Maverick Speedball servicing – who?
Update:Posted 8 years ago
Holy flurking schnit $25 is a lot of money for 2 plastic rings and a tiny bit of brass
there's a guy called craig jackson on here who does servicing, i'll dig out his details and post them.
He does the best job he can but he has limited spares. he does have guide blocks but on mine for example the guide blocks and the black outer sleeve have worn, so replacing the guide blocks has helped but there is still considerable play there.
As someone says, pi$$ poor. I really like the freedom that these type of seatposts bring, thing is they all have faults it seems, and picking another is a gamble as you only know problems 12 months down the line and then the warranty is non existent and repair costs seem to be eye wateringPosted 8 years ago

Then just buy a Gravity Dropper and stop whinging.Posted 8 years ago
Mine's got a few mm of play either way dispite a full greasing last night (using the pdf here http://www.maverickbike.com/cms_images/file_17.pdf).
I don't mind the play too much but I know its just going to get worse if i don't sort it now with a new guide block, especially when the weather turns wet.

Guide block is only half the battle though, the black sleeve is obviously the other half, which is nigh on impossible to source in my size

Is this post relaible? My point is that it seems a major gample with in excess of £200 spent on something that you don't know how reliable it is/isn't? Plus its ugly as sin!!!Posted 8 years ago
I'm going to have to have a look at them. I seem to remember a review which said they were the best of the bunch. Do they have much play?
Its obvious that in a very short time parts are going to become almost impossible to get for my maverick.
I still find it incredible that a high value product like this can a) go out of production so quickly and b) after doing so spare parts become obselete so quickly. Is there not some law that spare parts have to be made available for a certain amount of given time? Or is that just cars?Posted 8 years agotrailwarriorMember
This is a while after this post was “active”, but I’ll post an update for the sake of others…
If you have a Maverick Speedball you should be able to use the crank-btoehrs joplin 3″ kit.
I just serviced mine (without replacing the bushings or the guide block) But my LBS assured me that the original joplin was exactly the same as the maverick. the changes only came with the 4″ adjustable post.Posted 7 years ago
