    Moots Mooto X YBB 29er Lefty

    Killer ride. So stable and agile at the same time. I'm smiling everytime my butts on the SLR.

    It's really stable but has quick smooth reaction to really tight singletrack. A tad harsher than my carbon flash 29er but I think that may be due to the edge carbon wheels on the flash. I'm going to switch wheels next week which should gve me a good comparison between the two frames. I have up to this point not really noticed the YBB except when I come home I see a good inch of movement on the back end. I can hammer out of the saddle and not feel the YBB in action which is what I really wanted out of this frame. Moots flat out knows how to build a top quality first class frame.

    Hi jb.

    Nice bike, and even nicer buildup, wow.
    What size is the ybb?
    What is the weight of this rocket? Must be really light, round about 22lbs?

    Beautiful bike! I am so close to pulling the trigger one one myself. I'm coming of a Superfly 100 and have been spending some time on carbon hardtails. I figured the combination of the Ti and softail would be the perfect in between. I've yet to throw a leg over one but I'm surprised by your comment that it rides harsher than your Flash?!

    I think the harshness is due to the Stans Arch wheels. My carbon flash 29er has Edge carbon wheels so it's not really a fair comparison. Trust me when I say that the ride is a little harsher but it's still a firm and compliant ride. 10 plus hour rides will be no problem with this set up but I'll will be trying the Edge wheels to compare the two rides.

    I would be very interested in your experiences with the Moots/Edge setup.

    I'm also interested to hear how the Edge experiment goes.

    Yep on the King headset. I think your looking at the mount for my Garmin 500. Look right behind it and you'll see the red top cap. I think the headtube is 12.5cm. It easily fits on the standard lefty mounts.

    I haven't forgot the Edge wheel swap out but I've been riding my Evolve. Give me another week or so.

    OK,
    I was able to put 60 miles on the Moots 29er with the edge wheels. Bike lost 260 grams of weight which really made the bike ride quicker and was really snappy the whole weekend. The front end was lighter which really allowed me to toss the front end around. Here in socal it was a very wet weekend but man the wheelset allowed me to really have a great time in crappy conditions. Probably the biggest thing I noticed was the harshness of the previous rides were gone. Smooth, firm but compliant with power to the pedals that I haven't seen with aluminum wheels. Edge carbon wheels are worth every penny oh and the Moots YBB 29er kicks ass as well.

    Who sells just the Lefty forks and which one is that? Fantastic looking bike. I think my next one is going to be a Moot-X YBB as well. I have been working through specs and have been debating a Fox, RocShox and DT Swiss fork. I have not even considered a Lefty.

    My local shop stocks lefty's for custom non cannondale builds. Now you can add a lefty to your choices.
