    Boost Spacing for 27.5+

    I know some guys are already making the Mutz into a 27.5+ bike, but I would like to see the F or the FXC bike get some boost spacing...

    What are other Foes rider's thoughts?

    For me it seems an unnecessary expense for the builder and rider to gain 6mm of frame width, I've owned 4 Foes and tested 3 others and never noticed any flex, even in the old Prolite XC. What I have noticed a little is heal rubbing on stays, which can only get worse with wider spacing.
