Beautiful bike, really one of the top builds on this forum! You really need to have the chain on the big chainring when you snap your shots though.

I am a big ti fan. Always have been. Love riding ti, and love almost every bike in this gallery.

The components list for that Moots build looks great. But somehow, the geometry, the clash of colours, the bar ends, the high front end and spacers, the short seatpost extension, the sticker overload and maybe even the camera angle makes the whole less than the sum of the parts. Can't quite put my finger on why, but this one isn't doing it for me. Just looks a bit too 'busy'.

Sure it rides nicely and clearly a lot of thought has gone into the very precise spec, but for some reason it just looks a bit wrong altogether. Gold chain, non standard black chainrings, white cable housing, red granny cog, pink end caps, multi-colored fork decals, red Moots accents, rasta headset, blue seatpost head, gum wall tires. Just a bit too much going on for me. The Moots decals were limited to the anniversary bikes, but they would sing more with less noise around them.

Just my opinion, and each to their own, but I guess posting a bike on a forum for all to see potentially attracts some good and some bad comments, so sorry for sounding like a party pooper.

I know I sound boring, but ti looks classy with all black components and highlights and a 'less is more' approach to decals. As a taller rider of larger bikes myself, I concede that a geometry that fits is also not always the most aesthetically pleasing, and I would always go for fit before looks, but in this case, the end result does lack something in terms of being appealing to the eye.

Thanks for the comment, SOLARIDER. Even though it makes me laugh, you don't have to justify your opinions on my Moots!

Cranks, fork, wheels, group... okay, I'm not sure I can find a single thing on your bike where I could recommend an upgrade. Incredible.
