    Got a RockShox Vivid R2C coil shock on the Mutz. Awesome stuff. Cranking up the compression dial is highly effective for lockout as well. Thumbs up from me.

    Yeah, I have done a few rides with my new CCDB coil CS with valt spring. It completely changed the feel of the bike vs the worn out CCDB Air CS that was on it. Cost me 9oz but the bike feels so much better now. Loving the lockout on the climbs and flat trail.

    Cool-blue Rhythm Mutz FTW

    Mother of God i love my Mutz!
    It's a black used demo from Likin Bikin Amherst.
    The icing on the cake is it's got Atomik Carbon rims on Hope Hubs.
    Way too much fun!
    it's a freaking Magic Carpet Ride!
    i'm still in disbelief that I own it.

    I ran the Bluto for a winter and a whole summer then switched to the Mastodon and I couldn't believe the difference. I want happy adding a pound but it was worth it.

    Hey crew,

    I've been rolling w/ a Mutz since summer of 2016 - Only rode it like 2x times in 26x4 mode then was underwhelmed with the Bluto and swapped it to 27.5+ ~ swapped to a coil this summer and its been pure magic.

    I'm running a Fox Float Boost 27.5+ that'll clear a 26x4 and the current+ setup with room to spare.

    Curious to know if anyone is running a 27.5x4 on their Mutz w/ success? (e.g. what'll this frame clear?)

    I was planning to build another set of hoops for it, so I can do the 26x4 thing on 55-65mm rims, but if I could squeeze a 27.5 x 3.8 or 4" on the WTB scrapper i45s that'd be a bit cheaper...

    Any insight is greatly appreciated.
    Thanks
    Brian

    @Chargecooker,

    Love your drive amigo!!! I want to set my homie up for success, as well as myself when summer rolls around. I'm a little concerned that 3.8-4 on a 45mm rim could cause some problems...

    Looking for some folks who've taken the plunge and succeeded before I commit those tens of dollars I earn every day ;-)

    Stoke on

    Suspension question, i just realized my shock is in the botom of the two adjustments for 5" vs 5.5" and that i have no idea which the bottom hole is, be it 5" vs 5.5". And how will switching effect ride characteristics and shock pressures between the two. Any help would be appreciated!

    From Foes:

    "The top hole will be the long travel hole at 5.5 and the lower hole will be 5."

    Dunno as far as characteristics go. I've only ridden mine at 5.5".

    Unfortunately the 27.5 x 4.0 Vanhelga doesn’t fit in the Mutz, at least not with the 65mm wide Nextie rims.
    It’s about 1/2” too tall.
    For now running this set up till I get a 27.5 x 3.8 Minion for the rear.

    Is it the 29er or the older 27.5+ fork? How close does the 27.5x4 Van Helga come to hitting? More pics please.

    It’s the 27.5+ fork. More than 1/4” from the tire to the arc. The tire only measures 3.65” wide, so no issues there.

    Yes, that is mine. See more pics above.

    DT Swiss hubs with Raceface Arc 40 rims with Maxxis High Roller II in a 27.5x3.0. This is my favorite setup so far for summer riding in the alpine.

    Foes Mutz

    I'm thinking about putting my Mutz 150 a set of 29+ wheels with SunRingle Duroc 50 rims, I think they would fit in behind.

    Yes on the DHF / DHR combo. I tried the 27.5 x 4.0 Vanhelga but it was too tall for the rear and didn’t fit.

    Random Question...

    I have a 2016 Mutz... This is the first season I've actually ridden it on snow, as it's stayed back in the midwest during winters and... its wicked fun on - - - all the things -

    I have been contemplating selling it b/c you know... gear-rich / cash poor, but given the versatility and smiles per mile -I'd rather cash in on experiences at this point and keep raging.

    Curious about the Mutz 150 - Does anyone know if I could just buy a new rear triangle/ linkage to enhance the all around shred-ability?

    Much love to the thread and beta y'all bestow
    Mahalo

    So...what are the widest tires that the Mutz can accommodate for each wheel size? And is the same for both the classic frame and the 150mm?

    I ran Dillinger 5s on Holy Daryls and they were close to the chain on the 1st generation. I had to run a OneUp chainring. It worked perfect.

    So...safe to say that a 4.6 tire on a 80mm rim will fit?

    And is the max for a 29” rear wheel really just 2.35”?

    The Mutz is big. Go medium.

    Im 5'9" and the medium feels borderline too big. I run a 50mm stem.

    What’s the max rear tire size for a 29er wheelset on the Mutz? And what rim width are you using?

    I realize this question is several months old, but in case anyone is curious, 29x2.8 Terrene McFlys on 45i rims, fit in the Mutz no problem.

    That is a beauty! Your pic has me thinking a 150 is my huckleberry... especially with the frame prices now dropped to $1999.

    I think it's his own using a Bosch motor. Foes made the one-off frame for him.

    For those of you running a Mastadon what travel length are you running?

    I just ordered a Mastadon Pro EXT 120mm but I'm having it setup for 140mm.

    Is the Mutz ok with it at 140mm or should I dial it back?

    Thanks for the help everyone!!

    Got my first ride in on some rooty rocky New England single track, first impressions, holy amazeballs Batman! I'm beyond happy with my intial setup, good God the Mastadon Pro isn't even in the same solar system as my Bluto rct-3. And I did the shake down run with the aluminum 650b+ wheelset I can only imagine how it'll be with carbon 26 fat wheels. I'm one happy camper!!

    Just measured my Mutz, doubling the distance from center of Axel to the two frame points radius is a diameter of 768mm by my measurements. According to the website I looked at (link below) 29x3 is 774.4 but 29x2.8 is 764.24 and verified by hobine with the McFly's. So the answer is 29x2.8 is the Max for a 29+ on my 140mm Mutz.

    Still pretty motivated to push the wife for a set of 29x2.8 wheels

    Thought this would be worth sharing.
