    Need help with maverick sc32/maverick hub/speedway rim

    hi,
    I had a new maverick hub and new speedway uma II build by LBS. I tried to put it on the sc32 fork and it doesn't fit properly. As you can see from the picture, it's hitting the upper tube. Also picture is the left and right side of the hub. I'm not sure what the issue is. Maybe the LBS installed it wrong? I bought the fork used and had it sent in for 29er conversion and overhaul so I don't think it's any issue with the fork. I know there's plenty of people that have done this. Can you guys check your maverick hub/fork assembly and tell me what's wrong. thanks for your help.

    Take it (fork with wheel installed) back to your LBS... they didn't dish it correctly.

    yep, the dish is off

    If they re-dish keep an eye on your brake caliper clearance with the spokes.

    Unless there's some spacers on your wheel that shouldn't be there, or in the wrong place, the lbs did not build your wheel properly.

    Also if they are not accustomed to building with wide rims they may not have been sufficiently accurate with the early part of the build and then found it is hard to pull it into line.

    More likely, I'll bet they don't have the correct ends on their wheel jig for a Manitou hub and just winged it.

    If so, take the fork in too.

    This is a good reason to learn how to build your own wheels.

    Could be that their Park stand is off. Make sure you take the fork in too, so they can see that- otherwise they might throw it in the stand and say "looks fine".

    Park Stands must be adjusted over time, I've seen them out as much as 15-20mm.

    Thank you all for the response. I will take the wheel and the fork back to LBS. Hopefully, they can fix it and I'll post some picture of my Ti fatback build

    Your setup is exactly what I'm doing. I plan on taking the fork to the LBS when I ask them to build it. I'd like to hear your thoughts on the riding impression. As soon as I get my hands on the hub I ordered (grrrr...months) I will post up my pics/thoughts as well.

    They should be able to dish it right in the fork. Pretty easy to do. Loosen the close side nipples a 1/4 turn and tighten the other side 1/4. Repeat until centered. I wouldn't hate on the LBS for this yet.

    My LBS fixed my front wheel. Now I have another issue. I've installed everything and now I have brake issues. The rear seems fine. The front caliper is hitting the spokes. The brakes are Hope Pink X2 with 160mm floating rotors. Did my LBS did the front wheel wrong again?

    There's a number of members that I saw with Maverick 24/7 and SC32 fork with fat wheels and Hope brakes. What rotors size are you using? Is the 160mm too small?

    thanks.

    Because Maverick made their hub flanges as wide as possible (for wheel strength), the spokes hit some brake calipers when they are installed with a 160 mm rotor. They mention this in the manual for either the fork or the hub- I can't remember which. If you swap over to a 185 mm rotor, you'll probably be fine.
    Pretty rad looking bike, by the way.

    This is a girls bike, right?


    I had to go with a 185 disc and it was still close on the avid clampers.

    No, it's not a girls bike. It for me. This is my new girl
    I will try to install a larger rotor. Too bad Hope does make the pink rotor in 185.
