And it is a Moment :thumbsup:
But i need some help to decide which seatpost i should use.

The Build is :
Frame : Small Moment in black
Fork : Pike 454 Dual Air
Stem : Extralite UL2
Handlebar : Syntace Vector Lowride Carbon
Brakes : Formula Puro Oro
Wheels : Industry Nine Enduro (black hubs,silver spokes)
Rear Deraileur : XO
Front Deraileur : XTR
Crankset : XTR 960
Cassette : XT 760
Chain : KMC X9 SL
Tires : Front Nobby Nic 2.25 - Rear Nevegal 2.10 Sticky compound
Saddle : WTB DEVO Carbon

But should i go for the MOOTS Laidback seatpost,or Ritchey WCS Carbon.
The Ritchey would match better (colourwise) But i reaally dig the MOOTS

What do you think?

Congrats on the new bike!!!!!!!! Post pics and a ride report when you can.

If this is a color issue... get the black one.

Seriously...... Get a Gravity Dropper. It's the only post that'll enhance your riding experience like no other upgrade. You owe it to yourself to slap one on your new baby.

edit: After re-reading your post... and looking at your seatpost choices... the issue for you may be weight. I'd still get the GD... more weight, but way more fun and confidence.

Havent thought about

the Gravity dropper!
I dont know if i need one:confused:
Here in Denmark the highest "peak" is about 150meters:madmax:
So we dont have big downhills,there is a lot of singletrack with small ups
and downs.

About the ride! its a GREAT ride :thumbsup:
I traded it for my Intense 5.5 and im so happy:D
I liked the 5.5 but never really loved it!
But with the Moment i fell in love right away.
I have to admit that the 5.5 was very quick,but it lacked something.
The Moment climbes better - decents better and the suspension rocks:cool:
Just my kind of bike:D

I will post pictures when i get the new handlebar/brakes/seatpost/saddle
Right now it has El Caminos/ Easton CNT riserbar/ and cheap Felt saddle and seatpost:nono:

A Gravity Dropper post is a good choice if you think you'll ever be lowering your seat during a ride. Otherwise, I'm a fan of Thomson posts.

The Moots is a fantastic piece, but not worth it for a long travel bike, in my opinion. I personally think of a Moots post as being most useful on a hardtail.

Congrats on your purchase. The Moment is a great bike.

That's exactly the situation where the GD helps the most. If you have long downhills it's no problem to stop and lower or raise the seat. But quick little downs followed by steep ups are where the GD excels.

I think i am sold

On the GD :D
Thanks for the reply from all of you:thumbsup:
I was planning on building a very light Moment,but
i think the extra weight from the GD will be worth it.
Is there anybody that has weighed the GD in 27,2mm x 350mm?

I believe that it's spec'd at 450g for the 350mm post... including all hardware and cable.

I like the seatpost so much that I'm about to order a second post for my other bike (my uber-light Top Fuel 110).
