    My Smoothie

    2004 Smoothie Ti w/ PUSH'd RP3 - 19"
    PUSH'd Fox Float RLC - 100mm
    CK Ti Headset
    Moots Laid Back Seatpost
    Moots Ti Beam Stem
    Moots 25x5 Flat Bar
    Control Tech Carbon Barends
    CK ISO / DT Swiss Super Comp / Mavic 819 UST Wheels
    Phil Wood Ti BB
    RF Next Cranks
    Action-Tec / Boone Chainrings (29x42)
    X.0 Shifters Grip-Shift (f) - X.0 Trigger (r)
    X.0 RD / XTR FD
    XTR Cassette (11-34)
    Magura Marta Brakes
    Crank Bros Candy Pedals
    Hutch Spider UST Tires 2.3 (f) / 2.1 (r)
    ODI Lock-On Rogue Grips
    WTB Laser V Ti Saddle
    Hope Quick Release

    This frame is a work of art. Like all Moots, the welds are perfect. Bike handles like an absolute dream and is the most comfortable bike I have ever ridden. Looking for a new project for next year and leaning toward a Cinco to add to the stable. I know the all Ti Moots F/S bike has gone the way of the dodo with the launch of the Zirkel, an absolute shame in my mind. I have a couple of things on order to add. A Boone Ti 40-tooth outer chainring, LOVE the 2x9 set-up. Also switching to a medium cage RD so I have an '06 X.0 carbon cage RD on the way. The Carbon barends listed above were added after the above photo, waiting for the other new bits to retake.

    Thanks, but my bike was in the workstand Monday getting some maintenance. My friend Matt said it was probably him that passed you up there. His YBB is running SRAM and disc brakes.

    Thanks dude... I've not ridden in the past two weeks! due to the heat out here, and my being lazy, and I'm going thru widthdrawls.. gotta make a road trip to the mountains soon!

    As for the I9's... they are the stiffest wheel I've ever ridden, and the sounds is like nothing else I've herd.. it just has that "Quality Bearing" sound.. what can I say, they've exceeded my expectations! AND I've yet to use one of my spare spokes! I doubt I ever will..

    Hi there

    great to hear re the wheelset. My CK Hubs sound like Uzzi´s where as my Hadleys sound like gatttling guns. Where do the I9´s fit?

    Yes two weeks no riding, would bring on the withdrawls.

    Will let you know my thoughts on the wheels. Am building up a Ti carbon bike. Starting with a Titus Ti ExoGrid frame.... Check out the frame. http://titusti.com

    All good, am heading to the US of A 12 June to pick it up, only as far as Ca though, so not out your way. Have fingers crossed the I9 wheels will be reaady, thye think they will be, but not 100% sure.

    I've got a 2003 Moots YBB. My preference is for endurance riding, and it suits me perfectly. Light and climbs great, but just a hint of give in the back to take the edge off, I love it. Here's how she is built:

    Moots stem, handlebar, and layback post
    Moots signature Serfas saddle
    XTR drivetrain
    Rockshox SID Team
    XTR v-brakes
    Crossmax SL wheels (Crossmax XL for training)
    Ergon grips (not pictured)
    Bontrager Revolt Super X tubeless ready tires (not pictured)

    Edit: Just wanted to add, my YBB and I survived our first endurance race, the Firecracker 50 in Breckenridge. My YBB did great, and I saw two other YBBs out on the course, one ridden by a woman.. I'm completely happy with my YBB, it suits me perfectly for long distance riding.

    The Dream Machine

    Ever since I built this bike it's never treated me wrong. I take great pride in
    owning this art. It's made me a better rider and a better person(in my mind).
    In short I will own this bike until I die, that's how much I enjoy it.

    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)

    Happy with the Moots

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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.

    mooto x ybb 18"

    Here's my 29er. Now has Eriksen Sweetpost, and White Bros. forks, plus WTB 2.55 WeirWolfs. I use the bike as my only trail bike now, love it on everything. Climbing is normal here at 9318 ft. elevation, what goes up must come down; so I recently switched from WaltWorks rigid steel forks to these White Bros. forks. I like the big rotors added on the El Camino setup. I feel very confident this will take me anywhere I need to go. One thing that is awesome about this frame is that I run everything from Road and Cross tires, to 2.55 mountain tires, this is so versatile of a design. Going to Mary Bars soon.

    My other Moots

    Wanted to put this out there. I just redid my grips, and brought in from the cold. This is Moots #330- Mountaineer (steel) made by Kent in the original Sore Saddle, back in the 80's. I picked it up for $150, a few years ago; added the "extra-cycle", and now use it for my townie bike/grocery getter. Cork shellacked the grips last night.

