    Nice lookin bike and it's good to see a small Canadian company doing this. I don't understand the red-white-blue "The Mayor" decals.

    They outta have specs and price on a website. Their facebook page doesn't say much except 29lbs. And I gotta add a company has to step up and get some color in the mix. Black everything, as slick as it is, is waaay over done. Anyone remember Fat Chance?!

    Well... I'll argue on that rwb color scheme. It's very American.

    Nice lookin bike. Beats Pugs weight by 10lbs.

    Had to laugh when I read that. I owned a Fat Chance Wicked Light back in the day. It was all black.

    I know what you mean though, they had some great color schemes. I had hoped that Surly would do some more of the bass boat sparkle frames like the moonie last year but in brighter colors. Like the old homegrowns.

    30 countries around the world have red/white/blue flags, not just the USA. It is a nice looking bike though. Wish there were more photos.
    I see hills.

    I want to climb them.

    Yes Coloradogoose. I owned a WickedLite too. Wish I still had it. Amazing bike.

    I have an all black xc bike. I bought the Necro last year so obviously I do love black on black as I said earlier.

    Statement is made for all bike companies and I was just saying a majority of bikes these days seem to be coming out black or mostly black.

    Guess I'm not doin much better going chrome with black trim on my fatty but I'm adding red anno wheels for a little splash of color.

    This is a pretty dang good deal. Wonder how long it will be before they have these bikes in numbers. April? They also seem to have some 29+ bikes that look interesting, but information is hard to come by regarding availability and cost on those.

    Frankiklex,
    Frame weight (My Krampus seems pretty portly) and chain stay adjustability on the 29+? What is the useable range. Also, any pics of tire clearance with a Knard on Rabbit Hole with the wheel slammed all the way forward? Cool looking bikes(all Zen built?), and I love the "Mayor" name! Oh yeah, any plans of an Al 29+ frame?

    29+ R853 is 5.25lbs - DB Cr-Mo 4130 Heat Treated is 5.75lbs
    On the stays, you have 20mm of adjust-ability. Plenty of clearance slammed forward.
    The `Lucky Penny`is made by Zen - The other 29+ overseas
    Thanks. possibly for next year an AL6061 version of the 29+ and possibly a Ti as well

    The specs on your site say CS is 445. So do they adjust from 445 to 465? Thanks for the info. It's cool that you're using Zen for some of your frames!

    When will they be available for order?
    Will they be available as both complete bikes and as frames only?
    How soon before a rider could expect to be riding one?
    Any idea on costs for both the 853 and the CroMo frame? Hoping the CroMo will be will be a similar quality build and price to this "Mayor" fat bike.
