    Hello there!

    Thank you for the compliments! The hoods are actually this special type of HUDZ called Lusanne clear. You can put all kinds of decals or what have you underneath your hoods and it shows through. Untapped advertising space.

    I will edit my post to add some more pictures.

    The only bad thing is that white tape shows through and looks awful against the black sram body, so I chose to do the black tape.

    The wheels were built by a local mehcanic with a ton of experience. His name is Mark, and if you have been to cross races in New England, you will know him as the Neutral Mechanic person with a very large dog. He is meticulous and the wheels are VERY light and super stiff. 32 hole Chris King classic hubs are laced to some Velocity aerohead rims with some DT Revolution spokes. I think it weighs in around 1550 grams without skewers. Lifetime truing is included with the wheel build and he also offers a ton of other services like fitting, complete bike maintanace and tubular tire gluing.

    Due to the weather, I have really only gone on 5 rides on this bike. I think it is a tad stiffer than my DeSalvo road bike, and it seems to absorb just a bit more road noise as well. The headtube is a good centimeter lower than the DeSalvo, and the deep drop bars make it hard to stay in the drops for a long time.

    I love looking at these Moot's builds - some fantastic stuff! It's funny how you start to see some of the same parts over and over, like Campy components and red anodized headsets.

    Previously running some de-stickered Token wheels and prior to that American Classic's.
    The Fulcrums are a much stiffer wheel with far less flexy spokes.
    Have not gotten them out on any climbs or longer rides yet but on my short loops they have been great.

    Some beautiful bikes here, the simpler the better... If anyone should feel the need to let go of a 55/56cm TT Compact I would be interested...

    New pics.
    Replaced my previous traditional bend bars with some 3T Ergosum's and my stainless steel cages with some Elite Aussie flag cages.

    Your Moots is the only one I have ever seen with the Moots decal going the opposite way on the seattube. Did you get it redecaled?

    Yep, did it myself and obviously had a blonde moment while doing it.

    Hi there,

    my first post here – guess it's not too much of a bad idea to start with some of these stealthy gray bikes :-).

    2009 Vamoots
    2008 Rigormootis (Rohloff)

    plus a picture of the rest of the herd :-)

    Enjoy, Lorenz

    Looking over the pics in the registry, I noticed that the MOOTS logo on the seat tube is now running with the letters stacked on top of each other such as

    M
    O
    O
    T
    S

    as opposed to MOOTS running up or down the seat tube. I guess that's new.

    Looks great! The cable routing under the bars looks a bit uncomfortable. Hope you enjoy!

    Thanks!

    Should look a bit more complete when the King cages get back from Moots with their matching media blast finish
