Has anyone on here ran their root down as a mullet? I’m looking at building one, and thinking of the mullet so both of my bikes have interchangeable wheel sets.

Its a nice spot to play through the late fall ,winter and early spring months I certainly do not take any of it for granted. So looking forward to another big mountain season...but I am fine with the blustery spring wether as long as it lasts...A true Coloradoan would never complain about snow or rain knowing it only takes one or two dry days to become red flag fire season...

Already sweating my ass off with my local temps - I'd happy take a few more cool weeks, haha
I cling on to winter cause when it gets hot its hot and all the wackos come out...The only thing I like about summer is riding bikes in the alpine which is amazing...the rest sucks..


Hears me chasing a Doctahawk in the alpine during our extended season last year.



sweet vid man. Looks like a blast of a trail. tup

I ran an og Primer and Rootdown BA mullet for 3 years, before mullet was really a thing. It worked really well for rear tire traction, a bit of extra give in the stiffer rear end, and slackened out the HT just a hair without lowering the bb unacceptably

Just got a set of B+ wheels in last night to try this out!

You can hear my buddy refer to his Doctahawk as a bit long on this maneuver.

Very nice video, that trail looks like good fun.
And the video quality is impressive, no fish eye effect anymore with that one!? I'm still stuck with my hero 2, guess it's time to consider an upgrade.
How are your bikes set up?

Wow, a Surface with a 170mm fork, does he use an angle headset?
The Doc for sure is in its natural habitat on that trail!

The Surface is mine and no angle set actually rides really well.... My buddy loves his Doc, even shines more on steeper terrain.
