    You still waiting for your hub? Looking forward to seeing what it will look like with the new fork.

    I took a small detour on the way home. Fun riding, but horrible light for photography.



    The deal with the bash ring is explained here.

    Like the colors Duggus! Have you seen the new yellow frame sticker set yet? Might be a fun addition.

    Keyhaven salt marshes, Isle of Wight and the Needles in the far background.

    For anyone wondering about sizing, I am 5'10" and the medium 18" Moonlander fits me very well. On One Mary Bars, Brooks saddle, and Ergon grips, she's the most comfortable well balanced bike I have ever had. Crud Catcher 29er guards and A530 pedals she weighs 36 lbs, and I love this bike.

    Cool-blue Rhythm 2012 Moonlander XL

    Show off your Moonlanders-bournda_moonlanders-20-large.jpg
    XT front and rear brakes with 200mm discs (Brilliant)
    Hope Pro hubs front and rear (could not get standard hubs to adjust properly and rear freewheel collapsed twice)
    20/36 front Mr Whirly's (cannot buy just the 20t have to purchase the pair)
    XT shifters front and rear (mini shifters bite)
    1.5" riser handlebar (better geometry for my big frame)
    Lou and Bud rubber (Brilliant)
    Jet Black flat pedals & Jet black grips (std cheap grips would never stay put despite being wired on)
    Bit of red bling (Red rim tape, salsa quick release seat clamp and the red hope hubs)
    Brooks seat coming and I can finally say I am happy with it. Best bike I have ever owned bar none.

    2013 Mini Moonie - 16"

    Show off your Moonlanders-minimoonie.jpg
    Still pretty new, hence not much new on this one as yet:
    Jet Black blue flat pedals,
    Jet black blue handgrips
    Salsa blue seat clamp
    20/33 Mr whirly on front
    Will replace the hubs (freewheel looking dubious after 4 rides only) with Hopes. Needs the blue rim tape too thats on order
    Likewise for mini shifters and brakes (BB7s are so poor in my opinion and even after "bedding in" fail to pull the bike up in any hurry).

    In case your wondering about weights - I hung them both on the scales yesterday:
    Mini moonie weighted a smidge over 17kg (37pounds)

    While my XL (22") frame (including rear bag, lights and mud) was about 17.5kg (38pounds):

    How do you like the Jones Loop on your Moonlander? Did you feel the need to go with a longer stem (or a larger frame than normal?) in order to obtain the right reach?

    Cooool. I have mine setup with a Jones truss fork too.

    Curious to hear about your impressions with this setup.

    I removed the 36 outer and kept the 22. I have a 12-36 rear and it's more than low enough.
    I could easily have kept the 12-34. MRP chain keeper. Tubeless next

    Real happy with the front end now for rock riding on the coast, it is not that noticeable untill you up the pace a bit across loose pebbles and the ride is real smooth

    In case you're interested in another take, mine has 26t front and 11-34 in the back. Quite the perfect range for me as the high gearing is fast enough, yet the low gears allow crawling. I had a 22t chainring first, but I was using the high end of the cassette too much, spent a lot of time on the small 11t sprocket and generally felt like it was just too little. I could go for a 24t but rather not back to a 22t.

    Aren't the granny rings special on the MWOD? Where did you get the 26.
    However, for the type of terrain and hills I climb the 22 front and 12-36 is perfect gear range.
    I would like to put a mid cage shadow derailleur on at some point to quicken the shifting.

    After the fire they have flown over and dropped straw over the entire burned area in hopes of keeping the dirt on the mountain.

    My preference on my Moonlander is 20/34 in front and a 11-34 in back. I'd be happier with a 36 in back. I rarely use the 34 ring in front. I have found that with Bud and Lou and 5 psi, I can ride over and through almost anything, the lower the gear, the better the crawling.

    You can use any 58 BCD chainring if you have a single chainring.

    The 26t is a Surly steel MWOD chainring I bought at my LBS. It has ten evenly spaced holes with 58 BCD, so you use five (small) holes to mount it to the crank and the other five to attach an outboard chainring, or in my case a DIY bash guard. Pictures for clarification here: DIY: Bash ring for Surly MWOD (58 BCD / 26 t)

    EDIT: The outboard chainring or bash guard is mounted through four out of five holes. The fifth hole is naturally blocked by the crank.
