    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.
