    I think the shocks will have a different tune. Aside from that,
    I can imagine all that much will be different.

    This is what a dealer just told me, it sounds like totally different shocks (at least the end piece).

    "No, the bearing mount on the RS Super Deluxe cannot be easily removed. You would need to replace the damper body with a standard eyelet version which would require a rebuild."

    Bummer.

    I got recommended not to use a bearing mount due to possible clearance issue so my RS superdeluxe is a bushing Mount. I got 230x65 size though.

    Same here. When I bought my SuperDeluxe coil I was told by the RS rep the bearing version wouldn't work so I got the bushing version. Love it! I do however know a guy who has the bearing version on his XL Capra and says he hasn't had a problem with it...

    Been doing some experimentation with different wheel sizes. I ran 29x2.6 front and 27.5x2.8 rear -- high flip position -- for about a month. This combo wasn't great. I could have maybe tweaked some things but the front was just too high and running a 44mm offset fork the steering response was poor.

    Before retreating back to 29's I decided to run 27.5x2.8 front and rear just out of curiosity (pic). To my surprise it felt.... pretty awesome. The bike is def lower but manageable (measured ~340mm bb height). With that low bb turn in and cornering felt great. Traction was immense. Steering feels much better to me with 44mm offset fork in this setup than with the 29s front and rear I had on before.

    Trading a bit of roll over invincibility for agility and fun....I may run it this way for a while. Didn't expect that! Anyway nice to know it's possible to mix it up if you want.

    Anyone with a 180 mm fork? How did it work for you? I am on 170 but want to try with higher front end. Currently got 40 mm bars and apex stem for a bit of rise. Question if it is a good idea or not.

    What was your full setup.
    29x2.6 front and 27.5x2.8 rear -- high flip position
    You have a push shock so I assume 230x65 ? for 170mm travel
    What was the front fork travel? and that was with the 44mm offset, yes?

    I am interested in experimenting with the mullet setup.


    Thanks

    Yes 170mm Push ACS coil front (44mm offset) and 170mm Push rear. 29x2.6 Magic Mary in the front and 27.5x2.8 Hans Dampf in the back.

    The 2.6 Magic Mary is a pretty huge tire....it may work better with something smaller. I didn't adjust my cockpit at all so some tweaks may have also helped but overall it didn't feel like a good enough start to spend a lot of effort trying to make it work.
