    Mayor Fat Bike for Tall Riders

    Shout out to riders c. 6' 3"+ (190cm+) who'd like to chime in on development of an XXL size of our Mayor fat bike. We’ve received many inquiries over the past few months about the possibility of producing one in that size. So it's on, and will ship this fall. Sales will be limited to Special Pre-Order only.

    The baseline design details are derived from the current (V4) XL-sized Mayor, and expanded from there:

    Seat Tube - 520
    Effective Top Tube - 680
    Head Tube – 150
    Reach – 500
    Stack – 625 based on 490mm A to C
    BBH – 335 with 26 x 4.8 Tires
    STA – 73.5
    HTA – 67

    We welcome your feedback or any input you might have at this stage.
    Cheers

    Nice! Good looking out for those super tall or who want something longer.

    I would recommend maybe not increasing the length of the seat tube. I am 6’4 and just got a 170mm dropper for my XL mayor v4. Glad I didn’t go with a 200mm as that would have been way too long. Big guys can always get a slightly longer seat post or dropper for longer legs, but keeping the seat tube length in check will allow riders who maybe are not as tall, but looking for something longer to be able use this bike as well.

    Bontrager did something similar with his Race frames. He had a XXL and a XXL stretch. The only difference between them was about 1.5” in length with everything else staying the same.

    Also, if the head tube is only increasing by 10mm in length, why would the stack go from 614mm on the xl up to 635mm on this new XXL? Shouldn’t it raise up to about 625mm with the same length fork?
    Get out of the gutter and onto the mountain top.

    Good catch. Typo. 625mm. Thanks
