    My first cross bike, just got it yesterday!

    If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the A-Team.

    msantiago,
    Schweet ride. The Moots bikes are so sweet. Their attention to detail and customer service is first rate. How does it ride? I would love to add another Moots to the stable but that is not in the cards for a very long while.

    Cruiser on the 'cross bandwagon.



    What exactly I am going to use this for is not clear. Some commuting, maybe an open-category race (instead of the MTB) depending on the track.

    Well for the many bikes I have bought in the past nothing fit so well than this one. The ride is fast and straight. Still looking for the right pedals. Thanks!

    how much did your final build weigh?
    This is hideously late, but... 23.9 pounds.

    Pretty decent for a steel 60cm bike with mountain bike spec wheels and Ultegra.

    Two year later, I finally got around to taking a couple of photos of the bike on its own. This from a race yesterday (the Tour of Pelham - 30k on/off road).

    It's a "medium" (55cm ETT, 140mm HT, 73.5 degree ST, 5.5cm BB drop)

    There are about 3cm of spacers/cable hanger before the 110mm +8 (or maybe +10) degree stem.

    The fit is good ... if anything I would like to try a bike with a slightly lower bottom bracket, and I'm always on the hunt for bikes with tall head tubes. In this particular model bike I could probably ride a large as well (57 ETT) with a shorter stem ... but that would be a choice based on aesthetics (probably not the best idea) and I wouldn't want to mess up my balance of weight over the bike when out of the saddle.
