    Bluto on Reid Zeus?

    Has anyone put a Bluto on a Reid fat bike before? I have the Zeus, which I am really enjoying as my year-round bike, but I am finding my wrists taking a beating, especially later in the summer when everything is dry and hard, so I want to look at front suspension. The Bluto seems like the default choice. I know that I will have to get a new front hub with the fork, but I am wondering if anyone has done this? Are there any issues with geometry?

    I know that I am probably adding 75% of the original price on here, so that is a consideration, but I am curious if this is even an option for this bike, or if there are any other forks that would work?

    Thanks for you help!

    -Brian

    Well i don't have a Reid Zeus but thought I'd mention you might not need a new front hub, this guy makes spacers to convert 135x15 to 150x15... I haven't used it myself but worth checking out MTB Tools Adapter Set For a 15mm x 135mm Front Hub to a 15mm x 150mm Fork, Bluto | eBay

    As far as geometry goes the bluto can be had at 80, 100, and 120mm, I would assume at least one of those would work well on your bike.

    It's make sure the bike can accept tapered steerer tube. Its likely it will slacken the HTA a little but that maybe to your liking.
