RSD Bikes Announces 2019 Line Up

At RSD Bikes, we didn't make any New Year's resolutions for 2019, because we're still stoked about how 2018 played out. We introduced an aggressive new steel hardtail, The MiddleChild, and rolled out an all-new version of our perennial favourite fat bike, the Aluminum Mayor V4. Both bikes available to ship now.

Steel MiddleChild
Turquoise MC
3 colours available (Turquoise, Yellow and Black) - Complete w/ dropper $2799 USD. Frames $699 USD

Aluminum Mayor V4
BLK Comp
Complete from $1699 to $2199 USD. Frames $499 USD
Blue Comp
Red Comp

Red detail
Blue SD
Internal Dropper Routing & Sliding Dropouts

2019 will keep the momentum rolling with two more new bikes - the drool-worthy MiddleChild Titanium, and an all-new steel 29'er hardtail called the Archetype, based on 130mm fork and 2.6 inch tires. Due to the very limited production, Ti MiddleChild pre-orders are being taken now for late Spring delivery. Stay tuned for more Archetype news.

Titanium MiddleChild
Ti MC Drive side 2

Complete with dropper $4499 USD. Frames $2199 USD

Ti MC Logo
Hand-painted in Gloss Black with logos and marks lasered to reveal the luster of raw Ti beneath

Ti MC stays
Ti MC Yoke
Seat stays and CNC machined Ti custom yoke with RSD engraved

The stoke builds even higher with the launch of all-new versions of the do-it-all Sergeant V3 hardtail, the Titanium Mayor Fat Bike (shipping now), and the 140mm-travel Wildcat V2 trail bike (Details coming soon).

All three bikes have seen significant changes that upgrade proven designs to reflect what our customers have been doing with them - and telling us - and how current bike design has developed, to make all of our bikes more versatile machines.

Aluminum Sergeant V3
SRGT Angle

Complete w/ dropper $2199 USD. Frames $499 USD
Our new Sergeant has become our ultimate do-it-all-anywhere bike. The V3 is capable of running 27.5x4.0 and 29x3.0

Titanium Mayor V3
Complete from $4299 to $4499 USD. Frames $1999 USD

Engraved Titanium CNC machined custom yoke that allows for 100mm rims with 5.05in tire clearance!

Aluminum Fork
RSD will also produce a custom 510mm rigid aluminum fork, because our search for an existing fork long enough with Boost spacing that would allow for 27.5x4 or 29.3 wheel/tire combos came up empty, short of using a fat bike fork to achieve the numbers and geo that we were looking for. Designed to be paired with our Sergeant V3 or ideal for Bikepackers. Our new fork's vitals: 510mm axle-to-crown, 51mm offset, tapered, fully rack-mount ready, and Boost hub spacing. $249 USD

Ambassador Program
Also new for 2019, we're excited to launch our inaugural Ambassador program for riders in Canada and the USA. Shoot us a quick email if you're interested and we'll send you back some details.

Shipping Abroad
And lastly, but not least(ly?), RSD Bikes will finally be available to ship outside of North America for the first time this year, as we've found a way over the hurdle of crazy shipping costs. A new program with FedEx will allow us to ship both frames and complete bikes to Western Europe, to begin with, at very competitive rates. This is already in place, so email away for quotes, Western Euro shredders!

 I really dig RSD bikes! Seen many in action around my local trails!

But, that Ti Middlechild... painting over beautiful titanium tubing - Why??? The look of raw Ti frames is prestigious.

 Hey manufacturers, don't tell me you can't design a bike around 275x4" tires with normal 148 hubs and 73mm BB because RSD continues to prove you wrong.

 That Titanium MiddleChild is something else. Looking forward to seeing that 29er Steel Hardtail! I'm hoping for a 66ish degree head angle. Keep it up RSD, you guys are doing one hell of a job.

 Steel, aluminium, plasticy black stuff. Music to my ears. My only problem would be if I was buying one would be which one to choose!!

 Love my Mayor V4. Very stable, fun to ride and the new geo feels spot on! Alex has great customer service and it was really neat to actually talk to the owner over the phone when I placed my order. Keep up the great work RSD!

