    Adding to the Registry

    Bought from a gentleman down under, this is his pix. Two rides so far, probably will only change out the seat.

    for the paint job, I like it a lot...A LOT!

    Well, here is my contribution to the thread. Please disregard the uncut steerer tube, messy apartment, and poor lighting.

    ...with a moots stem and a titanium fork (e.g. Kocmo) it'll be perfect.

    Stem679, do you have another picture where i could see better how the 'grey' of the prorace2 match with the 'grey' of the frame?

    Thanks... Jörg

    @D-Town & chiup01: is that a pewter-colored king? one question: does the color (depending on the light) slightly go into a sort of violet? i intended to install a king pewter into my 2007 trek madone ssl 6.9 but the violetish glimmer didn't match the beautiful greyish paint color... i heard that, depending on the production date, some anodized aluminum products can slightly differ in color (haven't heard that about king, but hope, for example). that's why i'm asking.

    It is a pewter King - the color does appear to vary a bit depending on the light. Personally, it doesn't really look completely pewter or violet, but I'm not the best judge of color traditionally. It's hard to get a good sense of the color without seeing it in person, but I personally think it's a nice subtle color on the Moots ti finish.

    I'd say if you're concerned about the color or would be bothered by a violet tone (even if it's slight or only in certain light), then see if there's another King that would be a safe choice for your frame. Because if that's something that would bother you, once you get it in your head it will probably jump out as violet to you every time you look at it.

    I think this may have been discussed elsewhere on the board too.

    PS - chiup01, nice ride.

    Wink Brushed VaMoots SL

    I just built this custom Vamoots SL. Moots sent it to me without finish and Joe Bell brushed it. Fork was also stripped and clearcoated.

    thx for your answer! actually, i had bought the pewter king, i already had it on my bike, but then i changed it again cause the violet tone WAS jumping out all the time to me. i was just asking because i've heard that other manufacturers (hope) have a greyish colored headset too which varies in color from production date to production date (meaning that their greyish headsets always look different). if you had a purely GREY king, without any violet tone, i would have given it another try and would have bought another one in pewter...

    Here's mine...

    Its a custom Compact SL that is approaching it's one year birthday in May. I went custom because I needed a shorter headtube than the stock Moots frame. The geometry is: 55.8cm TT, 46cm ST, 11cm HT, 73 deg SA, 73 deg HTA, 40.5cm CS, 7.5cm BB drop. My only regret is that Moots misread the geo spreadsheet and made the seattube 46cm center-to-top, rather than center-to-center as was specced - hence the frame is ~3cm more compact than it should be. But the thing was so beautiful that I couldn't bear to send it back since the fit (position of the contact points) and the ride of the frame weren't affected (and I would have had to wait another 8 unbearable weeks!).

    An Old Friend...

Wheels are DT 240s, DT RR1.1 hoops laced rear 32h/3x, front 28h/2x w/ CX Ray spokes.

    The Old Friend part: Well over 24k miles of pavement have passed beneath us since the first ride.



    Perhaps the Moots constituency will indulge one of the Moots extended family here too.

    Eriksen Road, Ouzo Pro, Chris King, ’07 Record 10v w/ ’06 BB and carbon cranks (I respectfully decline to participate in the Ultra Torque consumer beta testing program), Eriksen seatpost, Falcon, Salsa, FSA K-Force bar. Wheels are again My Builds: White H1, Velocity Aerohead (OC rear), Rear 32h 3x DS/2x NDS, Front 28h 2x, Sapim CX Rays….

    I finally got around to taking some semi-decent photos of my bike, or at least some that weren't embarrasingly bad anyway. Steerer tube and a new saddle/seatpost have been installed since the last photos.

    Oh, and please excuse the mess in my apartment.

    What's not to like, you don't even know they are there.

    I'd do them on any frame.
    You'd be better off with a netbook, they do everything better.
