    My Maverick ML7 was stolen the night before last (21 June) from inside my house in Bristol. Nothing else was taken including other bikes.

    Obviously the most distinctive thing about this frame is the curved seat tube & also there’s the bikes individual name “Ozzy” on the head tube badge.

    Since this pic was taken many components have been changed –

    most noticeably Fox 100X Front Forks, Race Face Chain Set, Sram X9 Gears

    Avid Ultimate Disc Brakes & Hope Hubs with Mavic 717 rims, Schwalbe

    Nobby Nic Tyre on front & Bontrager Mud XC Tyre on rear.

    Please look out for it & let me know if you do!

    Cheers

    Matt

    Bad news, but there aren’t that many ML7s around, so good luck getting it back. This won’t help you and you may know it already, but I’m pretty sure that Ozzy was originally a shorter travel Reposado, which was tested by Guy Kesteven in What Mountain Bike – or it might even have been Maximum Mountain Bike back then.

    It was built super light and very fast. After he’d finished with it, I’m pretty sure Sideways converted it into an ML7 – an inch more travel – and sold it on eBay.

    I borrowed it from Guy for a couple of weeks and it’s the reason I bought my own ML7, which I still have.

    Anyway, fingers crossed that you get it back.

    Bad luck Matt. Where abouts do you live? Have you contacted http://www.stolenbristolbikes.com/

    BWD you are right about the history of the bike- I nearly bought it but ended up with “Twinkle” instead. Ozzy’s head badge also designates it as a Reposado- IIRC It’s marked “REP”

    Hi Shaggy & BWD

    Yes, you’re both right. That’s the Bike. I bought the frame from the guy who bought it from Sideways. The rear triangle had been replaced which I think then gave it the same rear travel as an ML7.So I suppose it’s a ML7/Reposado Hybrid. But it was still light & fast…

    & Yes, I’ve been in touch with http://www.stolenbristolbikes.com/

    I guess you couldn’t hope for a more individual bike for people to look out for.
    I’m nowhere near Bristol, but if I ever see a black Maverick, I’ll be sure to check the headbadge.
