I had heard that CK was going to produce a front hub for the Maverick 24mm front axle design. I assume that is it, but I had not been aware they were in production. Where did you get it?

That has to be one of the nicest Spots I have seen, have you weighed her yet? How about a ride review too while your at it?

A CK 20mm hub will adapt to the Maverik fork with the 24mm kit.

Sweet! The gray looks smooth, and if I'm not mistaken that's not a p-c'd spring, it TI correct? The CK/Mav combo is pimp, I've been eyeing a set of gold kings for awhile, maybe now's the time.

Now that dog will hunt! Spill the beans, who PC'd it and how much? Did you have the spring PC'd as well?
Hey Crash,

I had it PC'd at Olympic Powdercoating. It was around $130 including the stripping. The spring isn't powdercoated, it's ti. Like Soupboy said, I'm trying to do my part for the economy.

Hi John,

I think they started shipping them around the end of June/beg. of July. I got mine (as well as the fork) from The Path in Tustin, CA. Those guys rock.

wow...they sure did a good job! (well from the photo it looks like it). How is there color selection? what is the process?

thanks.

Hot Damn, that bike is probably worth more than the GDP of some third world countries.
That is one sweet ride, I'm glad mine doesnt look anywhere as nice or I would be afraid of riding it.

Tscheezy, you forgot how to read stuck up in Alaska :D -I think PC stands for powdercoating (pssst....he had it repowdercoated)

I had it repowdercoated. The guys at Olympic PC were a bit dismayed as to why I would want to strip off the shiny red and replace it with a matte dark grey, but they did a good job, and turned it around in about 7 working days.

I got the spring at 123.

They do a lot of bikes at Olympic, including a lot of Turners. They recognized the frame as a 5 spot right away. They did a good job masking off the pivot areas, but I did have to get the head tube and bottom bracket re-faced.

Check out their website here. I think they can do pretty much any RAL color, but some may take longer as they don't have them all in stock.

The bike has to be broken down completely (including removing all the bushings and zerks). I was very thankful for Tcheezy's Turner Tech site, it made disassembly and reassembly a breeze. I did have to get a new bushing kit and zerks from Turner, as it was almost impossible to take out the existing bushings without at least a little damage. I had the stickers cut out of a matte black vinyl at a local sign shop using the file that had been posted here earlier.