 I own a mayor and a sergeant, I've put in around 4000km on the sarge and close to 2000 on the mayor. I love both these bikes and have had probably the best customer service I have ever experienced with RSD. I don't think I've ever seen a company care so much about their customers and also adapt to what the market wants so quickly, with the current 2019 line up it looks like they hit the nail right on the head! They have a great low profile look with their frames with the only branding being the head tube badge and the model name. I for one think it's great and their bikes look awesome.

 Stoked to see the new Wildcat!! Love my Mayor. RSD has got some good shit going on, nice to see them continually making improvements and growing as a brand. Nothing but love for Alex and the brand.

 Hadn't heard of this company, but now will possibly be my next ride. Cannot stress enough how cool it is to get a progressive geo. steel frame from a Canadian company. Very cool

 Hm, never heard of RSD before. Wonder where they're located. Let's see: "favourite" - OK, UK, one of the colonies, or maybe Ireland. "Aluminum" - huh? "Luster" - ah, definitely Canadian.

 I have never understood why shipping out the states is so crazy expensive. Why can CRC ship me something for free when the same thing could cost $60 USD plus. I was once going to buy a frame but $400 USD shipping was crazytown territory.

You would have thought that it would be better for business and the economy if it was more attractive for international buyers to buy online from American companies. Sadly, not the case. I'll go pretty much anywhere other than the states...
  • 2 0
 Things are free from CRC to Canada other than large items. For example: 2018 Cube Hanz 190 costs 2159CAD.

Just to have the bike shipped to Ontario, Canada would cost me $616... So that 2160 dollar bike is now a 2776 dollar bike. Due to taxes and duty fees.

 Because shipping to NZ is difficult (ie too hard to organise because hey, its all the way down there) for most people and they cant ship to Oz because apparently Australia is a made up country that was invented to scare the poms into behaving themselves in the early 19th century lol

 @ RSD-Bikes
Please Please Please tell me that you will have internal cable routing for the steel MiddleChild in the future. And if not, how come? Why spec it on the Titanium, but not the steel frame?
Most longer travel posts (150-170mm) are internal routing. Have enough cable attachment points for someone to run an external if they wish, but internal dropper routing is almost a requirement these days.

 The bikes used for the photoshoot were pre-production , without dropper. The production bikes have internal dropper. it will be fixed on the site very soon. Cheers.

 wait... your first boat?

Found the dentist!!!

 @colincolin: Actually, my first boat out of three is green too. They're inflatable. Does that count?

No dentist but I've got a nice collection of powerful drills so I could do the demolition bit in case of an urgency.

 stoked on my sergeant- 29er summer shoes and 3.8 winter shoes! if the new wildcat has improved geometry then i may well grab one!
  • 1 0
 Perfect year round bike. For the summer put 29er enduro tires. Then, in the winter, put on the 27.5x4.0 tires and a fat bike fork for the snow. And finally 29er plus tires for mud season. Might be my next new bike to replace my niner someday

 I've been looking at the Middlechild for a while but I feel like having adjustable drop outs on a bike labeled as an enduro shredder creates a weak point on the bike. How much abuse can that part of the frame take before it loosens or becomes weakened, even just a little bit could be really impactful if you are smashing down something rough. Maybe somebody can point out what I'm missing because I really like these bikes otherwise.
  • 2 1
 It's definitely not a weak point. it never loosened. You can ride that bike hard with confidence.

 I have a 2003 harp backtrail with slider drops, it’s bulletproof cause like the middle child it’s steel yeahhh boyyyy, big hits all day
  • 2 0
 Upgrade the the bolts on the sliders I'd you do. That drop out is used a lot. You will likely strip bolts getting torque to spec and avoiding pivoting with gentle movement of bike with rear brake clamped.

 I have a sergeant and a wildcat. They're both great bikes, but I can't get over how incredibly capable the sergeant is. My only wish was for better rear tire clearance, but the new model looks like it's got that handled.

 F YEAH RSD. I love their style.

 Where is Wildcat? It shouldn't be a secret.

 Thank you for single speed option. Hard tails without it is a waste of time.

 The middle child ti looks like my ideal hardtail. So cool.

 Really nice bikes and selling frames is a huge win.
I just don't like their external cable routing. (I would like them all on top of the down tube in a nice clean way)
It looks kinda ugly especially on the Sergeant V3. Like it's out of place.
Everything else on that bike seems really great.
