    Timberline Cycles posted a picture on their Facebook page of a new Foes called the Mixer. No details but I want Foes to take my money now.

    I was really hoping for a 27.5+ bike, but the concept of a 29 and 27.5 is interesting. Is it capable of holding a 27.5+ tire? Boost spacing?

    Try one!

    I've test ridden the Mixer and it absolutely shreds! Very responsive and nimble, easy to manual and wheelie. I was able to move it around in the air on the first ride. And, the rollover ability of the front wheel inspires confidence. It was both stable and agile. Very fast bike. I'd highly recommend you try one if you can . Cheers,

    Three time gold medalist motocross freestyle rider, Mike Metzger showed us his personal bike, A Foes Hydro H2, which he will be racing at the Kamikaze Bike Games in Mammoth Mountains. Foes Racing told us there is a possibility of Metzger’s bike being a small limited production model with Dvo suspension and custom graphics.2015 Interbike Speculation-imgl2064.jpg

    I rode my Mutz this past week with 29+ Dirt Wizards, it was an "interesting" ride, not really a practical choice for tight and technical terrain, certainly not what I'd call nimble. They were fast to accelerate on the down and great for flow. I'd call it a good Bend Oregon kind of wheel size.

    The Alpine looks like a more all around ride, I'd like to see some specs, but I'd suspect it's a slacked out Mutz/aka FX 275 with a wider swingarm. Anyone know the BB width??

    I am dying for some numbers on the Alpine, as I want to replace my wife's Trek slash with it. I need them to post the geometry, BB (probably boost), and shock length.
