Dreamride build of Moots Mooto-X YBB frame. Moots Mooto-X Frames and Custom Bikes
16" & 17" Mooto-X YBB Frame sizes!


Moots Mooto-X RSL on the stand. The Mooto-X comes in three models, the Mooto-X, Mooto-X YBB and Mooto-X RSL, and the addition of a 650B YBB frame designation that is called the Rogue. We consider the Mooto-X YBB to be the very best frame of any kind we offer and now that it has a 12X142 rear, our favorite piece of engineering is even better. The RSL version builds a race bike for the privateer that will smoke the competition on most XC race courses, and the 650B may be the best choice for riders of a certain intermediate sizing.

Not only does the Mooto-X model line take advantage of 29 inch wheels to the point of near perfection, these frames are simply smart investments. Testing 29er frames, components and bikes over the past decade has given us an excellent understanding of the range of riding styles and bodies that can take advantage of specific wheel and suspension combinations and we can honestly say that Moots shocked us with the many improvements and simple beauty of these new frames over the past few years. From the increased clearance for tires and fork crowns to the wider rear axle to the state-of-the-art tube bending and welding, the Mooto-X is a winner in every sense of the word. We have our own component selections specific to each rider's needs for every frame choice within the three of the Mooto-X models. Scroll down for pricing and more information on the frames and our own chosen parts (these change over time though we do have our longtime favorites). For 2015 Moots is providing complete bikes to its dealers, so look for this option if you are bargain-minded.

Mooto-X YBB ~ Our favorite MTB frame!
FYI (for your information), YBB (why be beat?) rear suspension is perfect for a 29er set-up, offering just enough suspension for comfort and performance, while eliminating the maintenance headache of a rear shock. The Mooto-X YBB receives the finest example of artful bicycle tube bending we have ever witnessed. The gentle bend of the top tube arcs to give the YBB circuit room to operate, while the reverse echo of the downtube bend eliminates need for a custom headset race to clear the fork crown. The 18" frame pictured above is so very balanced cosmetically that it will certainly hang in a museum someday. As of 2015 the Moot-X YBB has a 12X142 rear axle and post mounts brakes! This is another good year to be a Moots dealer!

Moots Mooto-X YBB with SRAM XX1 and Industry Nine wheelset Special EditionDreamride MODMAX Moots Mooto-X RSL


The Mooto-X RSL is the 29er dream machine everyone has been looking for. Built for serious cross country MTB Racing, the Mooto-X RSL was developed with the same principles that guided the design of the Vamoots RSL. Designed from the ground up to be the finest performing 29er titanium cross country race bike available. Quick, responsive and decisive handling come from key features like the oversized head tube for zero-stack headsets, oversized Press Fit bottom bracket for more immediate power transfer in the drive line and oversized butted seat tube to provide increased stiffness and strength in tandem with a 30.9 seat post. The curved down tube provides increased fork clearance while shaped chain stays and re-designed rear triangle offer increased tire clearance while reducing weight. All features of the Mooto-X RSL seamlessly come together to create an exceptionally fast, nimble and rugged cross country race bike.

Dreamride Moots Mooto-X YBB MAX-Reducer Plus Act of Mercy
The bike pictured above and below was built up for a loyal longtime client who wanted to save as much money as possible while getting the bike to him as soon as possible, BUT HE WAS PATIENT--the most important virtue when working to save money on a very high end bicycle. He sent a box of used parts and specified a cost-effective wheelset. I went through his parts and used only what I could stand behind, then threw the rest in our "art" parts bin. I filled in the gaps with suitable new parts and things lying around the shop, including a fork I took off of my own bike. I went a bit further for him because he has been a good friend. I accepted a bicycle in trade for labor and parts I had in stock. This is how it works when there is trust. Clients in my size range generally encourage me to ride the bike for a day to set the wheels and stretch the cables. It's a smart thing to do and it allows me to take these pictures.

The Mooto-X YBB and MX-RSL are the best hardtail mountain bike frames in the business and they build up to our best selling mountain bikes we offer. We list some very high end builds here, but we will also build to suit a budget or special request. We use Magura and Shimano brakes only because of their use of non-toxic mineral oil rather than DOT fluid. SRAM XX1 Our latest ModMAXX parts grouping comes with choice of SRAM XX1 or XTR, but we mix and match a combination of other high end groups from SRAM and/or Shimano for performance, maintenance and budget for each individual client. Industry Nine We specialize in wheels built with Chris King, DT and Enve components and offer our won Dreamride wheels with Chris King hubs and our company carbon rims. We also offer Chris King, Industry Nine and Enve-built wheelsets. SRAM XX1 components and the use of a Dreamride AM carbon, Industry Nine or Enve wheelset brings weights down to 23 pounds on a YBB bike, below 22 pounds on an RSL. Moots Mooto-X RSL on the stand.
