Those yellow and red bits of tape were put on there just to mark where to fit the gear shifters when first getting it out of the box.

Moots stem is on route from the USA.

ordered one awhile back for the Moots, but after a month it still wasnt in stock at the Moots dealership i went through so i had to cancel.

this is a second hand one i managed to get for £162, so will be more like £200 time it gets on my bike!

Love the bike , love the build but :

I would have thought that with the Hbars you would have your hands lower , you cant change gears or brake the way it is set up now ?

and flat pedals ?!?!?!

yeah i change gear fine, and i have my hands covering the brakes mainly, a little higher up than what you'd imagine, im rarely holding the grips in a normal position, thats the beauty of the mutli position H bARS.

as for the flats, they saved my life years back in a car accident, (car T boned me at a junction) always used them.....feel so much safer with them, and means i can jump on a bike regardless off what i have on my feet.

this came today from canada.......after i paid the £33 customs charges first.......grrrrrr.

Moots Titanium open trial stem, 110mm/31.8.

quite light at 158 grams, matches the Moots post really well too.

also a picture of the one piece carbon steerer tube the jones has, the top cap screws onto a internal bolt too, no star cap here, as you can see.
