    My Smoothie

    2004 Smoothie Ti w/ PUSH'd RP3 - 19"
    PUSH'd Fox Float RLC - 100mm
    CK Ti Headset
    Moots Laid Back Seatpost
    Moots Ti Beam Stem
    Moots 25x5 Flat Bar
    Control Tech Carbon Barends
    CK ISO / DT Swiss Super Comp / Mavic 819 UST Wheels
    Phil Wood Ti BB
    RF Next Cranks
    Action-Tec / Boone Chainrings (29x42)
    X.0 Shifters Grip-Shift (f) - X.0 Trigger (r)
    X.0 RD / XTR FD
    XTR Cassette (11-34)
    Magura Marta Brakes
    Crank Bros Candy Pedals
    Hutch Spider UST Tires 2.3 (f) / 2.1 (r)
    ODI Lock-On Rogue Grips
    WTB Laser V Ti Saddle
    Hope Quick Release

    This frame is a work of art. Like all Moots, the welds are perfect. Bike handles like an absolute dream and is the most comfortable bike I have ever ridden. Looking for a new project for next year and leaning toward a Cinco to add to the stable. I know the all Ti Moots F/S bike has gone the way of the dodo with the launch of the Zirkel, an absolute shame in my mind. I have a couple of things on order to add. A Boone Ti 40-tooth outer chainring, LOVE the 2x9 set-up. Also switching to a medium cage RD so I have an '06 X.0 carbon cage RD on the way. The Carbon barends listed above were added after the above photo, waiting for the other new bits to retake.

    Thanks, but my bike was in the workstand Monday getting some maintenance. My friend Matt said it was probably him that passed you up there. His YBB is running SRAM and disc brakes.

    Thanks dude... I've not ridden in the past two weeks! due to the heat out here, and my being lazy, and I'm going thru widthdrawls.. gotta make a road trip to the mountains soon!

    As for the I9's... they are the stiffest wheel I've ever ridden, and the sounds is like nothing else I've herd.. it just has that "Quality Bearing" sound.. what can I say, they've exceeded my expectations! AND I've yet to use one of my spare spokes! I doubt I ever will..

    Hi there

    great to hear re the wheelset. My CK Hubs sound like Uzzi´s where as my Hadleys sound like gatttling guns. Where do the I9´s fit?

    Yes two weeks no riding, would bring on the withdrawls.

    Will let you know my thoughts on the wheels. Am building up a Ti carbon bike. Starting with a Titus Ti ExoGrid frame.... Check out the frame. http://titusti.com

    All good, am heading to the US of A 12 June to pick it up, only as far as Ca though, so not out your way. Have fingers crossed the I9 wheels will be reaady, thye think they will be, but not 100% sure.

    I've got a 2003 Moots YBB. My preference is for endurance riding, and it suits me perfectly. Light and climbs great, but just a hint of give in the back to take the edge off, I love it. Here's how she is built:

    Moots stem, handlebar, and layback post
    Moots signature Serfas saddle
    XTR drivetrain
    Rockshox SID Team
    XTR v-brakes
    Crossmax SL wheels (Crossmax XL for training)
    Ergon grips (not pictured)
    Bontrager Revolt Super X tubeless ready tires (not pictured)

    Edit: Just wanted to add, my YBB and I survived our first endurance race, the Firecracker 50 in Breckenridge. My YBB did great, and I saw two other YBBs out on the course, one ridden by a woman.. I'm completely happy with my YBB, it suits me perfectly for long distance riding.

    The Dream Machine

    Ever since I built this bike it's never treated me wrong. I take great pride in
    owning this art. It's made me a better rider and a better person(in my mind).
    In short I will own this bike until I die, that's how much I enjoy it.

    Fork

    The fork is super flexy. I don't think that I would want to run it on dirt. Maybe the monstrosity that MikeSee runs with the bigger legs and heavier crown, but even then I bet it would be a flexy flyer. On my SS I'm thinking of going with a Black sheep truss ti fork.

    jim
    Fatter than most.

    Moots Cinco (ish) perhaps quatro and a half

    Here is my cinco which has become like an old friend this past year, currently riding between 125 and 175 miles a week ( commute to work, everybody wins). I like to have custom and have played around with this frame, wanted to try different links from ventana but decided to try the shock first (ebay cheaper) The shock I like most (currently at push for tuning) is a 7.25x 1.75 this makes the travel about 4.5 and drops the bb a good amount. The bike feels much more stable with the low bb, more xc, and awsome on the downhill. Like I say love the bike it is made up with weight, and durability in mind (arn't they all) here is the build
    Frame moots cinco
    fork, fox talas ( push tuned)
    American classic wheels, stans notubes (crap tires so heavy)
    sram xo shifterers and der
    Race face cranks (does the trick but I miss my old xtr 960s)
    Hope brakes
    misc moots bike bits
    Brooks limited edition swallow saddle (very proud of this, hope to have for a long time)

    great bike even better with the modified shock (at least for me) hope to have it for a long time put on many, many miles and only replace the parts that break (wish that crank would break)

    Happy with the Moots

    Here is my 2005 YBB- 2007 FOX Talas 32, XTR shifters, XTR front and rear der, RF deus cranks, BB7 brakes, Crossmax, Thomson post and stem. King headset. The other is my Mooto-X 2001 White Bros, Full XTR, BB7 brakes, Delgado wheels, King, etc... I am working on building up a Cinco and an old Smoothie. I am done after that... maybe.

    I'll have my new 2007 YBB in a few weeks! I just ordered it about 2 weeks ago!

    I'm excited

    EDIT: Well I guess I'll tell you what WILL be on the YBB:

    Moots seatpost/stem
    07 Fox RLC Fork
    Chris King Headset (Red)
    Mavic Crossmax SLR Wheelset
    07 Sram X.O RD/Triggers

    As you can see I'm starting fresh! Coming from an oldschool 95 Homegrown frame. World of a difference!

    Still trying to figure out brakes (probably Avid Juicy Ultimates), crankset, FD, pedals, saddle, cassette, and handlebar.

    Any recommendations would be awesome!

    Thanks,

    moots tres, quatro, cinco

    Ok love my moots but also like to play around with bikes, this was a simple hack that has turned my cinco from a jack of all trades into a master. I bought this Ventana adjustable rocker on ebay (cheep) just to try it out and it works perfectly. now it has 3, 3.5,4 or 5 inch travel. Ventana also has a 6" travel rocker if you want to step it up.

    Okay, how come BeerOrKid's Mooto-X is the only one with the extra tube that angles up from the top tube to the the seatpost. I'm starting to worry mine isn't going to have that extra support. Is it a size thing? A rider weight thing?

    I ordered the size 19", and I'm 6'1" and about 190lbs. Should I expect it to come with it?

    Doug, I'm no expert, but the pattern I've seen is that support tube you're worried about is only on the smaller frames, or 29" wheel frames, where the top tube has to slope down more to give more standover height for shorter people, or where the seat stays are forced higher up due the the larger wheels. With the more "compact" geometry, or the heigher seat stay/seat tube weld point, they add that support tube so the seat tube isn't too severely cantilevered where it extends above the seat tube/top tube weld.

    I read on the now defunct moots forum that the 18 was the only one with the extra tube. But now that they have a 17 I bet it has one as well.

    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")

    ...Just a Note, the 2007 Moots Catalog claims the newly available 17 incher sized MOOTO CROSS is ONLY available as a RIGOR (no YBB option on this size) to all who are interested!

    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.

    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.

    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:

    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.
