Si stopped off at mine on his way back from the bike's inaugral Northumbrian trip and can I just say, this bike is SO much better looking than the pics suggest
, and it looks fab in the pics
The wheels are a personal taste for sure
, I for one like them
, if i was keeping my Moots I'd be taking them off Si's hands that's for sure. The blue of the spokes isn't too bright, but tie in beautifully with the blue Hope seat QR and blue Yeti grips.
I'd say this is THE only full susser I've seen in a lllooonnnggg time that would make me think twice about giving up my hardtails.
You've got a nice bike there Si, a REALLY nice bike, but as I said earlier, I wouldn't build it up with feather-weight parts, you know what you're like when it comes to lightweight components and trees (thinking Thrunton and Glentress here
). I'd go for more "durable" bits, Chris King for sure, ordinary Thomson and XTR.
Now, if only you were looking for red and silver components, I know someone that will have a full set of King bits, in red, and silver Thomson finishing bits in silver. Oh, and silver rims to match the silver
Right, stop reading this and get my frankensteed sorted!
