    Edit: I first saw this company over in the fat bikes thread. Learned that they have frames coming out in 4130 Chromoly, and Reynolds 853. They are also having handmade USA built frames for sale. As I understand it, the frames for the 29+, Mutant, and the regular 29er, Chief, are the same. Only the builds are different. Great value on the dollar. Looks like RSD is delivering a lot of what folks have to go to a custom builder to get. Hope RSD can come through and deliver on what looks like nice bikes. I like it when folks from the bike companies come on threads and answer questions posed directly by users, which RSD did a nice job of over in the fat bike forums. Maybe this RSD post is a little spammy, but I wouldn't hold it against them.

    In case anyone is interested, there is also another thread here: RSD bike anyone?

Maybe I'm wrong about this, so I'll let others chastise me if I'm crossing a line.

    As you can see, there was already a thread started here: RSD bike anyone?

    And I posted there some days back to show my support.
    I couldn't agree more. Really looks like shameless promotion to my eyes but a man's gotta eat, right?

    Nice bike though.

    I'm all for bike companies pumping awareness and seeking feedback. It shows that they give a sht. Thoughts? Thanks for making bikes RSD.

    We are a brand new company and all we are doing is create awareness. By posting this threads, we were simply looking for some feedbacks. We don't have the same means as the bigger players, so we do what we can. Thanks for the inputs

    Frantiklex, I think you're going to get a lot of questions about which suspension fork you are squeezing the 47mm rim and the Knard 29+ tire into. Most/all forks have clearance issues fitting that combo.

    Also, I'd like to know more about the hub you are using for your 29+ wheels. I've never heard of the hub you are using. Can you tell me what you know about the points of engagement and maybe let us know which "well known" hubs you feel comfortable comparing them to?

    well, it's an air fork - 100mm travel. Can also fit 50mm rims. 490mm a to c. 15QR and tapered steer tube. It fits quite well. no issues there. the fork has rebound, compression and lock-out.

    as for the hubs: These are no Chris Kings or DT240s or 440s. They would be closer to a DT350 or a DT SPLINE hub - 6 pawl - cnc machine

    Is it the same unbranded fork that folks are using/selling to bring suspension to fat bikes? I've seen fat bikers mentioning that fork, but I don't know a lot about it.

    Edit: judging by your pictures, it is not the same fork I was thinking of. So is this a fork RSD bikes is having built special? I can't imagine that. So who is making the fork?

    What rim are 29+ wheels shipping with? Northpaw, rabbithole, or a combo of the two
    as shown in the pics you posted here? Or can you opt for your choice? Is that a Titanium Mutant? or will the 29+ wheel work on the chief? The same frame as Slow Danger mentioned.

    It's not just a matter of an alternative slider?

    Yeah, that's the fork I was thinking of, but who makes the suspension fork that will come on the Mutant.

    Ok. Either we have a language problem, or you are not being forthcoming. Is the inverted fork that you posted in the picture of in bike bike shop the same fork that will come with the Mutant? If so, why are you advertising a different fork in the original picture posted in the first post that started the thread?

    The actual frames are 156mm rear spacing without sliders. sliders are 7mm thick, which gives you 142mm hub spacing. you would need to get thicker sliders to achieve 135mm, and i don't know if anyone makes one. In the future, we will offer conversion kits.
