    Thanks HOser, that makes perfect sense. I forgot about the standover height issues and instead was thinking about rider weight and reinforcing the seat-tube. Funny I noticed the missing tube, but didn't notice (until now) that the frames without it don't angle downward nearly as much as the one with the support tube. Funny that Moots's official pic of that bike on their site shows the support tube that few people will likely get (assuming 29ers continue to be purchased primarily by those >5'11")

    The support tube is only needed for 18" mootoX YBB, since YBB requires certain length of the wishbone. To accomodate YBB on the 18" frame with a reasonable bb height moots has to have the same seat tube length on the 18" frame as on 19" one. I am 5'11" and used to own 18" MootoX YBB and bb height was too low. Now I am on 19" MootoX rigor with sliding dropouts and it fits much better with 90mm stem than 18" with 100mm stem.

    I'm finally able to post my ride here among the Moots family. Here it is - a recently refinished 1997 YBB. I think the 100mm Reba might be a bit much, but still playing with setup.

    Bike looks nice btw..

    Bent top tube is for the little people

    Nope, you didn't miss anything.....the 15" frame has a gaited top tube for standover clearance for the short people is all.

    That's a Moots stem, right? How long have you had your frame?

    I placed an order with them in January and received my frame in April and I'm still waiting for a stem from them.

    Moots Stem yes - but I got it in a trade with a buddy of mine.

    Sounds weird on the time frame for the stem....are you dealing directly with Moots or is there some bike shop in the middle?

    Both. I've been going through my LBS until I stopped hearing from them so I contacted Moots directly. They put me on a 'list' for a stem. I was told it would take 2 weeks. That was about 3 weeks ago.

    Hope to get it soon. My Forte stem isn't that hot.

    Thanks,

    Moots YBB just back from refurb

    Just sent back my 1994 YBB to CO for a new YBB shock and an overhaul and upgraded most of my parts (actually, maybe everything now that I replaced brakes over the weekend). Figured I'd post a shot or three.

    I agree with you: the bike looks great.

    I believe that the bent top tube is available as an option on the YBB: it's referred too as the YBBent. I plan to order a Mooto-X YBBent in January...

    Okay, here you go. I rode my Mooto-X YBB at this year's TransRockies and thought it the perfect ride for the event. Of the whole 350 or so miles, I'd say there were only about 2 miles that I wished I had beefier rear suspension, other than that, the bike was good fun and the 29er wheels had me cruising at 50mph on a couple stretches of forest road and even helped me and a couple other 29er-guys Monster Truck our way over some debris torrents that had everyone else around us walking.

    mooto x ybb 18"

    Here's my 29er. Now has Eriksen Sweetpost, and White Bros. forks, plus WTB 2.55 WeirWolfs. I use the bike as my only trail bike now, love it on everything. Climbing is normal here at 9318 ft. elevation, what goes up must come down; so I recently switched from WaltWorks rigid steel forks to these White Bros. forks. I like the big rotors added on the El Camino setup. I feel very confident this will take me anywhere I need to go. One thing that is awesome about this frame is that I run everything from Road and Cross tires, to 2.55 mountain tires, this is so versatile of a design. Going to Mary Bars soon.

    My other Moots

    Wanted to put this out there. I just redid my grips, and brought in from the cold. This is Moots #330- Mountaineer (steel) made by Kent in the original Sore Saddle, back in the 80's. I picked it up for $150, a few years ago; added the "extra-cycle", and now use it for my townie bike/grocery getter. Cork shellacked the grips last night.

    Is that a modified xtr m960 crankset? If so where did you get it and how much did it cost? I have seen those on Jeff Jones frames.

    yep, i bought them from a friend who upgraded to the new xtr, i cut off the big ring holes and polished them up at work, i am using a surly stainless 104/34 ring that i had a dude at my work make the hole bigger by 1mm in so it would work on the stupid shimano 102 bcd.

    Here's mine! Bought in the USA (in the MTBR classifieds!) and imported it in Belgium. Now, the bike know the taste of the legendary Belgian mud

    Weight is about 9.3kg with pedals. I expect 9.1kg as final weight with some modifications.

    Here are a few pix, just coming back from the first ride:

    Now these are mountain bike pictures.
    And just another reason why Moots puts their name in three different places......just incase there is too much mud on the down tube sticker. Love it!

    Just got this all ready on Thursday. Due to an out-of-town guest and rain as well, I have not ridden it on the trails. This is my first Moots and first 29er. It will be ridden early next week and then I can see how the setup works, and make adjustments as needed.

    Tha bar is a bit high but it is also 28" wide (I have long arms) and gets me leaning forward due to the width. That and a laidback seatpost are the primary changes I would consider after I get used to the bike.

    Thanks! Yes, it is set to 80mm though it came at 120. Most of my fork experience is with the Talas, Float, Revelation, and Pike. I hope this one does not dissapoint. I wanted a 20mm TA so I held off on the build till I got this one.

    No, not really. It's just a little bit of grease wich goes out of the shock but it's not important. Mine is pretty old and I've a new one wainting in a box. I've planned to change it next year after more than 5 years of use (one by me and 4 by it's previous owner)

    Here's Mine

    Here's my new to me Mooto-X YBB. I purchased it near the beginning of the year from MTBR member "Flyer"
    (you can actually see the bike with his build above this post). I still have a bit of work to do.
    The wheel set is a scavenged Laserdisc Trail setup that will be replaced by Arches/Kings soon.
    I'm still playing with the bar/stem/grip stuff, but it's pretty much done.
