Mine is also an Iron Horse Maverick...just a year after yours (i believe yours is a 2006), mine is a 2007 model.

I actually had an IH Hardtail, and found the full suspension frame online, brand new. Transferred all parts and upgraded others in the process.

I want to upgrade to an air shock & fork (recon?) But am debating whether to do these upgrades, or just save up for a better bike like an IH Azure or Ibex Ignition....

nice bike !! nice color too

:thumbsup:

youre bicicle is top, it wold be very god to by a new Bike, i like very much the Santa Cruz nomad, The Banshee Pire, or a IH mkIII or a 6point. For me those ate the best for my trails, because they are strong and they feats good for DH.. is true that the air shock give a diference, the bicicle get up easYar and down too, it´s more conforteble, i just wanna put the air shock.

:thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

show your bike!!!

Thx, the MKIII is such an awesome frame but the 09 model is the last to have the DW link. Who knows what's in store for the 2010 model... The Azure is more my style, since I just ride trails, and don't do any extensive jumping. The 09 Bootleg is it's replacement, but doesn't have the DW Link suspension system. I'll have to test ride one, and if I like it, it'll be my next bike in a year or so...

Here's some more images of my bike (haven't taken any recent ones, so all of these are missing the rear derailleur and chain:

man ....

turner all mountain???

is best frame??

for xc agressive?
Yup Turner's are awesome, definitely one of the best. DW's contract w/ Iron Horse is over after the 09 frames, and is continuing their relationship with Turner :thumbsup:
If not Turner, go for an IH MKIII.

I'm still a fan of basic lightweight frames since I'm just a trail rider ;)

I am fâ from the irony horse , because they are resistant , & the link rear , is similar the from sunday of downhill , me like of be Dow strong ,

THE turnes frame here is 3000,00 dolar... here +/- (frame)

In my bike , I put an advance of guidon shorter , tires kenda 2,35 nevegal... (what it's too much good!) seats from calypso of all mountain , guidon tioga DH task force.

the TORA it's too much good , him descente flexible tem only one good regulating of return , she secures well into the rock garden , & on raise he has only one lock into the guidon q she helps well ,

the fox float too if she leaves well on the descents & on the raises her stay firm , kindnesses the pro pedal " , may I te speak what the minha irony never me she let on hand , best cost avail. feather than she does is xl (21") , the 19" for me to be exelente,

wath the length of your frame? 19" ?

minha fdr not coped 3 months. great care!!

embraces my friend!

ops!! my bike original : marzocchi mz3 comp, wtb tires,

the marzocchi in my opnião ,é well better than the rock shox tora. but the tora she profits by lock into the guidon., the marzocchi damping better on going down!!! the zocchi is more swet

I, too, have a Maverick (4.2). Only had a few chances to ride it before weather got cooler, leaves filled the trails, and my personal life just became too busy to ride these days.

(No action shots, as I am usually riding solo).

(Day my wife bought it for me)

You've got some nice upgrades to your bike as well! I normally ride a 17" frame, but this one is a small (15") and it actually has a good feel....like I can maneuver the bike better.

The Tora is a great fork and will probably be my next upgrade....either that or the recon.

Post more photos! :thumbsup:

Rear Shock

sciron4x4 said:
Rode today, and the rear shock ended up coming loose and unseated itself. Anyone else have this problem? Or could it be just bad original assembly from Dick's?
I think I know what you're talking about...But I think the shock's come pre-installed from IH factory, since my frame came with it pre-installed. It's a good idea to do periodic checkups on all bolts, to avoid stuff like this from happening.

Sucks, but just another reason to convert to an air shock :thumbsup:
