Just saw your new steed - looks really nice. The paint isn't bad at all!

And very much enjoying this one. Thanks again for shipping it to Australia, sorting out the shipping refund and being an all round top bloke!

Just put rotor cranks and praxis rings on to facilitate the new P2M powermeter. Not really that stoked on the aesthetic, but it will do for the minute.

I plan to get some more 'delicate' looking chainrings which might make the whole setup look a bit more pleasant. Too much black right now.



Even the dog doesn't like it.

She's rad, just over a year old. Being an English Staffie, loads of character and energy, loves people. Being 'blue', I cringed when we bought her ('blue' commands a premium, the wife just had one thougbut it is very easy to be proud of herr.

That's a terrific build and great bike. I'm curious about the other bikes in your bike room. What's that yellow track frame? And how old is your concorde?

Decals

The decals decisions are tough...

I have the big downtube decal on my Psychlo-X and totally love it - you can see it from a mile away. But bare ti on the downtube of my Mooto X. And that minimalist look is just right for that rig.

I love the iterations and photos you posted. Excellent taste!

Good riding!

Well well well. 5 years on, almost to the day, and I'm still riding and enjoying this frameset. It's pretty cool to look back at this thread and see where it all started! Funnily enough, Moots are still as uncommon where I live as 5 years ago - I've seen 2 in 5 years.

I've ridden this bike as my do-it-all road bike - commuting 4 days a week, varying training loads and rides on all sorts of terrain and have really enjoyed it. The only thing that I'm not really fond of are the tight clearances in the rear end - but it was built during a time where 23mm tyres were standard so I guess you have to deal with that. And it could maybe be a touch lighter (currently 7.8kg with pedals and 2.2's, 8.2kg with training wheels).

Over that time I've managed to clock up 65,000km on the frameset. I retired the original Dura Ace 9000 groupset somewhere around 55,000km and replaced it with Dura Ace 9100 which has been very nice.

I've rotated through several different sets of wheels, and having gone through a few sets of Dura Ace C24's and a set of c35's it started getting expensive replacing an entire wheelset every 10,000km. (With the factory DA wheelsets they have unusual proprietary lacing, so there's no opportunity to relace the hubs to something else and stretch the investment.)

Currently I have settled on two wheelsets - with H Plus Son Archetyps laced to 28H Dura Ace hubs getting the majority of the k's, and Enve 2.2's on D240 hubs getting the fair weather rides.

The build is fairly mature in that I'm happy with almost everything. I think I'll retire the DA hubs soon as they've done something close to 30,000km... I've always wanted some Chris King hubs so this might be the time.

Current Build Spec:

Frame: 2009 Moots Compact 55

Fancy Wheelset: Enve 2.2 with DT 240s Hubs
Training Wheelset: H Plus Son Archetype with 28H Dura Ace 9000 Hubs
