    Bought The Mayor...

    RSD Bikes The Mayor with Bud/Lou, weighs in at 31.6 lb pedals included. Replaces my Pugs. This will be an awesome snow machine! 8-)

    Size medium. Its still at the shop, picking it up probably Tuesday. I got quick responses from RSD to my questions last week using contact box on their website.
    I suggest emailing them.

    ps: - although it says custom hub/wheel on the Mayor spec tab, other component wheels on their web site spec UGD hubs. So that would be my guess

    The hubs are not bad for the price point and the rims look a lot like weinmann rims. Back hub is crazy loud.

    Muskoka Outfitters did an early preorder of the 2015. He has a large black stock complete in the showroom and he had this medium frame kit which he built up with Bud & Lou for me. The preorders shipped with the RaceFace saddle, the later shipment will have a WTB saddle. I was actually more interested in the raw than in the black, but when I walked in and saw this I really liked it. The rest of their Mayor order is being waited for here too, so I lucked out 8-)

    2015 has added rack adapters, more clearance for Bud/Lou etc. They have also reduced the size and flattened the profile of the brace between the top tube and seat tube, which looks much better IMO.

    I don't know where you are located and I think you have already ordered, but just so you know Muskoka Outfitters has a medium raw X1 coming in. I'll bet it will look pretty sweet!!

    I had to go with an online order as there is no dealers near where I live. Going blind but I trust the numbers and you folks.

    Went with the house carbon fork, very nice and includes rack mounts if you are into that. Was on the fence for a bit about getting the Bluto, but since I mostly snow ride with a fat bike (had a Pugs for 4-5 yrs b4 buying this) i decided on less weight. Plus it will be way easier to pick up a Bluto on fleabay later on then finding this fork if I decide down the road that I want both.
    Rims are the house (look like maybe Weinmann) 80 mm, with Bud & Lou. LOTS of frame clearance for the tires! 8-)

    Cool! It is very sharp looking. Good to here the tire clearance has been upped on the 2015 bikes. I read the Fat-Bike review and it looked a little tight.

    Enjoy! I am looking forward to some pictures and a ride report from you.

    Meet The Mayor.

    So I recently sold off the Pugsley that I had been riding for almost five years, and was shopping for a new ride. Unlike back in the day when you couldn't even buy a complete build, today there is a lot of choice, with many brands at every price point well represented here in Muskoka. I had it narrowed down to between the RM Blizzard and RSD Bikes The Mayor. The Mayor won, and sweet it is...






    With Bud/Lou plus pedals..31.6 lb on the bike shop scale. I will swap out the RACEFACE saddle with my spare fi'si:k Nisene, which is a personal favourite. And I will also swap out the trigger shift for grip shift at some point soon, another favourite especially for winter riding. Everything else is just fine! 8-)

    Yeah I emailed with Alex and he said his date is the 15th and the pedal the planet 22nd. If all falls into place it should be at my doorstep by the 24th. That would make for a very good Christmas present!

    Anyone know whether they used the 170 or 190 race face crank? Curious as what kind of Q factor the bike had.

    Works good just adjust the derailleur so it doesn't rub when you're shifting.

    Cranks are a tad over 8" at the BB.

    I have a 2014 and found that cranks for 170mm wide frames don't fit (i.e. Sram X9). 190mm RF turbine fits with not all that much room to spare due to the super wide chainstays.

    Night Ride...





    Swapped out the trigger shift for grip shift. Also went to a 30T chain ring from the stock 32T. Coming from a 2x9 Pugsley that would climb a tree, I can see me needing a 42T cog if I want to effortlessly spin up steep & long climbs on snow.
    The LBS is recommending a Hope 40T, saying the transition shift will be smoother without such a huge jump from the 36T. Their concern too is how well the X7 derailleur would do with shifting onto a 42T.
    I would appreciate feedback from anyone having a 42T with a SRAM X7 derailleur. I would prefer to go to that if it works well. At the time the price jump going to 1X11 on this bike seemed excessive but in hindsight if I was doing it over I would go that way if adding a 42T to the 1x10 is a problem! Or maybe a 40 and a 42 are close enough that I wouldn't notice a lot of diff??

    ps: Before someone asks (they always do) the orange/blue thing clamped to the frame is my Running Dog BikeTowLeash

    I am running 1 x 10 30t to 11 - 42, on a 36 cassette using OneUp. This is on my 29+ no problem, shifts fine, go 42. I have heard issues with the Hope but that could be sorted out by now. I see you try and keep a Canadian theme as I, Oneup is out of BC.

    Looking at their website, what is the 16t that is shown with the 42 for?

    You swap the 15 and 17 out and install the 16 for a better shift combo

    Sram fat cranks have a narrower qfactor vs race face cranks. It is possible that a RF100mm spindle crank "may" fit. The new turbine cinch cranks have an even wider qfactor.

    To make room for the 42T, you have to ditch the 17T.That causes a big gap so you can remove 15T and 17T and put the 16T ...

    I'm still debating between The Mayor and a Fatboy but if I get The Mayor, I think I'll go with X1 1x11… The problem is that the LBS pre-ordered like 10 bike and I'm guessing they're all 1x10… For a few more $ than the 450$ X1 upgrade, you can also get a new crank (Raceface Next SL) and go with a chainring as small as 26T. And you save 1/2 pound!

    If you're over 40 you will appreciate the more upright riding position of the mayor. What's the name of the shop?

