    That would be cool for you since Travis is so behind on photo updates. LOL

    Nice, that's the way it should be. Got any more feedback on the 29er vs 27.5+ yet?

    I am not seeing a downside to 27.5+ with the 2.8 Butchers besides the lower BB. The lower BB is a double edged sword, more pedal strikes, but lower COG. I am thinking of installing 165mm cranks for clearance.

    Mine now with:
    - XT brakes - more out of vanity than nothing, the BB7s were actually nice brakes
    - 170mm Reverb - the PRO Koryak was short and started developing problems

    Will add a Oneup Bash Guide this week and I'm done with it.
    Might try a -2ļ angleset in the future just to play a bit and maybe one of those new Marzocchi Z1 Bombers by the end of the year if the reviews turn up to be good.


    Had another "OH F@CK" moment today where the Moxies' length saved the day. Was riding a technical trail and got a line wrong, causing me to arrive to a 80cm or more drop at stall speed. Decided to commit and try to roll it. Don't know how, but managed to clear it.
    One thing is certain, will never have another bike with a <800mm front center

    I agree, the length will save your ass on occasion.

    Which tyre size do you think is better for my situation? 27.5*2.6 or 2.8?
    I have to ride about 7 miles tarmac that include some steep climb to the local trail. And the tyre I'm aiming is Maxxis Rekon.

    Thanks for the suggestion!
    Does 29er feels harder to throwing around on this bike?
    And does 29er feels bumpier on rocky sections or not?
    Btw, I'm 5"10.

    I have 29 Maxxis WT DHR/DHF and 27.5+ 2.8 Specialized Butchers. So far I prefer the plus wheels. Even on the road they are not slow and they do have more cushioning so I get less beat up. The BB is pretty low which cuts both ways. I saw a Chromag Rootdown the other day with 3.0 High Rollers which will raise the BB and I may try some bigger rubber next winter.

    Have the beating up problem on my 26" AM hardtail, too. It sounds like I will go plus tires for the build. You have a great opinion for me!
    Btw, you might have to check the dimensions of 3.0 High Rollers and the frame. The website says the maximum size of tire the Moxie can take is 2.8 for 27.5 wheel. And I think the reason of the limit is for mud clearance. If you are riding in muddy area, 3.0 tires might cause you some problems.

    I am still buzzing from last night's ride. I summerized the Moxie with a 2.35 Rock Razor rear to go with the 2.5 DHF now that it's dry here. Grippy, fast, and so much fun. On my favourite trail I pulled away from my crew who were all on 27.5 FS bikes and came within a few seconds of my PR. The Moxie is not just great for a HT, but will hang with the likes of 134s, Troys, and Spartans. Enduro hard tail may sound like marketing BS, but the Moxie is the real deal. I am liking the cheap Fox Grip 34, but may try a reduced offset 36 class fork in the future.

    That's awesome. How is the 29'er setup in the rough and bumpy though compared to FS?

    EDIT: more picts required

    It seemed pretty smooth last night, not much different from my Endorphin, but we didn't hit the really rough trail. The Rock Razor has quite a bit of volume and probably helped.

    I'm patiently waiting for the second batch to arrive in the states. I'm initially going to build with a 160mm 27.5 Pike I have lying around, but who's got the longest 29er fork on their Moxie, and how does it feel?

    I have a 150mm 34 29 fork and think 160mm would be pretty good too. I will definitely be spending more time on my winter hardtail this summer.

    So Travis, whatís the biggest 29er tire thatíll fit with mudvroom?

    Did you get the long or the longer?

    470 seems short, my Large Full Stache is 484. An I missing something?

    What hardtail did you ride before?

    My 2.35 Rock Razor has 5mm clearance on both sides.

    5'9" on a long.

    I had a Mondraker Vantage HT frame and the aluminum was pretty stiff.

    Is that a thing? I though they only went to up to 140mm for 29".

    I'm ditching my 140mm 34, just ordered a 150mm Yari and a -1į angleset.

