Guess it might be in preparation for the wet time of year, but we’ve been rolling out some sick Moots mountain bikes over the past few weeks. Latest on the list is this new full suspension Moots YBB with an outrageous build. The $2975 YBB frame has just over an inch of travel from a pivotless design (thanks to the inherent springiness of titanium) that relies on a custom Moots rear shock. Although the proud owner of this rig went with a bone stock YBB, he could’ve gone with any number of custom options like ‘slider’ singlespeed dropouts, an S&S coupler and of course custom geometry.
To top off the made-in-Colorado chassis, Lunner in the service department went with a full SRAM XX build including a 100mm travel SID World Cup fork with a carbon crown/steerer, Xloc remote lockout and race tuned XX Motion Control damping. For fireroad flying and supple singletrack there’s nothing more Gucci to hang on the front end of your bike.
We rounded the YBB out with a full 2x10 XX group including the insane XX 11-36 cassette and swoopy XX trigger shifters. This Moots rolls on a pair of Edge Carbon Clincher wheels with 32mm deep, 340-gram composite rims. Yeah. Short of rocking the 340-gram Edge tubulars, they’re about as light as it gets (of course there are the 260g Edge tubulars). Fortunately, we had enough budget that we didn’t have to skimp on the rest of the bike: Chris King headset and hubset, Moots titanium stem and post, Selle Italia SLR saddle, Shimano XTR pedals and, we just couldn't let this bike out the door with any other bottle cage than a pair of Ron Andrews King Cages.
Total retail on this baby? Let’s just say it was more than one dollar and less than a million. Call the shop 415.389.5461, or send us an email and we can start on your Moots dream rig today!
