I had a Moots 56 Compact before this. This is a 55. The fit seems fine, stiffer for sure I'm assuming due to the oversized bb and head tube. A very nice ride and the Di2 is amazing.

I just tried out di2 for the first time a little over a month ago and like it a lot. Strongly considering a no22 drifter, but need to purge a bunch of bike stuff in order to justify it.

That is sick. Would love to have that fork, especially in a 1" threadless.

I posted this elsewhere here, but all Ti and carbon. This is one of the nicest bikes I have ever owned. Just amazing.

Lemond Victoire. Grossly misrepresented on e-Bay, it required a full rebuild from the bare frame using a donor bike for the components. Contains zero original bits, but nevertheless is partially "correct" since the donor was a Zurich. Also, it turned out to be a size smaller than expected, thus the absurd stack of headset spacers. Still, it is light, fast & lots of fun to ride. Hope to swap the frame for the correct size someday.

Guy on our Wed night shop ride is on one of these. Drool-worthy. I had a steel/carbon spine LeMond and loved the geometry and handling.

I've owned a lot of ti bikes over the past 2 decades. First one was Merlin Road and followed by Litespeed Ultimate. Others have been Serotta Legend, Ottrott and Concours CX, Seven Axiom, and Moots Compact. Currently have a Kish touring/gravel and this Moots PsychloX (for sale now) and Eriksen:

Looks to be my correct size, please let me know when it goes up for sale, you have a buyer, would love to own that frame!
