The crew at Pro Bike Supply was most helpful and provided useful advice.
The Bluto arrived on time and I was pleased with the build quality.
Now for the good part; It was a pleasure to install and adjust the settings to my riding style. Having a shock pump with a micro pressure adjustment and a (no leak) schrader valve, makes for easy sag adjustment.
I primarily ride rocky single track trails and this shock is an absolute game changer. The ride control settings are easy to adjust on the fly with No need for a remote handlebar adjustment option.
The Bluto is only 0.6 lbs heaver than the alloy fork that it replaced so basically no difference there.
This suspension fork changed my Framed "Wolftrax" rigid Fat Bike into a trail blasting, creek crossing beast that reduces fatigue and allows for higher speeds with much more control. Knocked almost 5 minutes off one of my 15 mile loop trails on the Mogollon Rim, Arizona