    Is that a modified xtr m960 crankset? If so where did you get it and how much did it cost? I have seen those on Jeff Jones frames.

    yep, i bought them from a friend who upgraded to the new xtr, i cut off the big ring holes and polished them up at work, i am using a surly stainless 104/34 ring that i had a dude at my work make the hole bigger by 1mm in so it would work on the stupid shimano 102 bcd.

    Here's mine! Bought in the USA (in the MTBR classifieds!) and imported it in Belgium. Now, the bike know the taste of the legendary Belgian mud

    Weight is about 9.3kg with pedals. I expect 9.1kg as final weight with some modifications.

    Here are a few pix, just coming back from the first ride:

    And just another reason why Moots puts their name in three different places......just incase there is too much mud on the down tube sticker. Love it!

    Just got this all ready on Thursday. Due to an out-of-town guest and rain as well, I have not ridden it on the trails. This is my first Moots and first 29er. It will be ridden early next week and then I can see how the setup works, and make adjustments as needed.

    Tha bar is a bit high but it is also 28" wide (I have long arms) and gets me leaning forward due to the width. That and a laidback seatpost are the primary changes I would consider after I get used to the bike.

    Thanks! Yes, it is set to 80mm though it came at 120. Most of my fork experience is with the Talas, Float, Revelation, and Pike. I hope this one does not dissapoint. I wanted a 20mm TA so I held off on the build till I got this one.

    No, not really. It's just a little bit of grease wich goes out of the shock but it's not important. Mine is pretty old and I've a new one wainting in a box. I've planned to change it next year after more than 5 years of use (one by me and 4 by it's previous owner)

    Here's Mine

    Here's my new to me Mooto-X YBB. I purchased it near the beginning of the year from MTBR member "Flyer"
    (you can actually see the bike with his build above this post). I still have a bit of work to do.
    The wheel set is a scavenged Laserdisc Trail setup that will be replaced by Arches/Kings soon.
    I'm still playing with the bar/stem/grip stuff, but it's pretty much done.

    What kind of red grips are those on the Moots? Cheers.

    Very clean build. You might need to do something about that chain though.

    All those gears kinda make it look bogged down. Put WI eccentric hub on the back and you will stop dropping your chain and clean up the look quite a bit!

    Here are a couple of pictures of my 20" YBB. The main changes from these pictures are swapping out the 80mm Sid Team for a 100mm Reba Team and throwing a 2.35 tire on up front and a 2.2 on the back. If everything goes ok I plan on getting an adapter for the frame and going to discs front and rear at the end of this year.

    I can't stand moots the company. They were absolutely abhorrent to deal with. As soon as I got my moots, I stripped the decals off. Out of protest against them, I will not post a picture of my bike, and I won't tell people that it's a nice bike.

    It's a shame steering people away from moots, but dealing with moots made me wish I bought a Seven.

    Just curious.....what was the problem? I've honestly never heard of someone having anything but an awesome experience with the folks at Moots.

    1) Moots was insistent I go through a dealer that had a terrible fit procedure. I ended up getting a custom fit somewhere else because the dealer they recommended sucked so hard.
    2) Even after I let them know their recommendedation sucked, Moots wouldn't let me buy directly from them even though I'm only a couple of hours from Steamboat.
    3) After sending them my custom frame specs it took Moots two months to get back to me just to say they'd recommend a stock Moots frame. More than three months after that, I got my frame. This was after they told me their manufacturing backlog was only 4-8 weeks.
    4) Most importantly, from my initial contact with Moots, their attitude was condescending and lame.

    Eight decals wasn't a lot to remove, but removing them helped rid some of the bad vibes I feel when I take my dream bike out.. It's a bummer to save nearly 10 years for your dream bike and have any bad feelings about riding it.

    Holy shZt!

    cavani: that is the most unique Moots Mooto YBB I've ever seen! That rigid titanium unicrown fork sets off the whole package. Going with the pink accents like the King x Hope Tech takes balls and even more so, running the Brooks grips/saddle. (I didn't like those grips at all, the leather donuts, spoke threading system, logically sounded genius, but performed inadequate)

    The brooks leather grips are a bit large but will be better once they have bin used a little bit more.

    Damn shame about your experience Fugger. They do make a really sweet bike, but

    3) After sending them my custom frame specs it took Moots two months to get back to me just to say they'd recommend a stock Moots frame.
    That right there would have sent me packing.

    I own a 2006 Moots Compact I picked up on e-bay...totally love it, even more so because of what I paid. (ps. I'll update the iPhone pic with a better one tomorrow)

    Moots Pscyhlo-X with S&S Couplers

    I know this is MTBR and all, but I didn't want to create a new acct on the sister site. Besides, this ride has been in the dirt more than the rest in my stable (of late). Rolled Mr. Toad's in Tahoe on it. I've beefed it up a bit with some MTB parts...

