Moots VaMoots with just a hint of custom
posted June 28, 2012 by Chad
Our latest Moots build was this sleek Vamoots in raw titanium with enough polish and etching to let you know what it is. That is of course if you missed the telltale super precise Moots craftsmanship and Breezer dropouts…
3T Ergonova LTD bars wrapped in Fizik microtex.
3T Dorico LTD post works well with the Moots frame and is very durable while being super light. Topped off with a Fizik Tri2 saddle.
Polished Moots inside an etched panel.
Moots Vamoots. This is the Moots made for a bit longer distance with a premium on comfort. A tad longer chain stays, and head tube with a bit slacker geometry.
Wonder where this cyclist is from?
We used a mix of Campagnolo for this bike. Put the really good stuff where it makes a difference and put the more economical parts where there is higher wear and more frequent replacement. Starts off with the Campagnolo Chorus chain instead of the Record version.
Campagnolo Chorus Front Derailleur as well. At only 1g heavier than the Super Record version it makes sense, plus the front derailleur plate is aluminum and doesn’t peel like the clear coat has a tendency to do on the Record and Super Record models.
Well, if you are going to have a power meter, this is the way to do it. Campagnolo SRM.
Campagnolo Super Record Rear Derailleur. Lighter, way tricker looking, titanium bolts and ceramic bearings, just a few reasons why this is our favorite rear derailleur.
Chorus 12X27 Cassette. About $300 less than the Super Record cassette and a bit longer lasting is why we went this route. This way the cyclist can get 2 cassettes for the price of one and have a 12X29 for when the road really goes up and for a long ways…
Carbon hub shell and ceramic bearings on this Campagnolo Shamal TUBULAR wheelset. Not too many of these out on the local rides but one of our favorite aluminum wheels ever. Right now we have some 22mm Continental Sprinters mounted, but come fall we’ll break out the 25mm Continental Competitions.
King titanium cages and a bit more polish.
And again, more polish…
Enve 2.0 fork with a 45 degree rake and a custom finish. Chris king headset rounds it out.
3T ARX Team stem and the other half of the Chris King headset.
Campagnolo Super Record for the stoppers. Can’t resist the titanium bolts and they are not much more than the Record version…
Rounding out the build we selected the Campagnolo Record Ergo Levers.
The end result. This bike is intended for the long road rides and less than perfect road conditions that are common out in the middle of nowhere. Again, during the fall and winter months we’ll see some wider tubulars on these Campagnolo Shamal wheels.
Thanks for reading!