    The damper and air spring on the 34 are great, but I feel that the chassis is not up to the job. The thing folds itself down on very step trails and I get some brake shudder from it flexing harmonically.

    The Moxie just asks for a full on enduro chassis fork

    Very tempted by these.
    Can I ask what your full builds weigh, and what the frame weight was?
    My main concern is, how playful is it? I'm worried that the slack HA, Steep SA and low BB means that manualing and kicking the back out is more difficult. 'Playful-ness' is really important to me.
    Any feedback would be awesome, cheers all

    I have not weighed the frame or full bike. I can say that that the front end comes up when I want, no problem popping off small features, and it does small drops just fine.

    I rode with Travis this weekend. I did fail the MTBR-Collective and forgot to get any action shots of him riding.

    I can tell you he was schooling us all on our FS bikes and he definitely went full enduro on it. The Moxie is a sweet ride.

    I'm 5'11" and with my usual setup [1" setback dropper and 50mm stem] I'd fit a "long" just fine.
    Safe riding,

    Pipedream Moxie

    Thanks for letting me swing a leg over you Moxie Travis. Your bike is dialled, was comfortable right away. Even with that tiny stem it felt a touch long for me (though possible I could get used to being a bit more stretched out) sitting down but standing felt great, it was nice to have all that room in the cockpit. What length crank arms do you have on there?

    I figured it might be too long for you because it's a pretty lonnnng bike. I have 175s from previous build and they are OK with 29 wheels, but I need shorter with 27.5+. I'll have to look into that before next wet season.

    It was a great weekend and I ended up with over 2km of vertical (1.4 on the Moxie), with a greatest hits list of local descents.

    My Moxie has been shipped from the factory, so should be with me early next week. Still awaiting parts for my wheel build too.

    I'll weigh the frame once I have it, but Pipedream quote 2600g for the bare frame and 2800g with drop outs, axle, hose clips etc.

    One of the best riding trips to Cumby ever. UROC is truly doing some outstanding work up there. You folks should be really proud. We are members of the club buy lots of their swag and generally only ride there once a year itís that good. I think well need to get up there more often. We keep eyeing property up there and just keeps getting more expensive

    Last night I rode the 27.5+ Butchers because my 29 Rock Razor has a leak at the bead. I PRd a rough DH track that I had previously set on my Warden. Beyond blown away at this old man/bike combo.

    The local shop still building the demo bike and I want to try out the geometry first.
    Travis just keep telling us it's a no brainer choice to have a Moxie.

    I tried 27.5 + rear, 29 2.5 front last night. Wasn't as fast, might have just been me. Next FS bike will be 29 with similar geometry to the Moxie. I am trying to get my shop to bring in a demo Rootdown. I see a micro resurgence happening for hard tails

    Threaded is better, but I installed a Wheels Manufacturing PF BB that threaded the 2 sides together. It seems like a good solution, however I'm glad my BB is threaded.

    I looked at that BB, but $100USD and a bunch or weight complexity to solve a problem a lot of frames don't have seems like it's not worth it. Luckily there are lots of great HT frames with threaded BBs.

    I just got home from a ride that included our local DH course. It's a little out of my comfort zone but was completed with only a little drama, when I snagged my toe on a rock in a tight, steep section. The Moxie continues to amaze me.
    I got some bad ideas in my head.

    Can anyone chime in relating to the Moxie frame weights? Also, has anyone residing in the United States purchased a moxie frame, how much was shipping?

    Lastly, how is the paint, weld and overall fabrication quality of the frames?

    Many thanks,

    The frame quality is top notch, easily above any other steel frame I ever had.
    Had several Surlys and a couple of Singulars before

    Painted Longer frame with all fittings and axle = 2850g.

    Frame is made by Ora, one of the best steel frame manufacturers. Paint is good with clear coat over the stickers. Paint just a little thin behind the HT at the TT/DT junction.
    BB threads nice and smooth, seat tube ID reamed accurately.
