Moots 2012 Psychlo X RSL cyclocross bike

The 2012 Moots Pyschlo X RSL cyclocross bike offers a cycloross race-ready versatile platform for on and off road, for foul or fair weather cycling, or dirty grubby stuff that is short of full-on mountain biking. Yet the Psychlo X still rides as well as many road bikes on the road!

In the winter, bigger tires handle dirt and mud, and on the road the margin of safety is greatly enhanced over skinny road-bike tires.

See my ride report and image gallery.

Building one

My intent is for cross training for the Everest Challenge: lots of hills.

The superlative Moots Pyschlo X RSL deserves a Shimano Di2 setup and good brakes, so I am building it that way, since cantilever brakes are not only no good for stopping, but dangerous for the 5-12% grades I intend to ascend and descent (fast) on it.

See the build page for details.

 

Moots says

Following closely in the footsteps of the Vamoots RSL and Mooto X RSL, this frame was designed to make it the leader in its class. Our overall objective was to build the lightest and stiffest, high-performance titanium cyclocross bike available to racers today. And to do it without compromising the unique Moots ride quality or lifetime durability.

We started by incorporating a 44mm oversized had tube to increase front-end stiffness and enhance handling responsiveness. This feature also allows you to run a 1 1/2” to 1 1/8” tapered fork if you wish.

Next, we spec’d our large-diameter, thin-walled, U.S.-made seamless, double-butted tube set to increase overall fame stiffness while reducing weight. We also incorporated our PF 30 bottom bracket to achieve greater stiffness for more immediate power transfer under accelerating pedal force.

For the rear section of the frame, we formed and tapered the chain stays and seat stays to increase clearance while providing an elegant look and supple ride for those times when the cross course surfaces turn ugly (which fortunately or unfortunately, they do quite often.)

Finally, we formed the top tube to provide comfortable shouldering for those stretches when the course is better raced on foot.
