2016 Foes Mixer Trail & Enduro - 2016 Trail and Enduro Bikes at Interbike - Mountain Biking Pictures - Vital MTB

Foes had two new bikes on display here at Interbike, the Mixer Enduro and the Mixer Trail. While both bikes feature a 27.5 rear wheel and 29" front where, they vary slightly in their intended use, travel and geometry.

The Mixer Enduro, pictured above, features 160mm of rear travel and 170mm front. The head-angle ranges from 66.5 to 67.5-degrees, depending on the fork's axle to crown measurement, and can make use of a +/- 1-degree headset. With the slacker head angle and longer chainstays of the two, measuring 17.6-inches, the Mixer Enduro is meant for more aggressive riding and can even accept a dual crown fork should you choose. The pictured build weighs 31.5lbs and will sell for $4,400, available now.

The Mixer Trail, pictured below, features slightly less travel and aggressive geometry than its Enduro big brother. The Trail has 150mm rear and 160mm front travel, a 67.5/68.5 head angle and 17.1-inch chainstays. The Mixer Trail will retail for $3,999 (with a standard seatpost, not the pictured dropper) and is available now.

    I have owned a Foes Mutz for about a year and a half now and all I got to say is WOW! I bought the Mutz in search of the "one" in which I can swap out wheelsets for varying conditions, snow, mud etc. Enter Mike Vidovich from Timberline Cycles the Brainchild of the corrected Mixer. As you know other big box companies have tried and failed with mixed wheels so tackling this venture was right up Mike's alley having come from a moto background. I have known Mike for 3 years now from when he was a Gas Gas dealer (Motorcycles)

    Anyway Mike suggested a custom build(which is what Timberline specializes in) that consists of a 29 plus front wheel and 27 plus rear wheel so plussed up Mixer if you will with a CORRECTED head tube angle of 68 degrees which is critical with a 30.2 inch tall front wheel. I have over 15 personal records on my now 33lbs gorgeous converted fatbike and I will be purchasing a new Mixer in the future. If you have the means talk to Mike and Chelle at Timberline and build your new machine soon. Oh before I forget Timberline put a 29 plus Dirt Wizard front tire and a 27 plus WTB TRAILBLAZER on the back of the Enduro yesterday so they made a Plus bike out of her!

    I have owned a Foes Mixer now for about 1 month and wanted to share my thoughts so far. I have been riding an Intense Spider 29er for 4 years prior to this bike. I get out riding about 3+ times a week and would consider myself an advanced rider. So far the Mixer is a great ride. The bike seems more nimble and response than my Intense. Going up hills I get that nice roll over up front and when I really pedal hard I can feel the bike has more acceleration than my Intense. Going down hills the smaller tire in back really does help with drops (I am going off drops where on the Intense I would feel like I wanted to launch over the bars) with a lot more comfort and stability. When the trail has more turns the front wheel performs like my Intense but the back seems to take a tighter line through the curve (I start the curve a bit forward, I then move back over the rear wheel) and the bike will whip thought the curve.
    I have no regrets with the Mixer and my level of riding is improving with this bake. Kudos to the folks at Foes and Timberline for coming up with this bike!
