Hello
some photos of my titanium road bikes:
- the first one: a Moots Compact SL, 2003 model, 5.92kg ready to ride with Garmin
Image

- the second one: a Merlin CR 6/4, 2005 model, 6.55kg ready to ride with Garmin
Image

I love the two. Merlin is for the bad weather days ;). But I've better pleasure to ride the Moots... There is Something special in this frame :thumbup:

In a few weeks, Merlin frame will be to sale. I found fews days ago a Moots Vamoots SL frame. With serial number, Moots told me that it was the first SL frame they have built, in 2002 december. The frame is in excellent condition; I would do a new finishing and put new decals before build it.

The Moots looks awesome. A complete build list and-a ride impression is called for. :thumbup:

Here is description/weight of all the parts of my Moots Compact SL

About ride impression, a lot of pleasure on this bike. Everything seems to be easier, comfortable, good on every type of ride
I hope it will be the same with the Vamoots SL ;)

That Moots looks awesome - great build.

Is the geo of the Vamoots much different than that of the Compact?

About geo, they are exactly the same. The only difference is that the Vamoots is less sloping because seat tube don't have the same lenght
Compact seat tube C->T = 53.5cm / for Vamoots it is 57.5cm
