Moots MootoX RSL Titanium Hardtail 29er Image Gallery

Hardtail elegance in a racing oriented top-grade titanium frame.

Ride notes are coming. Suffice it to say that this is one quick 29er... call it a 27.5er. Scary fast downhill too, and it feels.... Mootsy. A bad bottom bracket bearing has delayed testing for two days, but my experience coming soon.

In brief: maximum grins with the Moots YBB 26, and max speed, max acceleration and momentum, and rolling over stuff with the Moots MootoX RSL— the nature of the 26" vs 29" wheels. Amazing how tubeless at 30 psi can make up for no rear suspension.

See the bare bike frame image gallery, and the two additional pages of images in my 7-page (and growing) review of the Moots MootoX RSL.

I obtained the Moots MootoX RSL frame at Palo Alto Bicycles. I depend on the expertise of Neil in the service department there— he’s the guy to specify and build your custom bike like this Moots MootoX RSL, because he knows all the tricky details of a high-end build, with long experience with a huge variety of bikes.

Build kit

I bought my build kit at, in Escondido, CA. BikeBling has a wide variety of cycling gear— give them a try. also supplied the Easton EC90 Carbon 29er wheelset, which amazingly is only 10% heavier than the 26" version.
