    My Mutz devolution?

    Picked up a 16 Mutz this past spring with the intention of making it my full time, 4 season trail bike.

    I've switched things up here and there to make it suit the type of riding we do here (mostly rocky, rooty single track with some downhill sessions thrown in for good measure). I live in northern Ontario Canada so it will see cold af temps and snow.

    The bike came with a bluto/topaz t3 combo. Love the rear shock but the bluto got swapped for a 150mm wren soon after I got the bike. But not before I took it to the mountain, all I can say is the bluto is not meant for anything resembling a dh run lol. The wren improved the overall feel of the bike and kicked the front end up nicely. Long story short, I ended up swapping the wren for a mastadon pro that I freaking love so far.

    The rest of the parts list is as follows.

    Spank spike stem
    King headset/BB
    Answer pro taper carbon bars, @ 780ish mm
    Odi rogue grips
    Wolf tooth dropper lever
    Gx 11spd shifter
    Saint 820 brakes with 203mm rotors
    Thompson elite dropper
    Titec el norte seat for some old school cool
    Xo rear derailleur with sram 9-42 casette
    Sram chain
    Raceface cranks/32t chain ring
    Diety black Kat/ crank bros. mallet e pedals
    Bontager jackalope rims laced to a DT 350 front and hope fatsno rear hub
    Maxxis minion 4.8 fbf and 4.0 fbr tires set up tubeless

    So far I am very impressed to say the least. This thing eats up the trial like a mofo and I have no issues keeping up to the normies on their 27.5s and 29s. Well no issues besides maybe the whole stamina/fitness thing that is..

    Gorgeous build! I just picked up a 19 rocky mountain Blizzard 20 and put on a sram eagle 12 speed and mastodon comp ext front fork, surly sunrise bars and a few other mods right away, I love the mastodon, next build is going to be a mutz frame up build. I don't know that they build a better bike than the mutz, like ever. Lol
