    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 doesnít fit in the Mutz, at least not with the 65mm wide Nextie rims.
    Itís about 1/2Ē too tall.
    For now running this set up till I get a 27.5 x 3.8 Minion for the rear.

    Itís the 27.5+ fork. More than 1/4Ē from the tire to the arc. The tire only measures 3.65Ē 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.

    My 27.5x3.0 Highroller2s fit with lots of room. My 29x2.3 minions fit too. I wanna try a 29x2.6 or 2.8.

    Yes on the DHF / DHR combo. I tried the 27.5 x 4.0 Vanhelga but it was too tall for the rear and didnít fit.
