    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.

    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)

    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.
