    Great looking bike.....

    The seat post looks like it is going 100 MPH already....

    Very nice color coordination. Needs mud now...

    Yikies!

    Is that a carbon railed fizik?

    If so good luck with that on a MTB. (you might be ok if you weigh under 140lbs)

    I ride that same saddle on my road bike and broke one after about 500 miles. (although Fizik replaced it free of charge )

    I ride the Ti railed version on my MTB.

    So far it is the most comfortable , and in my opinion the best looking saddle around.

    Oh yeah!

    I almost forgot to say that is a sweet looking rig!

    How do you like the C'Dale frame?

    Any Idea how much it weighs?

    Thanks for the comments guys. As for the mud, you are right; i am heading out in a bit.
    Its looks good when clean, but so much better in her muddy glory with a beer in hand.
    I was fooling around with the idea of the carbon fizik for a while, but i to was hesitant about the carbon. I have been riding this saddle for almost 2 years on my road bike, and i just love it to death, so i took a chance. I do notice that i don't sit down on the saddle over the bumpy stuff, so i think i can get a way with it, i hope.
    I don't know the exact weight of the bike, i'll get back to you on that one. As for the frame, its no Seven , but i just love it. The geometry is dead on for me, and i like how it rides and feels.

    That thing looks fine. With that fork and a stiff frame it must track very very well. And the moots post is a perfect compliment to smooth some of the bumps. I, also, am not sure about carbon on a mtb, particularly at the seat rails... but as you say, you stand up alot on SS.

    Wow good looking seatpost. I bet that helps smooth out that stiff ride.

    Mud

    Just came back from a ride, the trails were mostly dry, except for some frozen and thawing mud patches. Great Ride.
    Looks better with the mud i think

    Cheers

    Just a quick question about the seat post..

    That bike is supa-cool! Wish I had one. Had a quick question though, as a newbie to SS, how does that Moots seat post "smooth some of the bumps"? Is it that the metal flexes?

    Sorry to jack, but just trying to get edu-macated

    Thanks.

    I just have to say, that is one of the best looking fcuking bikes I have ever seen. Nice job, I'll bet it climbs like a monkey on meth.

    the post is ti where as the rest of the bike is alu. ti is more forgiving than alu over rough terraine. so, yes, i guess the metal flexes to absorb some of the bump.

    moots set-up

    I hear ya' on the seatpost set-up. I have the same seatpost and every so often I think "It's about time for a new saddle," then I remember the wresslin' match of getting the existing saddle in the clamp and adjusted. About that time I decide my $10 WTB is the best saddle there ever was and will stay on my bike till it rots off.

    nice bike but....

    is it just me, or is zip tying a disc brake cable on a fork without V-brake bosses insanity?
    People are doing it on $500 Fox Forx as well.
    One would think they would catch on.

    "Handmade in USA" don't see that too often
