Moots Compact Build - 2021 Update

Sep 2021: With the demise of Tinypic, most photos have disappeared but after clocking over 100,000km on the frame I went to the effort of digging up a few photos and posted them on Page 4.

I just took delivery of a 2009 Moots Compact (from tnoonan on this forum)... made it's way from the states to Adelaide all the way down in South Australia.

Moots aren't too common here, which led me to go abroad in my search. Ended up getting lucky - right frame, right size, fair price.

And this is my first TI build, so naturally, very excited.

Anyway, I hope to get this thing built up before my birthday at the end of May... with any luck, my savings will be getting plumper over the next few weeks!

My plan is basically to kit out what I've bought from Tim with DA9000, an ENVE finishing kit and probably some DA9000 C24 wheels. I'm pretty sure I'll scrap the red CK headset and replace with a black one.

Enough talk here's a pic of the frame, as delivered.

See how we go eh?

Initial Build:

Update: 2021 Build Photo

7 years and 100,000km in, main change from most of the previous iterations is the SRM which makes me very happy... it's funny to read through my comments along the way lamenting how I didn't like the Rotor crank, ha! This photo was taken on the ride where the magic 100,000km number was hit.



Update: 5 years later and just over 65,000km, still riding this bike. There are various incarnations of the bike dotted throughout the pages but I have included the most recent build and a few photos below in this main post. Thanks to the Paceline for allowing me to ride such a fantastic bike.

Update: 2019 build photo - 65,000km later

Updates from previous iterations... Enve 2.2’s, Dura Ace 9100, NoQ Chainrings, Specialized Power Saddle.

Update: 2014 build photo

Moots

Enjoy, they're fab frames, had a few myself. If you do decide to stick with the red headset, I've got a Moots stem and seatpost with red hardware for sale - PM me if interested...
Cheers
Jon

Enjoy

I have the same model year Compact and love it. Think you will too. Sounds like yours will have a fantastic build too. Congrats, Matthew.

Thanks Jon, I wasn't going to mess with the red, but that sounds tempting. I will flick you a PM in a tick.

Cheers mate, I am so tempted to strip my Madone and build the moots in a hurry, but am trying to exercise some self-restraint. It will be much nicer and I will appreciate it much more as a fresh build!

f-the self restraint. do it. you can rebuild it when all the parts come in - it'll be like getting a new bike twice!

Anticipation is really under-appreciated.

Love the frameset.

If I told you that I technically had the savings to buy the groupset, wheels and finishing kit, but I am trying to be really good with my money and pay for the stuff as I get money from freelancing work (a.k.a. beer money), would you believe me?

Hahaha!

I'd paint the frame and fork, loose the graphics, keep the head badge. Moots are very nice bikes, but the graphics - NO. Full disclosure - I have a Vamoots.

I actually like the finish of Moots. The fork? Maybe paint that. OR at least lose the enve graphics. Or do nothing and ENJOY!

I know what your saying about the Moots decals - but I kinda like that about them at the same time.

If I go with enve finishing kit I will keep the sticker on the forks. If not, I'll remove. But I don't think I will paint them - this might be a bit controversial but I'm not really into the colour matched fork thing.

And yes, a massive thanks to this forum. If it wasn't for me discovering The Paceline, I wouldn't be riding a bike anywhere near as classy as a Moots
