[Moots Gristle]
We just built this Moots Gristle Zirkel for our best customer. For those of you that are not familiar with the Gristle, this frame sports 4" of rear travel with a 29" front wheel and a 26" rear wheel. Performance and bling were not spared for this build. Besides the frame, our customer requested a Moots stem and seat post to compliment the frame. Fork is the new 2010 Fox F29 with 100mm of travel. Headset is the heralded Chris King Sotto Voce NoThreadSet in mango with the King tall 5mm baseplate to make sure the Fox fork clears the down tube of the frame. Handle bar is the EDGE Composites riser handlebar. Wheels are EDGE Composites XC rims drilled 28 hole laced two cross to Chris King ISO disc hubs in mango with DT Swiss Competition double butted spokes. Drive train is Shimano XTR except for SRAM X.O trigger shifters and rear derailleur in the new tango color. Complete bike weighs 26.125 pounds as pictured with Crank Brothers Candy 2Ti pedals. Enjoy the pictures!