    Hype in quebec City. I would like to try more bikes before I make a decision. I'll be able to try RM Blizzard and Trek Farley, both available for rental. But bang for the buck, The Mayor seems the way to go...

    I debated the choice of x1 vs 1x10, then I factored In the cost to replace rear D every time I would snap or mangle which happens a lot around here. 1x10 with 42t/16 cog is where I decided and if the stock 32 nw is too big then I will do a crank swap.

    I wonder as I am a bit of retro grouch, if I can find a square taper bb that works and get nice set of middleburns for this.

    Is that 'cause the chain needs to be longer to accommodate the 42t? Length now is such that derailleur is horizontal when I'm on the smallest cog. Probably because I went from 32t to 30t without shortening the chain. I can't see it being any longer!!??

    I hope so! Otherwise I'm going to beg for a few links from the LBS. If I had to buy a new chain to replace a new chain I would not be happy!

    Look at the pic by the wood pile. Looks like I'm on the 36t cog and the derailleur is just past verticle...what do you think?

    Oneup Conversion

    Really surprised to have my Oneup 42T&16T package delivered to my door on a Sunday morning!!! Perfect timing though... a drizzly day so got right on it. Easy conversion for SRAM X7 - only adjustment needed was the B limit screw, and I still have a few turns left before that screw bottoms out!

    I hear the 2015 Mayor are all sold out as of beginning December, so what the bike shops have in stock or in transit will be all she wrote!
    No change to the chain length, I think its good. Probably wasn't shortened by the LBS when they swapped out the 32t chain ring for a 30t

    I also swapped for Bud & Lou, $50 extra for me. Nice to see some good pics of these bikes coming in. There is a Raw at my lbs now but it wasn't built when I was in last. Next time I'm there will get some pics..if it lasts that long!

    they are actually good, for a mech brake. I have done back to back rides on different Fat bikes, a Mayor with Avids, and a bike set up with Hope Tech's. Imho they both have great stopping power, the hydros just feel a tab bit more refined. If you have the hopes keep em around, but give the avids a good go for sure.

    The wait has been ridiculous, now 10 days and counting for them to arrive from RSD headquarters to pedal the planet. How do things ship 2days from half way around the world and then something that's less then 24 hr drive take almost 2weeks? Looks like it won't be at my door before end of the year. Would not do this again considering I seen others buying fatboys day after day. Ok rant over...

    The Xmas break affected shipping to the States. They posted about it somewhere, should be soon. And...do you really want to ride something called Fatboy!!? Zero effort and imagination went into naming that bike!

    No that's why I went with the mayor over the evil "S" but continually told new dates since October has now left me rethinking my choice going forward. How are they going to handle warranty issues? Where's the phone number to call? I have no doubt it's a great bike but I wonder about the behind the scenes of the company. Been through this with Misfit brand. Go read where that's ended up.

    I'm guessing the constant date extentions is their supplier's fault. I know from their facebook page that bikes have all arrived just before Xmas and have been shipped out. You have an online retailer I think? So another shipping stage over the holidays. Should be any day now, I think you will be very happy when you see the bike, they really are nice! What colour did you order?

    I will for sure but the process just stinks. Been missing a bunch of fatty get togethers which added to my early morning rant 😠 I am pissed that an 11 hr drive from rsd to Tennessee has turned into now 10+ days. PtP are miffed as they expected before Xmas and yes I still have another shipping stage. It has become a running joke now around my circle. Black. Like all my other bikes. By the way it took half the time to get my custom Seven road bike then this bike,go figure...

    Alex and the gang at RSD have only been around a couple of years and are still figuring things out and I'm pretty sure this will be a big lesson for them to perhaps give a little more lead time on their estimated delivery dates. I pre-ordered mine in July and dropped half the cost down as a down-payment so I know all too well your frustration and I would have been riding a RM Blizzard a month ago if it wasn't for the issues with the rear hub and Lou fitment. I'm glad I found the patience to hold off as anything else I rode just didn't measure up to The Mayor. You'll love it, and soon the running joke will turn to envy

    im on the same boat as mattybfat...was told its coming any min by my shop on 22nd and still no words. ive played this waiting game with 1st generation jones splitboard...lost good 2months of riding and was pissed. especially frustrating since ive planned my Christmas and new years around riding the mayor...but this does happen especially to a new company and we all want to support a new small Canadian bike company that makes phat fat bikes. yes, for sure I do. but c'mon already!!

    Trail Test - OneUp Conversion...

    So with Xmas out of the way I was finally able to trail test the OneUp 42t/16t Conversion I added to my 1x10 Mayor. No doubt this is one of the best improvements one can do to the stock bike for anyone riding mostly on snow. Now I can easily spin up the steeper climbs without fear of blowing out a knee! This along with Grip Shift and 30T chain ring has the bike pretty much how I like it and I'm happy as a clam! All we need now is more snow...

    Does anyone have a picture of a Raw frame? I'm still waiting on mine.

    I've been emailing Wendy from Pedal the planet regarding my order and haven't received a single reply. It would be great if I could at least get an ETA.

    No pics yet but there was one on the bike stand at Muskoka Outfitters just being built last time I was in. Looks great, very bright high gloss finish, not dull and flat the way some raws are done. What I mean is some raws that I have seen look like they missed the paint booth. The Mayor has a very polished and finished look. If it's still there next week I will takes some pics.

    I've been emailing Wendy from Pedal the planet regarding my order and haven't received a single reply. It would be great if I could at least get an ETA.

    Thanks man! Appreciate it!
