    Moots FrosTi

    Just got done building this up for a customer. Really, really nice bike. It built up incredibly easy.....no clearance issues/etc. I wish I would have ordered one of these while they were available.....maybe next year.

    That's pretty badass. Wish I had the cash for something like that, guess the Pugs will have to do

    The only thing I'd change is run a Ti fork to match and keep it more uniform. Just my opinon though.

    Any chance you measured the HTA before sending it home? And is that fork the 450 or 468?

    I needs ta know!

    I didn't get a chance to measure the HT angle......the fork is the 468mm model(which is what the frame was designed around).

    I have a feeling it's steeper than what I'd consider ideal.....

    ooooohhh....aaaaahhhhh!

    very nice!

    I sold all my 26" Ibis Ti bikes earlier this year and built up a MOOTS MXZ 29er and a Moots Psychlo-x, I was running out of $$$ and had to settle for a 2012 Fatback for my first snowbike.

    Given the choice..one just like this would be on the rack!

    How much did it end up weighing?

    WOW!.....WOW! One of the prettiest FB's I've ever seen! Looks a bit (or allot) more "XCish than many as well. I do wish it was more affordable... but can now easily see why it's not.

    Nicely done Moots! (and Donkey!)

    Nice indeed. In fact, this build looks nicer than the pics Moots was using to promote the bike.
    I'm sure this has been covered elsewhere, but what's the reason behind the tall front end? This bike, like the Muk, 907 and Fatback, has the tall head tube + tall fork. Does that make for better handling in the snow?
