    Krampus and Maverick DUC32

    This may be of interest to some.....

    I fancied putting some bounce on the front of my Krampus and having seen the lack of clearance with Fox and other forks I thought that the DUC32 would be a good choice.

    I found and bought some on eBay for a decent price, and then got to adapting them.

    The first thing was the short headtube on the Krampus. The DUCs will take a minimum HT length of 130mm, and the Krampus is about 105mm with the headset. So I had to machine up an extension to the steerer nut. It was a tight fit (I knurled it) and it was epoxied in place. So far it seems pretty sturdy. But in future I may machine and tap a longer one piece steerer nut.







    I then checked to see how much I had to reduce the travel by to make sure the tyre cleared the crown. The standard Maverick travel reducers are 35mm long, but I machined up some 48mm long to take into account the larger tyre diameter.



    The fork had come with a 26" wheel on a Maverick hub, but luckily my existing wheel has a Hope Pro2 hub, and they do a Maverick axle. Having read on here of some problems people have had as the finish on it is smooth, I knurled the ends of the axle - a solution suggested by an ex-Maverick employee.

    Here are some pics of the bike built up. I've been out for a couple of rides so far, and it's working great



    Loads of room....





    And with my mates Karate Monkey for comparison....

    Looks awesome! Nice work! I'm thinking of going with the Manitou tower pro, I heard it fits.

    Nope, but pretty easy if you have access to a lathe.
    Happy to post diagrams & dimensions, etc.
