    Modular fat/29" front fork and wheels package

    Spam pass.

    Start with a brand new, never been ridden Maverick SC32 suspension fork.

    10" of steerer tube.

    Dummy axle hasn't even been removed.

    Worst thing you can say about it is that it has some fingerprints.

    I've already installed the travel limiters, so it's ready to run with the fat front or the 29" wheel included.

    Then add in the fat front wheel. Maverick front hub in 32h, laced to a Speedway 70mm rim with DT Comp butted spokes and DT Prolock alloy nipples.
    <a href="https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/zB7QROvMigfcZuB2k26upA?authkey=Gv1sRgCJGuwKDHxt2ha g&feat=embedwebsite"><img src="https://lh5.ggpht.com/_Z3iU73Uw_T8/S1kzJYb6omI/AAAAAAAAS84/GzgTTvCvvYs/s800/IMG_9012.JPG" /></a>

    I created a rim strip out of alternating 'dots' of reflective and glow in the dark tape inside of each drilled hole. Then I backed them up with some Reflectix (on the inside--between rim and tube) to protect the tube from the nipple heads.
    <a href="https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/MJvQ42I6buprNwGecBKRuA?authkey=Gv1sRgCJGuwKDHxt2ha g&feat=embedwebsite"><img src="https://lh3.ggpht.com/_Z3iU73Uw_T8/S1kzLrObGOI/AAAAAAAAS9A/751cQtFiiq8/s800/IMG_9024.jpg" /></a>

    I installed a crisp new Endomorph tire and a (light) 2.6 tube. Ready to roll.
    <a href="https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/aLBGEBXRNhqBx9456uDOCg?authkey=Gv1sRgCJGuwKDHxt2ha g&feat=embedwebsite"><img src="https://lh6.ggpht.com/_Z3iU73Uw_T8/S1kzG9Yl0UI/AAAAAAAAS8w/lnWLgofPBd8/s800/IMG_9003.jpg" /></a>

    Lastly--the 'summer' wheel. DT Swiss 240s OS front hub in 32h. This has a DT/Maverick adapter axle. Knurling courtesy of Ethan Franklin @ Maverick.
    <a href="https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/YglCENTOn74FnmCPB4_L1g?authkey=Gv1sRgCJGuwKDHxt2ha g&feat=embedwebsite"><img src="https://lh3.ggpht.com/_Z3iU73Uw_T8/S1kzphs35gI/AAAAAAAAS-4/v9395LzOBUo/s800/IMG_9111.JPG" /></a>
    Should you ever decide you want to use this wheel on other than the Maverick fork, it can be converted to QR, 9mm thru-bolt, 15mm thru-axle, or 20mm thru-axle. Those parts sold separately.

    Rim is a Stans Crest 29" in 32h, laced with butted DT Comps and DT Prolock alloy nips.
    <a href="https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/I-I5rDuCuysDMpyKZf9qOg?authkey=Gv1sRgCJGuwKDHxt2hag& feat=embedwebsite"><img src="https://lh4.ggpht.com/_Z3iU73Uw_T8/S1kzsBMyp3I/AAAAAAAAS_A/QMG9O8OHp4E/s800/IMG_9112.jpg" /></a>

    I wrapped it with Stans yellow tape, inserted one of the NoTubes valves, slapped on a Bontrager Jones XR 29 x 2.2 Tubeless Ready tire, splashed in a little sealant, and pumped it up to 25psi. Beads seated immediately and it holds air perfectly.
    <a href="https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/U7x5KTrcTFpC8KHqyaKAvw?authkey=Gv1sRgCJGuwKDHxt2ha g&feat=embedwebsite"><img src="https://lh3.ggpht.com/_Z3iU73Uw_T8/S1kzmYI05cI/AAAAAAAAS-w/7IYJWcDiLYQ/s800/IMG_9109.jpg" /></a>

    Both wheels were hand built by me, right here in my shop. Stress relieved and tension balanced, they are 100% ready to ride.

    Assuming you could even find all of the parts (good luck!), the MSRP on this package would be over $1500 and that doesn't include tax or shipping.

    Get the whole package here for $1025 including shipping/insurance to anywhere in the lower 48.

    Canada or Alaska? Sure, just plan to spend more on shipping.

    No lowball offers--it's already a helluva good deal. Thanks.

    PayPal preferred. [email protected]

    Cheers,

    MC

    I don't suppose you have a Larry you could throw on there instead of the endomorph (or along with the endomorph for an additional cost)?

    That's what I was thinking.

    Are you suggesting that you've never come home from the store with a backup case of beer, or bag of chips, or carton of Nestle Crunch bars?!
