Congratulations on the new Moots!!! I remember chatting with you about the first one you got. Can't wait to see this one. Should be a stellar build. Black and Ti is a great combo!!!

that's probably because on Ti frames, they are not "brazed" on, they are welded on.

One of my favorite brands. My wife has one and I just love the look of a Moots.

The Adventure Continues...Moots VaMoots CR!

Kevin from WebCyclery in Bend, OR emailed me last night telling me that my Moots shipped out and would be here in 3 days! Two weeks earlier than anticipated and I can’t wait. Luckily I’ll be in Bend for work since we’re launching a brand new IPA so I’ll definitrly be having a beer with them when I pick it up!

Pictures uploaded! Can’t wait to get this on the road later today for a shakedown! I couldn’t be more pleased with the build and how everything came together. Thanks to everyone who sold me parts from here on the way to really help this come together.

That thing looks fantastic! Love all the black bits + black decals. Your new wheelset should tie it all together even better.

The 25 Veloflex Corsa’s fit true to a 25. I have plenty of clearance for 28s though. The one tire I know might be tight is a 28 Vittoria Corsa so I’d probably roll 25s with Vittoria. My only thing is the Campagnolo clamp makes it a closer fit so will eventually swap in the Parlee clamp adapter.

Man, good things come to those with patience...

That is perfect in every way, and now that Moots has carbon clamps for their posts, you can finish that off too - cuz someone’s bound to say the carpet should match the drapes.

Favorite detail is subtle Mr. Moots on the upper part of the fork leg. They nailed the less is more angle there

Definitely agreed on the fork! I’m a huge fan of it and the aesthetics. I also really am digging that they didn’t put as many “Moots” logos on the frame (Seat tube). I love the Mr. Moots decal in black by itself.

I know they have carbon compatible clamps but I find the Enve clamp to be far inferior to the Deda ones...plus, I prefer a carbon/lighter/black post compared to the Ti IMO. I think with the fork/bars/tape/saddle it comes together. For me, too much Ti is too much. The stem is just so amazing I couldn’t say no to the deal I was given here.

Thank you for the Moots bottles Dan! They are kickass.
