1999 Mosh Team XL

Mosh Team XL - directly from the minds of Linn Kastan and Jason Richardson

Bought this bike in February 99 from Cycle World in Miami. Made some changes from the original stock setup (trade for Powerlite Bars and Mosh sealed pedals). Made an update last November by putting a Slam XLT Bar, ODI grips and a Thomson stem. (Mosh Stem & Powelite bars are on file).

Moshman: Thanks for the comment. Yes, it is a 1999. My mistake...corrected.  Do you know why they used CU92 instead of 6061 T6 (or any other mainstream AL)?.

Re: 1999 Mosh Team XL

Hey Juurdane
I deleted my previous post,, long story but I just wanted to reiterate that this is one of my favorite bikes on the site, it’s clean, the stickers are still intact, and the bike is still stock in all the right places. Beyond that it’s the first Team model Mosh ever made, and the only year where the TT didn’t extend through the seat tube. Anyway it’s a great bike.
I’m not sure why they used CU92 instead of a more mainstream AL, I’ve read that it has something to do with it’s strength vs. weight ratio though, and that the CU92 is stronger without sacrificing a lot of weight.
Anyway If I ever learn anything more about it then I’ll be sure to tell ya.

Re: 1999 Mosh Team XL

i just picked up a mosh frame and a box of parts . it looks identical to yours and is the same size tt , has the same crank set and a pair of the same forks were in the box . i was wondering if the forks on yours were original ?

The only non-original parts are the stem, bars, grips and seat.