    08 Pscyhlo-X with S&S Couplers
    Alpha Q CX carbon fork
    TRP Euro-X brakes
    Dura-ace group

    Fizik Aliante saddle
    CK Sotto Voce headset

    In response to Fugger's experience, I believe you can fault an individual or process but not the company as a whole. I have a Ti 29er from a competitor (in CO), and in researching/reading forum's, they too were slammed for customer service. Turns out they went thru a difficult period of transition and lost some ground. Still turned out a quality product, just couldn't manage/set expectations. Over time they improved, but it took alot of constructive feedback. Don't throw out the baby with the bathwater. As for Moots, they will struggle at times to meet demand and expectations, but the guys in the shop will always put their passion into the frames/parts. I had some challenges with one salesperson but he is no longer on staff. Those types get weeded out quickly.
    Hopefully, you can look past the transgression and enjoy the ride. After all, lots of folks would give their left you-know-what to have your sled. Enough of the stump speech, I'm gonna go roll some dirt!!!

    Just built this up. I switched from a YBB to this. My ass was waaay too sore from new englands rocks and roots. This is like riding a pillow. Almost everything on the bike i bought used except for the bashring and the front/rear derailleur. Some parts were also from the YBB

    Cool-blue Rhythm My "old school is cool" Moots in her "road warrior" mode.

    1998 Rigor' w/ RF Turbine (ISIS) crank + SKF BB / '01 Marz Bomber fork / CrossMax wheelset + 1.5" Xeniths / Avid Ti brakes / Brooks B-17 Imperial / and so on...

    However, the dirt is calling so my other wheels and clip-ins will be gracing her shortly...

    ...Also, yes this is my first post -- I tried to post an introductory post in the General Forum first, but I received a "must have at least 5 posts to start a new thread" notice. Oh well...

    BTW, if anyone is looking to swap their 17" Rigor frame for a 19-20" frame (mine's a 19.5"), LMK. Mine works, but I could use a lower top tube.

    Lots of beautiful bikes here, but most so clean they look they've hardly been ridden. Mine is a bit rougher around the edges. I'll spare you the pix of the dents in the down tube and chain stay, and ingonre the fact that I need to replace the seals and wipers on my fork. The kit has been sitting on my workbench for 6 months and every time I get some time to do the repair, I go riding instead. I've put between 12,000 and 15,000 miles on it since picking it up used in 2005.

    1997 YBB Superlight w/ 2x8 drive train and miscellaneous parts mix from 1986 - 2011.

    Another Mountaineer... # 397

    I did post this in the VRC as well, but since this is the Moots Forum I'll put it here, too...



    '86 Mountaineer, 16" frame w/ 26" wheels. I was measured for this frame by Kent Eriksen in January 1986, and it's been everywhere... up Pearl Pass twice, Moab a dozen times or more, and all over Colorado. Fits like a dream, always does what I ask of her, and so versatile... I couldn't ask for more.

    Here is my YBB. Love the new MootoX but not ready to buy one.

    Anyone convert their YBB to 650b? I kind of prefer cross country tires so not looking to stuff big rubber in there.

    Hey edebolt,

    Very nice looking YBB! Did you have Moots do the refurb and add the disc brake mounts? I have a 2001 YBB and am thinking about sending it to Moots to have that done. I have heard that running a 650b on the front of the YBB works very well. I don't believe a 650b will fit the rear.

    Falta. yeah I did the Moots factory refurb a few years ago. I highly recommend it. I think my frame is about year 2000.

    One thing I wish I had done was have the rear brake guides drilled out for hydro lines. Not sure if Moots will do that...

    Just put my '97 YBB SuperLight back together after having a disc brake tab added to the rear a couple of weeks ago. Added the disc brakes so I can swap to 29'er wheels with cross tires for gravel grinder rides.

    Still my favorite bike of any I've ever owned. Nearing 20k miles on it since I bought it used in '04.

    ^ Beautiful bike. Congrats. They are always just so classic, yet modern looking.

    I went with a Steve Potts 29er (with Fox 100mm ) after highly considering the Mooto X 29er YBB. Have had the Potts since early Sept. and with today's ride I hit 992 miles on it. Nothing not to love about it, except sometimes I wonder if my 61 yr. old arthritic neck would have been better served with the YBB thingy.

    I'm ok for about the first 90 -100 minutes or so, and then I start feeling it. Here in LA, things are just always really rutted, rocky and dry from the drought. If we have even a a third of an inch of rain , the trails/fireroads are a lot more forgiving for a few weeks. We have some in the forecast for Tuesday , hopefully it'll happen.

    Would love to test ride the Rogue 650B....

    I went for the black decals, shock, and mavic wheels. Still need to swap out the seat post, and stem bits for black.

    Put the 29'er gravel grinder wheels on my old 26'er frame last night and got the first ride in this morning. This thing is a ton of fun as a gravel bike, and the cost of conversion was less than $240. I can switch between wheels in under 2 minutes and be back to MTB. Still a great bike at nearly 19 years old.
