Most bike manufacturers cheat on the frame weights by not including the seat post collar, derailleur hanger, water bottle bolts, or even paint. The weight below for the Moots Vamoots RSL frame is WITH:

  • 56cm Moots Vamoots RSL frame with standard size head tube, custom DI cable routing braze-on holes (see one such hole just above bottom bracket area).
  • Seat post collar.
  • Derailleur hanger (built-in, non-replaceable).
  • Steel water bottle bolts (4).
  • Steel Di2 battery bolts (2).
  • All Moots stickers.

I’ll be replacing the steel water bottle and Di2 bolts with aluminum ones, to shave off some grams. Other non-critical parts will also get similar attention, as the intent is for this to be my climbing bike for the 2012 Everest Challenge.

The Moots-supplied fork looks to be excellent for handling due to its robust construction and advanced shape. Weight below is with UNCUT steerer.
