    Maverick Duck Forx

    Thoughts?

    I was looking at the DUC32, but I don't know anyone who has one around here. They make a Hope Pro II conversion kit for my frt. hub.

    I like that they're only 3.5lbs with a TA...I don't like that it's air sprung. I'm possibly going fork shopping next spring. I read a review on it in MBA. They said it was too squishy and blew through its travel too quickly for aggressive riding. To me, a fork that's too squishy just needs a little more air, so I don't know why this was an issue.

    Is it a decent all mountain fork? It doesn't have compression / rebound adj?

    I AM a fork up.

    Not quite the rave review I was hoping for.

    Thanks

    I'm seconding the recommendation of a pike. The maxle seriously makes life easier. I'm regretting selling mine.

    It always seems to come back to that freakin' PIKE. I guess I'm going to seriously consider it due to the rash of wonderful reviews I keep hearing. It's about time I bite the bullet and add 1/2lb to my bike and quit crying about it. The 20mm does sound nice. I did notice a little flex on my last ride with my Vanilla. I hadn't really ever noticed it before, but I'll probably feel it all the time now.

    Get. The. Pike. And the Hope 20mm adapters. Very, very well worth the slight bit of extra weight.
