MAYOR V5 Aluminum

 

This is not fake news: Fat bikes have evolved from 1-season freaks that were built for riders who couldn’t make it through snowy winters without a pedal. So we’ve changed with the times and updated our flagship Mayor to be a legit all-season bike. The best value in the fat bike category is now an excellent candidate for year-round trail campaigns.To make good on this claim, these small but significant changes were made to V.5 Mayor:

Same Slacker head angle – 67 degrees
Same Steeper seat tube angle – 74 degrees
Sliding drop-outs and new V5 chainstay lengths of 435mm-450mm, a brand new top tube, shorter head tubes as well as a new added size XXL
Internal dropper-post cable routing

The qualities that made your old Mayor great are still true:

Custom hydro-formed 6061 tubing and RSD carbon fork
Massive rear stays to guarantee lateral rigidity
197mm rear thru-axle and 150mm front spacing
Proven build with RaceFace cockpit and Turbine cranks with direct-mount 28t ring
Sun Ringlé Mulefüt V2 80mm wheels shod with Maxxis Minion 4.8” rubber, allowing up to 100mm rims and 5.05” tires

How much assembly is required?

As stated in the Shop page under each product, there is around 50% assembly required. Each bike takes approximately 30min to 1 hour for an experienced mechanic. Assembly should not be attempted if you’ve never done it before. A bike that is not properly assembled could result in potential serious injuries. Take it to a shop near you. https://rsdbikes.com/assembly-requirements

Do Bikes, Frames or Forks really cost $100, $250 or $500?

No, the $100, $250 or $500 is a required deposit in order to secure a specific size, colour or build that is currently not in stock. The balance will be due prior to shipping. These amounts are labelled as Deposit or Pre-Order Deposit

When do I pay the balance after i placed a pre-order?

Once the pre-order is placed and the deposit paid, there are no further actions needed from you. We will contact you 2-3 weeks prior to the scheduled delivery to confirm your shipping information as well as the details of your order. Once all is confirmed, we will send you an invoice for the balance. We DO NOT automatically charge the original card used for the deposit. The balance can be settled with the same or any other cards.

After I placed a pre-order, can I pay down the balance before the bike/frame arrives?

yes, we accept partial payments to increase the amount of your deposit. The full balance has to be paid prior to shipping. should you wish to make additional partial deposits, please email us. info@rsdbikes.com and reference your order #

Can your frames accept tapered forks?

Yes, all of our frames use 44mm Straight Head Tubes. That means that you can use any and all steer tubes styles and sizes. When the Headset is provided with the frame, it is for tapered steer tube forks.

What headset do i need?

We use ZS44/28.6 Top (Zero Stack) and EC44/40 Bottom (External Cup). We also only use tapered steerer tube forks.

What are the crank specs for the Mayor?

BB shell is 100mm Threaded.
You need a 190/197mm rear spacing crank with a minimum 100mm clearance from the center of the BB to the inside clearance dimension of the crank arms. Minimum Q Factor is 220mm.
We recommend any of these Race Face 190/197mm cranks: Next SL, Next R, Turbine, Aeffect and Ride. Each of these crank will come with 2 x 11mm spacers.
SRAM cranks, even though 190/197mm DO NOT FIT. The Q Factor is too low and therefore the crank arms will not clear the stays.

Do you have a size chart?

Yes, in 2 different places. One is located mid page on the Specs & Geometry Tab as a pull down menu. Just extend the (+) to see the Chart. The other is located at the bottom of the Geometry chart which is also mid page and locate the pull down menu (+) for the Geometry chart and choose your preferred standard: Imperial or Metric.

Yes and No. We might have some parts in stock. Depends on availability. We only have access to other parts from the manufacturers we currently work with, It also all depends in their available stock. If it’s a brand we never worked with, then sorry, we can’t.

Do you offer custom geometry?

No, we don’t. We designed each of our bikes from the ground up to be produced in large quantities, so we cannot accommodate single designs.

What is your warranty?

The short answer is that we offer a Lifetime warranty for manufacturer’s defects on all of our frames to the original owners only. Make sure to register your frame here. See the full Warranty details here

Is my warranty void if I drill my own Internal Dropper hole?

Yes, it will be voided. Each of our frames are tested as sold. If the frame is altered in anyway, it could compromise the strength of the frame and therefore void the warranty. See the full Warranty details here

Can I convert my bike to an e-bike?

Conversion to e-bike, regardless of the system, will void your warranty.
