Do it all fattie.






Picked up a Foes Mutz early this spring with the intention of making it a do it all summer/winter bike.

Been swapping out parts I don't like and so far it's a very impressive bike for sure. I have no trouble keeping up to or accelerating away (on downhill sections this thing is awesome) from the guys I ride with who are on conventional bikes with teeny tiny tires.

10/10 so far!

Thanks! The rack is a modified motorcycle hitch rack and can fit all my bikes (one at a time lol) from 24" wheels to the mutz.

why the change on the fork? I run the Topaz also on a 135mm bike, it's been my favorite shock so far

The other fork had a ton of wheel deflection and play, didn't work with 2 piece shimano rotors and I wasn't confident in its longevity. It was returned.

Define need...

I'm heavy, hard on bikes and used to get many flats. This has taken it all and I've gotten one flat this season that was my fault (didn't check pressure before a ride). I keep up with everyone I ride with with no matter the wheel size or trail.

So yeah, theres a need for me dude.
