Just got my Mog. Don't know where the 900-950 gram frame weight comes from. My frame out of the box weighed over 1100 grams ;)

No hardware?

From their website -

What is the weight of the MOG?
Frame Weight: 950g (56cm, Painted, No Hardware)

hmm I have a Slate Blue in 56 coming soon so I will weigh mine and report it here. I would give them a call. They have terrific customer service and the new owner(s) are real bike people, so they should have an easy chat with you and maybe swap that out.

Deciding between Transmittions xx-SL and Red Mullet / Explr build right now. Don't know if any of you guys went through the pros and cons but I would welcome thoughts.
Lots of bikes: currently riding Enve Melee, Krypton Pro, S Works Crux, S Works Epic Evo, SL7.
In build: SW SL8

Chipping in here as well. Any experience to use the Mog as both a gravel bike and road bike?

I'll be keeping my Canyon Aeroad for the rally racey stuff, but I'm looking for a bike that I can bring on cycling trips where I'll do both gravel and road, typically places like Girona, Mallorca, French / Italian Alpes / Dolomites etc, where it will be 60% road, 40% gravel. But I also need something that can race stuff like the Traka 200.

Is this my unicorn? :D

I just rode my Mog in an event and I used 29x2.1 Thunder Burt tires. They have adequete clearance in the bike, but they wouldn't be my choice for a muddy course.
There is good and bad to using the wider tires. The good is that they can run at lower pressure- So less chance of punctures, more comfort and feels stable on open descsnts.
The bad- Thye feel cumbersome cornering and tip over to toe ovelap (on a 54cm with 172.5 carnks and size 45 feet). I do not have this issue with 700x45.
So I am going back to 700x45 or 700x47 for most of my riding.

The day after the event I did a 90% gravel, ~80k ride with all surfaces, chunky to smooth. I liked the 29x2.1 for this. No switchbacks so I never thought of overlap.

Mine is built with a force d2/xxsl mullet setup, I never considered xplr since I’ve heard rumors of the clutch not being strong compared to eagle/t-type. I’m not too particular with cadence since I’m not holding 23mph speeds offroad, you can also until red e1 xplr shows up use udh direct mount only with t-type which makes setup a lot easier! I’m usually on a 46 or 44 ring and both ise the same size chain with t-type

You probably want a Fray, but you gonna run into tire clearance problems with a 2x setup.

I’ve ridden the MOG with 4.5s and gp5k as tr 35mm a lot during the winter on bike paths and the MOG is definitely a much better gravel bike than a road bike, feels a bit slow getting up to speed and handling!

If you are happy with 40mm tires you might get away with the FRAY on a 2x setup but clearance will be a bit limited I believe!

Thanks for thinking along with me! :). Ideally I'd go for a 2x set-up indeed as it's more enyoable on the road. The Fray is listed as max 38mm with 2x, that will be a bit on the small side for things like the Traka. My other option is an Ostro Gravel, but I suspect the Mog/Fray will be more fun on gravel.

Quick question for you - were those the cranks that came with the Transmission groupset? If so, were you able to fit the 42T chainring without issues wrt clearance or otherwise? thanks!

The questions wasn't for me but I'm running a 46T ring on a road wide crankset which is narrow q factor than xxsl crank even the narrow version, running any t-type or road wide you should have no problems running a 42t ring

Yes, they are standard MTB DUB width, which is about the same or 1-2mm wider than a set of road DUB WIDE cranks. So tons of room to play around with chainline and tire clearance. I currently have a set of 45c TUFO Gravel Thundero tires on it and there is still tons of clearance with the 42T ring. Im confident i could fit a 50T if i wanted to!
