    f275 with 29 fork and wheel

    Just wondering if i can turn my medium f275 into a mixer trail?
    Frame numbers seem similar on paper at least, maybe a 150 fork max would be ideal.
    My frame has a works minus one headset that gives a slack 65.3 (according to the ipad clinometer) with a 160 pike. I may have to take that one out.
    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, the only things that will change are HTA, STA, and BB height. Figure 10-15mm tire height difference.

    The real benefit of the Mixer purpose built is they adjusted the angles to match.

    I run my Mutz mixed, it's awesome, I won't go back.

    Thanks for the reply , might try sometime right now experiencing increased confidence with a change to 40mm internal American Classic smoking gun rims[sold as rims in our part of the world] together with regular shorty3c/dhf3c combo.
    So much traction descending and climbing.
