    looks like Alex may have given it a go at one point

    When I look at the rear dropouts of the Sergeant, they look superior for mountain biking. Keeping in mind, I can ride Sarge more aggressively than I'm willing to treat the Mayor. That's not to say that the Mayor's geo doesn't suit aggressive riding. I just have a concern about the right side with the removable derailleur hanger. Don't wanna kill my Mayor and Sarge is a perfectly suited bike. Being that the 35% discount is available, you might wanna act on that sooner than later.

    Sarge's polished wheels were 700 us. Not cheap, but do look bytchen. I also like having a dedicated fat and +. Too lazy to do the wheel swap when I can wrap my grimy mitts around a grip and get on and ride without drama.

    Go for it, trials, another bike is a reward for your hard days work!

    more realistic cost due to fat hubs with i40 rims.

    It has more to do with the overinflated cost. Looking at the cost of a rim is astounding. My fat hubs were 50 bucks more than my 135/100mm hubs. Boost hubs were on par with fat hubs.

    It was 15C today, snow is pretty much gone, but there's lots and lots of mud. I'm staying of the trails for now, but the ride on the dirt roads was pretty good. Except for the mud. I've got a SKS Grand MOM fender on the back, but I need something for the front. I don't like how the Grand DAD attaches to the fork, looks like it will be too far away from the tire to provide any real protection, so I was thinking about the SKS X-Board, but I'm not sure the straps will fit around the tube. Does anyone have any experience with this mudguard? Or any suggestions for front mud guards?

    Brian, I hadn't really considered mounting fenders. Mostly cause my bikes live in my house and there's nothing worse than giving a bike a bath in cold weather. Some of the "mud guards" don't look to be sufficient coverage to really be effective.

    The pic looks like modification wouldn't be too difficult if it turns out to not have long enough straps.

    I have been considering some of the clear bra material from the auto parts store to use for various places on the frame to protect it, such as the underside of the down tube.

    I've got this one mounted to the front of my and my wife's mayors.

    Haven't had any mud yet (we still have a ton of snow), but it's worked well for spray from snow and melt water. No problems with the straps going around the tube. It certainly doesn't protect the whole down tube, but keeps the spray off of us so far.

    The Mayor



    Still thrilled with this bike, I wouldn't change anything! I haven't posted in this thread at all this winter ...we get so much snow here that most of the winter I am backcountry skiing/ bushwhacking on Altai Hoks. Then late Feb early Mar the deep, soft powder snow goes away, everything firms up, and suddenly it's prime fatbiking time...

    https://goo.gl/photos/zvkCm2tECDWh5qBx8


    ps: actually I would change one thing. Add bottle cage braces on the underside of the down tube, to free up the inside of the frame for a frame bag.

    I've just ordered a custom 29+ wheelset for summer riding on my 2016 Mayor B3.

    On CRC, I get Hope Pro 4 hubs laced onto Easton ARC45 with DT Comp spokes & DT Brass lock nipples. All this for 665$CAD shipped! Might have to had broker fee later...

    I've also ordered 29x3 Maxxis Minions DHF/DHR2 3C TR 120tpi on Amazon...

    Avid Centerline 180mm rotors on eBay...

    To complete a full setup, I'll install the barely used & stock SRAM XG-1150 11spd cassette from my Transition Patrol on the Mayor. Upgrading the Patrol with XG-1180 cassette & X1 chain...the Mayor already has it's X1 chain. the stock KMC chain didn't last a year! :P

    So stoked, the wait is unbearable!

    Thanks! I ordered it last night, and it just left Belfast, I should have it by next week. (The only "problem" with Chainreactions is that I have to order $75 worth of stuff to get cheap shipping).

    All told, how much do you figure that's going to be? It sounds like it's getting close to around $900 ...

    The next best thing after a fatbike in winter has to be Hoks Ski!
    I'm thinking about renting a pair at my local trails since all the conditions for fatbike depends on the snow shoeing there...

    I even went snow shoeing with my spare tire hook up to set the fatbike trails!
    But it's a bit long and without any thrill imho.

    Hoks skis could be my next tool for that!

    Yes, I have 991$CAD without the cassette...but I've got my XG-1180 (X1) off eBay for 149$CAD! free shipping!

    So 1000$ is pretty much the cost of a complete wheelset...but I don't have anymore space for a 6th bike! :P

    So wheelset is my best option... N+1!

