I recently got a hard ano ML8 frame as a gift. the shop moved all my parts from my Turner 5spot over to the ML8 including my DUC32. The bike looks and feels awesome. Very solid. Dont worry about the made in Taiwan deal. The build quality looks outstanding and Mav should make no apologies for it. I have not done a serious ride on it yet due to Christmas and weather. My only concern is the fast rebound. I am hoping it feels ok on the trail. Around the neighborhood the rear is extremely fast even at the slowest setting. So fast that it clunks at the end of the rebound as it tops out. Any comments or advise on how to slow it down?
