Moots Revises MX Divide 29er, Enters Production

Moots MX Divide 29er full suspension mountain bike goes into production

Introduced at Eurobike last year, Moots’ new MX Divide 29er is finally in production with a few tweaks from what we’ve seen even as recently as Interbike.

The main change is the bottom pivot linkage. The pivot location remains the same, but it’s now mounted via the seat tube rather than the downtube. The rear dropout is also changed to 142×12 stock with the option to get it QR. Retail price starts at $4,995 for the frame with Fox Kashima coated CTD RP23 shock. Pics after the break…

I love Moots, but man is that thing ugly!! beyond hideous. Ti fullies just don’t do it for me. Hard tails fo-sho, oh yeah and it’s $5k……

5G for what? Flexy outdated full suspension?

They should stick to hard and soft tails. Those are awesome.

Or use some other people rear triangles to save money.

Yeah, I can generally admire the beauty of functionality, but they clearly tried to introduce some curvy lines for the sake of style and it just doesn’t work. Plus, if you’re going for FS, why bother with Ti?

“I love Moots, but man is that thing ugly!! beyond hideous.” indeed, saw it in person at Seaotter. Up close, great craftsmanship but there’s no escaping the fugly.

+1 on the fugly.
MOOTS should have kept all the tubes straight on this one…

I’m pretty sure the curves have a reason….like fork crown clearance and such….but everyone is entitled to an opinion, you know what they say…everyone has one just like a….nevermind.
