Rear dropout

Moots titanium tubing is full gauge right to the replaceable rear dropout, keeping the frame integrity and strength high right to the end.

Frame triangle

The frame triangle is ultra clean and nicely open, as befits a hard-tail, yet with the YBB mechanism tucked behind the seat post.

YBB soft-tail mechanism and down tube

The YBB soft-tail mechanism is seen at far left (the mark on the slider is grease).

I used a Thomson seat collar and King titanium cages also.

Easton XC 90 carbon fiber wheels

The Easton gray rim finish is a beautiful match for the Moots titanium finish, and the red accents add just enough color for interest.

Cockpit view

The shiny plastic-looking logo-ized Bontrager carbon fiber stem spoils the elegance, but it’s going to be replaced by Moots titanium stem once the right length and rise are determined.

The lockout for the front shock is mounted at far right.
