    I rode mine a few times in the winter. Plowed right through some nasty stuff. Just adjusted my shocks to he super stiff or "locked out" which they truly aren't anyway. I am curious to know how your carbon wheels ride on the mutz also :-)

    Hey Steve,

    The Mutz is a big deal. I ride mine for 3 month now all other California and not in the snow. I have the Stan's Hugo 52mm and run at 9.5 psi. It handle really good, is not bouncy and corner's crazy. The Rockshox Bluto is a little bit stiff but it you have the RL Damper it's ok. Since I got it I don't want ride my spe Enduro anymore. Too bad you are not in the Area I have 2 of them for demo.
    By the way I'm from Bordeaux.

    I heard about people replacing the damper of the bluto with the rct3 one. Unfortunately, i am not familiar enough with suspension fork internals to risk the replacement.

    Heheheeeee.....
    Hi Crazy Bear,
    Nice to see that someone put Hugo 52 on the Mutz, i think i'll do the same, but i still don't know which hub i'll choose....hope fatsno probably, easy to service and not very expensive, durable too i think.
    I won't be very far from you between the 04/27 and 05/06, i will have to work around Anglet, Biarritz and Bayonne.....unfortunately without my Mutz wheels, tires, cranks and brakes still to buy.....
    Maybe we'll meet in south of France one day......

    Cheers,

    Steve

    The Hope are a really good choice. Now I leave in Los Angeles so it's pretty fare but if pass by here let me know. I always have an extra Mutz ready to roll.

    Yes I screwed up the rct3 is the one to get, the RL is not good for this bike. Your shop should be able to do it.

    How does the Mutz performed so far? Anyone has experience to share? What's your bike weight?

    I've owned my Mutz for close to 3 months now. Have had the chance to try out everything from mud, snow, rock gardens, lose rock climbs. What specifically are you asking in terms of performance? The bike is more than capable of doing what you ask of it.

    Mine was the 1st on the west coast (the orange one from Foes web site) I upgraded the components and now it's down to 32 lbs. I got it for fun but after a few rides it became my main bike. I take it for epic rides in the desert, fast DH trails or XC rides. I'm not into Strava but use it for my business. I got PR on climb and DH on all my rides since the Mutz. The traction is ridiculous, I can clear steep climbs that I couldn't before. It jumps good it's poppy and the landing is always plush. I can go on and on for hours saying how great it is but it's like trying to explain how sex is good to a virgin. You have to try one.

    I'm currently just over 35 lbs. What did you change to get down to 32? Wheel set and tires? If so, which are you running?

    Not at all I run 9 psi the tire perform pretty good. The only down side is that, as I use my bike as an Enduro, the rims that are not made for this bent on rocks if I don't monitor my tire pressure and let it go to low. They are easy to bent back though, Stan's told me that there is a new generation of Hugos stronger. I got a set but I didn't try them yet.

    Very interesting. I'm trying to find an option for lighter wheel set for a heavier rider like myself. I found out I could shave close to 2 lbs by keeping the marge lites, and getting a smaller tire.

    Not yet. I had the chance to try some Dirt Wizards. They felt pretty good on the marge lites.

    Build can only start Sunday afternoon as my wife planned things for the weekend leaving me not enough time to finish before Sunday morning (our weekly ride) . Old bike is donor for some parts (brakes, gears, crankset), so I can start after the ride.

    How much travel do they set the rear shock at by default? 5 or 5.5"

    I got the DBinline but I now read that it seems to have a max weight... Not working well with air pressure set higher that 200psi. I will see the first rides and if needed, swap it out.

    Well, I've been riding my Mutz for a month now, so I figured I should finally post it up here. So far I've had it on the Slickrock Trail in Moab, some singletrack & urban trails around Colorado Springs, and some fun singletrack in Salida. What an awesome ride!

    First ride was more to tune air pressures in shock and tired. But after 100km on it, I can say it rides fantastic.