    I am looking for a 22 or 24 tooth chainring. Race Face says they make a 24 but no one seems to have one. Any ideas as to other companies that make these? I used a 22 as my granny on my last fat bike for loaded touring and it was great with a 42 in back. It would climb anything and it was just like sitting on the couch.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the ideas. The first link didn't work but the second did list the 24 tooth direct mount chainring but they were out of stock. I am thinking I will have to use a spider.

    The ring that I was thinking is made by E13, unfortunately it's proprietary to their crankset. :/

    Thanks for posting a link to your pictures, it's nice to see you back posting on the thread. Your pictures on this forum were one of the reasons I ended up buying a mayor in the first place. Always top quality and the scenery is awesome. It's nice seeing the pup having a good time in the snow too!

    Glad to hear you are still happy with the mayor and that its still going strong!

    The Hoks are great for messing around in the woods, so much more fun than snow shoes ( I have both). Yes, I know someone that does also use them to groom fat bike trails, dragging a tire.

    Couple of shots with the SKS X-Board mudguard (and Grand MOM). Seems to be working well enough, keeping most of the grit out of my teeth.

    The orange mayor is an awesome color good choice. I'd also add one of those mud guards to the under side of the fork crown, like a marsh guard or whatever it's called. there are templates online to make your own.. that'd make it look even more bad a$$. If you have a rear rack, here's another option for mud protection. I used scraps from a kiddie pool. Full coverage. Slits on the down tube piece, secured with Velcro. Zip ties for rack attachment and one Velcro strip below seat tube. Did a black plastic extension piece from an old garbage bin off the back of rack using a piece of metal attached to the rack to hold it in place.
    Have fun with it, get creative.

    It's covered in mud, so it's hard to see, but I do have one of those little mud guards under the fork crown, from Muddy Nutz, or something like that, I think.

    I just had a revelation on my afternoon ride today, RSD = Rubber Side Down. Sheesh, it took me two and a half months to figure that out!!

    That's awesome! I think I have built those exact wheels on CRC a couple times now lol, still cant make a decision between 29+ and 27.5+. you need to take pictures and let us know how the mayor feels with 29+!

    Yes! Will do!

    I also bought those CRC custom wheels for my Santa Cruz V-10 a few years back, couldn't be happier with the build quality and the Hope Hubs!
    I specially love the loud sound of the rear hub so I don't have to prevent slower riders in front of me! Hahaha

    The wheels are being setup tubeless right now...
    So stoked!
    Now I'll have to test ride we're the snow start to go...because we're right in the snow/iced conditions up here!

    RSD Mayor Monster XC 29+!

    Just got the wheels back and it's definitely lighter. I'll have to weight it and compare with both wheelset later...



    The clearance on the bluto is 7mm so no problem there. This is at 20psi for the tires to seat properly. Might get even more at 12psi...!



    I just can't wait to test ride!

    Now I want the snow & ice to melt!

    That's definitely going to be a killer Monster XC 29+!

    Oh and the hub sound... ridiculously loud and I love it!

    I just did a quick around the block test ride at 12psi(front)/15psi(rear)...the pressure I will use.

    That thing is fast, already feels like it's unstoppable trough ruff pot holes sections in the back alleys around here. Even had a few ice/snow patchs melting in the sun to go trough and feels solid. Guess I'll be able to ride some spring snow conditions soon enough!

    I also manage to reinstall the Beaver Guard splash guard on the bluto with still enough clearance.

    Here some more pics of the beast in his ready to shred setup! :P

    dhbasher, the mayor looks seriously good with that set up! And that hub! Awesome! I can't wait to hear a bit more about how the 29+ does on the mayor. Did you happen to weigh the stock fat wheels and compair them to the 29+? I'd be interested in seeing how much of a weight difference there actually is. Man your making the mayor/ sergeant decision a hard one!

    The Sarge/Mayor was an easy decision. Adjustable cs was part of it. the other was I don't hafta irritate my bikes by takin em apart.

    Besides, 2 RSD's are better than one! They're a team...

    Thanks!

    Sorry to make your choice even harder...

    For me, having 5 bikes is the most I can store so wheelset is the next option to have a 6th bike! N+1

    Didn't had a chance to weight anything but I will.

    I'm curious to see the weight lost myself. I will post it here for sure!

    I don't know how many of you still have snow where they live or if you were in the big Eastern storm yesterday but here is a little capture of my last night ride. We still have well over 3 feet of snow here and nights are still around -20C to -25C. Spring is defenitly comming but we still have a good month left of snow riding for sure!

    Today's ride was a Jeepin expedition along the Colorado River. Was nice to be in shorts and vented jersey crawlin dem rocks.
    JJ 4.8's were the choice for this outing.
