    Early Adopter: Moto Carbon 2


    Moto Carbon 2 (Euro version). Added the Joplin and white handlebar myself.
    Climbs like a hardtail, rocks downhill.
    I guess it was too early in production to get the red swingarm link. I'm tempted to order it.

    Sweet ride. The black and red is by far my favorite Moto color scheme

    Pretty dangerous to have that Monkeylite XC bar on a AM/FR rig isn't it?

    I wouldnt worry about the carbon bars as I have used them for years and they seem fine and handle 6ft drops ok.
    Your like looks awesome mate and I am considering buying one soon. Should I sell the nomad?
    Have a look at some of my biking photography here guys.

    We have some great riding out here but no chairlifts. There is a selection of France and NZ images on the link also.
    The Lake district is a cool place and has some cool single track big hills and roman roads.
    The moto 2 would love it here but it retails for 3,500 here in the uk

    [SIZE=2]Those red rims really make the black bike look nice, shame there are no good dealers round here to go give one a spin.

    How nice if the Fox fork was Red too... or at least black... Anyway, the bike sure looks like a heck of a ride! Can you compare this one with a Prophet?

    Dhx 4.0

    It measures 200mm. I read that it was specially valved for this bike - I don't know but it climbs amazing and I don't even use the "+" setting of the ProPedal.
    And yeah, I don't think the carbon bars will be a problem. I'm not doing any big drops.
