    Couple questions:
    1)What year is your frame
    2)What is the length on the threads?

    Thanks much. I'm going back and forth with Foes sales dept and they don't seem to be real confident that one exists for my 2016 frame.

    Thx. I ordered one on eBay. The key was finding the right pitch (1.5) and thread length (15mm).

    I got a 29er wheelset and Minions for my longer rides. The VanHelgas are a bit much for my 50-60 mile rides.

    If you guys saw on Facebook a new Mutz is on the way.... it looks like there will be a long travel and a short travel version.

    I looked for more info, all I saw was a mention of 150mm travel.

    I liked my Mutz, but it needs some tweaks before I'd buy another:

    Shorter chainstays, 425-430
    Steeper seat tube angle, 75-76
    Head tube that's compatible with internal angleset
    Clearance for 29+ and 26 x 4.8

    These are minor tweaks other than the chainstays, which might not work without a rework of the yoke.

    Changing head tubes is easy, the larger head tube is already in use by the Mixxer.

    Seat tube angle might require a bent tube, probably need to lengthen the top tube.

    Can anyone please confirm (Picture if possible) that a 27.5 x3.8 Maxxis or Hodag's will fit in the rear on 45 mm rims?

    It'll fit, probably 3/8-1/2" spacing, not ideal for mud I ran a 29 x 3 Dirt Wizard which just cleared with a big 1/8" to spare.

    The Minion 27.5 x 3.8 is the same diameter as a Minion 26 x 4.8 which is a good inch shorter than a Minion 29 x 3.

    Weird... Why the exclusive short travel version? Correct me if I'm wrong but it's my understanding that the Mutz already has a short travel option by switching eyelet on the rear shock linkage and switching/adjusting front fork. Anyway I love my Mutz in 150mm with the Wren and Topaz shock. Wouldn't change anything. I need that 150 for the more aggressive summer riding.

    Maybe the poster doesn't know the Mutz has two travel settings?

    I prefer longer travel too, esp since I already have a hardtail fatty.
