    Can’t see pic! ☹

    If I actually last another 12 years in my job I’m definitely treating myself to a Moots, my local shop (Synergy Auchterarder) will be stocking them soon 😎

    Looks good. At least you’ve tried to add a bit of colour 😀 A pike with a rigid seatpost is a novel combo too.

    Very nice indeed! I really like the gripshift element. Had it for a while a few years ago, before my commuter became a singlespeed. I was really impressed with the feel.

    Looking forward to the update with it fully built!

    I’ll be there in 7 months, I probably should have started planning something already.
    A Prova Mostro Ti would be my pick. I wonder how long the wait is?

    For my 50th I’m expecting a new custom Ti Existential Crisis…if I can afford it!

    Good on you. I had my 40th last year and did nothing… Maybe I should treat myself.

    well, shes finished. cranks, BB and nice Pauls bits eventually arrived from the states (bigup for AVT bike, no import duty paid on the parcel) took her on a maiden voyage today and bagged a CR and some silverwear to boot. few changes, swapped out the Pikes for some factory 34’s (used) as stupidly i didnt realise that Pikes dont have a lockout… the moots post was for bikpacking trips, still waiting for some crank bros highline 7 droppers to materialise. once the hoards (and midges) leave the highlands, ill head west for a bikepacking trip in sept, the geom is spot on, not overly slack which is nice as im a 20yr XC racer at heart…



    hope these pics come out
