    The NEW 2009 Hard Anno!

    Yeah, the grey colour is WICKED! Bolder graphics, still clean, new colours for the alloy bits on the dapmper, can't see it, but the rebound knob is numbered, and the air fill is up high!

    Oooh, very nice!

    If the rebound knob is numbered, does it still have more than 360* of rotation?

    I wonder if I can swap one of my spare dampers in for this new style for a mild fee.

    Yup, 5 is going to be even tighter! I would love to have one of these new ML8's, but 2 ML8's, 3 Mavericks, 4 Duc's, a Fisher, and now a Norco, well, not sure if I can find room. My bike shop is getting tight. Haha.

    Have they switched to real stickers yet?

    Or are they still using the heat transfer ones?

    I am getting tired of the ghetto look on my ML8, Chris at Maverick said "soon" for real stickers a few months ago, but I am still waiting , I am about to get custom stickers made now that I have all the logos in Adobe Illustrator...

    These do not feel like the vinyl transfer versions. The hard anno finish does not like to "accept" stickers for some reason; after I trashed a few shop versions

    I don't know, I've been using some Racers Tape on my ML8 since I go it and it has never peeled off. It actually really depends on the type of adhesive that's used (I once had a long conversation with a sales rep from a industrial sticker company and you'd be amazed by the technology that goes into the adhesives!), application, etc...

    Wheres my stickers dude!

    I thought I'd chime in on this. We are going to have sticker kits available soon! Really
    We want to control them as best we can to have consistent imagery and quality.
    Although we cannot tell someone, anyone ,not to do something, we appreciate that you allow us to do this from our end. We are so small that we would like to keep our image as best we can for replacement decals. We have not had the best physicals decals in the world but great graphics and again would like to control the replacements. And we do understand the need for replacement graphics to keep the bike fresh. We are also looking into this for the next round of frames and forks. Suggestions are always welcome. Thanks a lot guys, appreciate the patience. Might be a few weeks away, but we're gonna have them.
