moots is changing their chain stays so the inside and outside will be flat shaped. I was told it will help with chain lines and clearance regarding external bb. The YBB version will not use the new stays as they will be too stiff and not flex like the current round ones.

should be a nice little touch.

Yeah, that's exactly why I was asking. Jon at Moots said that they just started rolling those out last week, hence I was wondering if this frame was one of those.

Thanks for the coments.
Its not a custom frame, the frame geo is pretty much what I would get if I did go custom. Saddle position is a little odd, i agree. With the STA it puts me right between needing a set back post or a zero. With a zero I would have the saddle all the way back. I think im going to push it a bit further back and drop it a bit, thats more Euro anyway:rolleyes:

Thanks again, and enjoy. Only a few more months!

What gearing did you choose? How's your chainring clearance?

I went with a 36-46 with an 11-23 for most stuff around here. I hav a 11-26 as well, but the 36-23 is plenty low enough.

The 36 is kinda tight, its not rubbing, and I dont think it will, but its tight. A 38 would be really close.
The outer ring has plenty of room.

I had a chance to vist the Moots factory and spoke to Jon about the chainstay issues. When I was there nothing had been done at that point, so I dont know what exactly they have planed. That is an amazing factory.

So, how do the Grifos handle in the flowerbed? I'd delete that photo ASAP before your local competitors think you've gone soft. Then again, you could totally be throwing them off mentally...;) If that's the case, I'd add a basket and streamers, though I think the guys at Moots would have a heart attack at the sight of a PsychloX with a pink basket on the front.
