons riding and then jumping on a few other rigs I'm suspecting that I may be on a too big frame. I'm 5'8" / 5'9" but long in the trunk with longer arms. My old Klein Palomino was a large (granted they screwed up the frames sizing there..) so I went for the Large. Feeling like the Med might be a better fit. 110% sold on this bike.

    Any potential large for medium ML8 trades out there ??? my frame is super clean, no dings / dents, recent full monolink service w/ new bearings and guides, regular rear damper and oil service. Maverick logo basically rubbed off one side of frame (??) grey ano color. Photo of bike is in the post your Maverick thread....might consider outright purchase of med size ML8 frame but prefer trade. I'm in Portland, OR for geographical reference.

    The monolink, shock and rear section are the same on all sizes. The front centre, top tube and head tube length determine the size. I have a few frames and have swapped rear sections to try different colour combos and rear shock set up.
