Maverick ML7 Retro Full Suspension Frame Complete With Maverick SC32 Forks. Paul Turner, the founder of Rockshox forks, set up Maverick in the late 90's/early 2000's so he could manufacture a frame perfectly matched to his optimum fork design.

The ML7 frame launched in 2001 was the result. A 4 travel XC / trail bike which achieved 4 and 5 star reviews in every test. Perfectly accompanied in this case by the revolutionary upside-down RC32 forks with 5 of air travel complete with its own super stiff 24mm front hub design with 6-bolt disc mounts.

This particular example was made on 16 June 2004 (the date is nicely engraved on the metal head-badge, along with its builder name: Kiltel). It's in great condition with the custom Easton AL6069 tub set flawlessly welded and finished in a textured black anodising with zero dents, cracks or scrapes.

There are a few scratches and small areas of cable/rub here and there but nothing more than surface deep. The forks are similarly excellent, equipped with a lockout and, as with the custom Fox rear shock, compress and rebound smoothly with no looseness or free-play. The bearings in the 32h front hub are silky smooth, as are those in the integrated FSA headset. The Maverick seat post QR is a thing of beauty and the E-Type XT M760 front mech is included. It's a size Large and the actual frame dimensions are as follows, with forks and shocks uncompressed.

Seat tube centre to top: 54cm / 21.25. Top tube centre to centre actual: 52cm / 20.5. Top tube centre to centre effective horizontal: 56cm / 22. Head tube end to end: 14.5cm / 5.75. Fork steerer length: 21.5cm / 8.5 sufficient for 30mm of spacer above or below the stem. Frame mass: 2840g / 6.25lb Inc seat post QR and front mech. Fork mass: 1795g / 3.95lb. Hub mass: 250g Inc thru axle. In short this is a masterpiece of design and an important piece of balanced full-suspension MTB history in great condition ready to ride or just look at! Each tube will be will be protected with thick new. Finally, if you are thinking of a bike fit, why not visit my Precision Cycle Fit website shown on the last photo.
