Personally, which is subjective observation, the Moots is the best bike I've ever own! I've had a collection of steel, aluminum, carbon fiber and several titanium road bikes over the years, all bought used, saves tons of money! I prefer rim brake(since dwelling in the land of flat landers, IL) over disk brakes, unless I lived in the mountainous regions of the USA, disk brakes are better going down the mountains, but difficult to align the caliper and rotor to prevent rubbing, slows you down! Good choice! I happen to have the same model and the fork is reverse to your fork.

Beautiful bike!

On the fork...I think sometime in the late 2000's Moots changed the fork. Also, my fork is an RSL fork...not sure if that makes a difference or not.

Mine rides great!

Now Rohloff has an electronic shifter they make ..
it has been designed to interface with Bosch Mid Drive electric motors..
in eBikes ...
motor pauses power, momentarily, for gear shift.
