    Reunion

    A few bicycles parts that have been living separate lives on both sides of the Atlantic ocean since before Christmas reunited yesterday. It was all good.

    No, they didn't. I bought a replacement in December and took most of the components with me then. I visited the US last week and took the frame with me on the return.

    Hey! I built that!

    (Still no issues, I hope, eh?)

    At least you did the first time around. And you bled the brakes, which still work great after a few months in storage.

    Remember how you commented on "Moots having a funny interpretation of the international disc brake standard", because you had to load up with shims when mounting the rear caliper? Well, with an XTR rear hub, I had to take them all off. Now the rotor sits dead centered with no shims at all.

    Maybe it is American Classic who has a funny interpretation, what do I know.

    Did you get this one built without the embarrassment of cantilever bosses?
    Very nice looking.

    Yes, CBFZ - cantilever boss free zone, except for the fork. Note: wide angle ass shot makes the seatpost looks absurdly tall.

    It looks fast just leaning there.
    I didn't realize Moots used a replaceable hanger, which is odd considering I live, ride and race(d) in Colorado and see them all the time. Merlin and Seven (which I've owned, haven't owned a Moots yet) claim their hangers are all but indestructible.

    Wouldn't surprise me at all.

    Their quality is suspect at times.
