    Here's my Vamoots (frame bought used)

    Here's my new-to-me (bought off another forum's classifieds section) Vamoots, which I built up this last September -

    Off of the Serotta forum - the frame has had two previous owners on that forum - I'm now the third! And less than 600 miles on it when I bought it! I'll have it forever, I can assure you of that!.

    Moots Compact

    Just built it up and starting to tack the miles on. It's a real joy to ride. Solid, light enough, handles, and climbs great.

    Finally got around to taking some pics of my new ride (spring). Not what I had in mind for shoes and dress. After I ordered the frame I found out I was going to loose my job (more time to ride). So I had to rob parts off another bike. I went out to Steamboat to to take the tour of the factory, highly recommend it. BTW anybody looking to hire a pilot?

    1500 mi and 9 months later

    She's got 1500 miles on her so far. Still as good as new. A bit softer than the carbon fiber pinarello and not as stiff in the bottom bracket, but more compliant and comfortable at the end of the long rides.



    I couldn't get the SMP seat to fit my behind, so I went back to my old standby.

    nice bike, but i still have found some bits for improvement: the deda zero 100 stem doesn't really match the titanium frame (colorwise). i'd probably swith to the black one which would be a perfect match for the wheel decals. and then, i'd also change the fork. get rid of the easton fork and get a reynolds ouzo pro or the UL fork. another perfect match for the wheels. otherwise a real beauty!

    Thanks for the interest, I don;t find the Zero100 to be too far off, though you're right it is not a perfect match, the blue in it picks up the blue highlights in the Reynolds decals. The Black Zero100 is nice, but common and I think the Dark Metal works well enough and is not seen around too much. I am sure the black would work very well too though.

    Fork-wise, the Easton is ok, I would like something thicker and a bit stiffer, but until it breaks (if ever...) I don;t think I'll spend more to change it, plus the Reynolds are considerably heavier, though probably stiffer too. I see the point of matching the wheels, that would bve cool. I was thinking maybe an Alpha Q would be good, but i will wait and see what forks come out down the road, if/when i need another. i am using the little money left to build up another, carbon, bike...

    I've posted this bike a couple of times, but I have upgraditus so it's build has always been in a state of flux. That being said, it's been in the same state for about a year so I thought it'd be safe to post an update.

    Selling the VaMoots...

    Selling the VaMoots... only to add a PsychloX to the stable. I switched all the parts over except for brakes (Cantis).

    Beautiful bike, Darth.

    Keep a close eye on your rear rim - the Bontrager RL & RXL have had a problem with cracking between the eyelets. I have RL's on my Madone, and have had 2 crack and 1 defective hub in only 9300 miles. YMMV.

    I already cracked a Race Lite. That's why I got the RXL. LBS said the RXL hubs were much better. Bontrager really impressed me by how they honored their warranty on the broken RL which makes me feel good.

    The RXL's have been good, I even hit a groundhog the other day by accident and they didn't even go out of true.

    Yashashana, Love the bike!! I was looking for one in this thread with white hoods. I would go a bit further and get my saddle and fork in white also, leaving everything else the way you have it. But what I really want to know is about your wheels, tell us about them. Cheers!
