  • Hi Ti Rides,
    Just an enquiry from a Ti noob.
    I have just purchased a moots vamoots – a few years old. However I have the opportunity to nab a compact sl in the out of production 6/4 tubing.
    I am 29 years old fairly fit and commute to work.
    Would there be any drawbacks in opting for the compact SL over the vamoots?

    I had a Compact SL although I recently switched to an RSL. The Compact SL is an amazing frame. All else being equal, I would choose it over the standard Moots Vamoots, given that I think it’s fun to ride something that you will likely see nowhere else. That being said, the quality of your Vamoots is just as high as a Compact SL, and you won’t likely feel any advantage of 6/4 over 3/2.5.
    My personal experiences with various Ti frames have led me to believe that 6/4 and 3/2.5 are the same in terms of the performance you feel on the bike as a rider. Theoretically speaking, 6/4 tubes should be stronger in a crash, but in a situation where 3/2.5 would fail most likely a 6/4 frame would have cracked somewhere at its welds—not to mention our relatively fragile human bodies!
