    My Moots 29er Rocketship

    Picked up this bad boy a couple of weeks ago .... super fast / super agile. Very happy with the bike.

    2012 Moots MootoX RSL frame
    2012 Fox 32 FIT RLC 100mm Fork
    Enve Cockpit
    Enve 29er XC wheelset from Wheelbuilder
    XO Group Set
    Nobby Nic Tires

    Has about 6 rides in on it and already a couple of battle scars but wanted to post a few pics before heading out in an hour for my traditional Thanksgiving ride.

    Looks like about as nice bike as there is !
    Is the bending of the downtube designed to increase BB stiffness ? Does it work well ?

    Very nice! Needs a Moots Post and Stem! Just Kidding. I'm in the process of getting a 2012 Mooto-X YBB single speed right now! I had one before and sold it then later decided it was my favorite bike ever (live and learn and spend!)

    Top bend is for fork crown clearance. The bottom bend supposedly adds stiffness but after speaking with Moots it became clear that the botttom bend was done more for asthetics than anything else. Big change for '12 was to modify the overall geometry to
    use 100mm of fork travel. Previously it was designed for 80mm.

    That's a really nice bike... but why so much setback of the saddle and such a long stem? - Frame to short?

    Awesome. With that level of money spent, is there a reason you didn't go with XX over X0?

    Hey look! Someone with just as long of femurs as mine.

    I'm right on the cusp of only fitting custom frames, but a layback post and the saddle all the way back seems to be alright as long as the seat tube is 73* or less.

    VERY nice ride. I'm saving my pennies for some ENVE/CK wheels.

    Sweet Jesus!

    Hell of a build there. From frame to parts you picked ... super sweet!!!

    One question,

    What is the actual height of the bottom bracket?

    It's nice to be able to buy the equivalent of a Formula 1 car for less than $10K.

    Nice. Like to see the use of matchmakers, really clean up the cockpit!

    Frame was professionally fit to me and the stem length is 110mm which from my perspective is pretty average ... certainly not long ( stem lengths typically range between 90mm - 140mm). Moots 29er frames are designed for layback posts and I also wanted as small a frame as possible that I could be comfortably fitted to. Finally, as another poster astutely noted I have long legs and a short torso and this frame size suited me best.

    Went with X0 given the weight savings compared to XX are minimal and X0 is supposedly more durable. Given my intention to race the bike but also use it for normal riding as well I opted for X0 / grater durability.

    Per Moots website BB height is 11.875"

    Weighs ~ 22.5lbs which is not uber light but it has a pretty heavy set of tires on it right now with lots of Stans. Will drop easily 1lb when switched over to race tire set up.

    Sweet ride bro! I happened to stop by the shop when Rob was putting your bike together. The pics don't do it justice. Besides the obvious money frame, I love the wheels you went with. Enjoy the ride!

    True BB Height

    It might be 11.875" on Moots website, but I was curious what was your actual height.

    Don't know if it is the camera angle, but it just looks higher than the 11.875" on the website. Just curious as to what was the real world height.

    Regardless, super looking build.

    Moots with total Enve cockpit is my dream bike! Love the curvy downtube - IMO the best 29er I've seen on this forum.
