    Nice!

    I dig the drop bar/front disc/canti rear styling! Only improvement would be dedicated fixie

    That's probably the only bike I would consider to replace my Utilitiman. I love my Ute to death but the same format in 29" is just so so appealing.

    Nice ride.

    While I understand the purpose, I can't get over the unconventional stem and handlebar setup. I'll have to give it a try someday, maybe on my crosscheck.

    I'm really pleased with how it turned out. Hopefully, I'll get the first ride in tomorrow.

    AFA wheels go, the rims are Velocity Dyads and the front hub is WTB Lazer disc lite, rear hub is a Phil f/f.

    Yeah, that's how it worked for me. I swapped a set onto my Salsa 'crosser and now I'm hooked. You gotta set 'em up right though, can't be worried about the high-rise stem, etc...

    Hard to tell from the pics it's a 29"er, the proportions are just classic.

    I'd love to have a bike like yours, though I never managed to set a canti up properly for the past 10 years.

    Happy first ride!

    That thing is beautiful. The only thing nicer will be mine when it arrives. I like the bottle bosses on the bottom of the DT, I'm getting that too.

    Congrats, I'm going crazy waiting on my Mute.

    What was the wait?

    How long did he torture you so? Trying to judge times from MC's blog but haven't figured it out yet. I'm thinking (plotting against the evil anti-another-bike-wife that is) of getting one built up to take to Alaska next summer.

    Well, if you want one you should get in line immediately.

    I don't know that my experience is representative, but my Mutinyman took almost 13 months from deposit to delivery. BUT, Matt had a lot going on during that time including moving from CO to ID.

    HOWEVER, I would be prepared that delivery may take longer than estimated. If you're cool with that, then I think it's worth it. Talk to Matt about it.

    I will tell you that, after taking it out on the trails this weekend, my bike ROCKS!

    B

    p.s. Thanks again, Matt!

    Got A Moment For Some Questions?

    Hello O3bart,
    Was hoping you had a few moments for a couple of questions about your MutineyMan.
    In particular and regarding your front end setup (I absolutely love it by-the-way!).

    Not quite sure what bars you've chosen but it looks like there are lots of hand-position options -cool; can you ride 'on the hoods' ala trad. road-style? -it looked like the lever/hoods were angled out pretty far so wasn't sure.

    Also, is your fork set-up 'suspension corrected'?
    -I posted earlier asking about the pros/cons of suspension corrected geometry and got some great responses. Was curious on yours.

    Sorry for the neophyte questions but was really intriqued with your ride but as I said really dig it too!

    Thanks in advance for your response.

    Best,
    ssRR

    They are WTB dirt drop bars. I've set them up much higher than a traditional roadie position so that the drops are in approximately the same postion that my hands would be on flat bars or the hoods on trad drops. So, most of the time my hands sit on the drops or hooks. That provides some continuum of position on there that is super comfy. I also put my hands up on the tops for cruising or seated climbing. The hoods are not at a good angle for me personally. I can place my hands out there but it's not for long. But, it does allow me to move my hands around on long road sections.

    My fork is not 'suspension corrected' to the new 29" 'suspension corrected' standard established by the KM fork and the WB and Marz 29er 80mm forks. My Kelly fork is the same length as the Vicious and the earlier WB CX-1. In the design stages Matt wanted to know which fork length I wanted and since I was going to ride primarily rigid on this rig, I went for the Kelly instead of the KM fork. The shorter fork length also allows the front triangle to open up a little bit for more compliance in the ride. The Pace RC31 is also this same length and I considered getting one of those before the dollar tanked.

    Really appreciate your thoughts and taking the time to respond.

    Very interesting on the short fork/open triangle compliance. Sounds like you and Matt really thought that out well.

    -oh, and sincere apologies for breaking the 11th Commandment: Coveting Another's Bike.
    Fantastic ride. Hope it's everything you want it to be.

    Thanks again!!

    Best,

    My first thought was 'That is the anti-Wal-mart bike'.

    Which is compliment.
