Just completed Moots

Just completed the Moots today. It's a 1998, however I purchased on the C&V sales section, so it deserves to be here.

That's a beauty. The first pic definitely goes on my "moodboard" for my upcoming SS build, which I'll do as soon as the right frame surfaces..

Thanks Guys! It's about 23 pounds, which isn't bad for a large considering it has a Rock Shox Sid on the front.

^Sexy single speed! Ti accessories too! A very nice ride, Vonruden.
What gearing are your running? Curious how you got it done with vertical dropouts.

Beautiful Moots.

I am kinda disc brake illiterate. Curious if the disc mount is capable of modern disc's and if so, will you make the switch when the right wheels and brakes come along.

the ENO hub works like a charm, no issues. Love it. I plan on keeping it, with no plans to go disc.

Nice rides Aemmer, love the WTB.

Here's my 88 Univega Alpina Pro it is built up as a townie/roadster/whatever bike. I set it up with halfstep+granny gearing to try it out, but it's kind of pointless since the big rings are really close together (48/45). The fenders are also kinda silly since we're in the middle of a drought but they go with the build. nice to cruise around town but the upright position catches the wind so bad

Hi! I would like to show my pal since 1992. Bought new in California, moving between US and Tokyo for 2.5 times.
Lots of modifications, runs great, and I am totally attached to this bike.

This is inspirational!!!!

I've been waffling/stalled on my bike project of late and seeing this yours is rekindling the fire to push on and ahead.

I love the new, clean componentry. The rear hub and brakes in particular caught my attention (things on my ride which need some attention).

Well done and thanks for the boost!!!

Yes, it's in very nice condition. Just the normal garage kept scratches and marks. Can't wait to get my wife out on it in the dirt.
