    Ha. Don't knock me....

    Here's mine. This was the most initial build ever.

    Tires now match. It's got stainless steel cages now, instead of those ugly black one. Moots layback post with a saddle that's level. Got a garmin 305, so the ugly zip-ties and computer wires are all gone too.

    Other than that, 57.5 Vamoots, with DA9 and Open Pros.

    Late to post...

    but here it is. I built it up at the beginning of the summer and I'm just getting around to the photos.

    Ok, I figure it's high time to add my Moots to this thread too. I got this bike about a year and a half ago now, and I still smile every time I ride.

    Winter project

    I just recently finished swapping out 9 speed Dura Ace/7701 wheels for 2007 Campy Record/Eurus on my 2001 Vamoots. Its just like having a new bike. Now if only the snow will melt.

    I thought it might get that kind of response. :-) Sent it off to Spectrum Powder Works in Colorado cause I just wanted some color. Can't see it in the picture, but there's some nice effect in the paint. Granted, it does hide those beautiful welds. If it is any consolation, I fitted the Moots seatpost right after the picture.

    I like it, it's a great paint job. Can't beat Spectrum.

    Thanks for the nice words. I expected just the color, but they added a little sparkle that stands out in brighter sunight. I had scraped the frame in a wreck and considered having it re-done by Moots, but really liked the celeste Bianchi color schemes. I found out about Spectrum from the RBR forums.

    +1. True. What do you care what some of the others think anyway? It's your Moots and you're still part of the family, that's all that matters.

    I like it too. If I get a Ti bike, whether it's a Strong, Kish or Moots, I'm painting it.

    I saw a photo of a Moots with a 3/4 paint job (they only covered most of the top and downtube but kept seat cluster sort of like the celeste part on your frame). They used a metallic orange color and it looked pretty awesome.

    I also have to say that I might actually like the black MOOTS logo a little better. If you swap out the headset with a black one and put in some carbon spacers to match the fork that ride would look pretty sweet.


    PS: I would post my Moots but I am the worst photographer ever and it wouldn't do it justice.

    Too busy

    I agree with Dick Ree. There are too many things going on. You've got silver, black, celeste, red, blue, yellow. You need to simplify the bike IMO. Maybe a white (or celeste) saddle and tape along with Dick's recommendations will give it a more elegant look. Its too busy.
