Cockpit

Missing some titanium (delay on parts).

RockShox 2012 SID XX 29er suspension fork lockout lever

This lockout lever is better than nothing (Fox does not offer a 29er fork remote lockout). But it’s not easy to operate as configured here: the hand must be moved off the grip, the thumb must find the lever while the bike is bouncing around like crazy, and it’s a toggle offering no unambiguous settings by feel. And it makes no click to confirm anything.

Front hub and fork

Pretty metal.

RockShox SID 29 XX

The 2012 RockShox SID 29 XX suspension fork is almost as light as some forks for 26" bikes.

XTR 26 X 38 crankset

On a 29er, a 26 X 38 crankset is roughly equivalent to a 28 X 40 crankset on a bike with 26" wheels. Anyone climbing hills should consider ONLY a 26 X 38, and on the Moots MootoX RSL, the clearance from the chainstay is too tight with a 28 X 40 anyway.

Cloth-wrapped chainstay

Neil at Palo Alto Bicycles suggested wrapping the drive-side chainstay this way when I remarked up on chain slap noise— great idea! It adds less than an ounce to the bike weight, and the bike rides much more quietly on the rough stuff because the chain hits this cloth wrapping instead of titanium metal.

Seat and seat post

Super clean design.

I run the same road-bike seat on all my road and mountain bikes. It works great for an aggressive riding style on a mountain bike.
