    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.

    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...

    Good job!

    My Moots Compact.

    I've got the brooks leather bar tape to match the saddle, but haven't got it on there yet.

    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.
