That's a good question. I have ridden a couple of bikes where I dropped the travel from 170 to 150 when I mulleted the bike, which ends up keeping the geometry pretty similar (within 0.5-1) degree. The ride quality changes significantly. I'd say about 70% of the playfulness is in the small front wheel. I'd say 70% of the cornering quickness is in the small rear wheel. 90% of the easy roll over is in the big front wheel. At the end of the day, my impression of a mullet is you get something with 70% of the cornering quickness, 30% of the playfulness and 90% of the roll over. Oh and 0% of the tire buzz!
