Not sure why I'm starting a thread here, but just wanted to throw in my though of the day.
A Moots really is a bike for life!
Someone said that when I was shopping many years back and .... damn they were right! I havent been riding much lately, but I went out to the shed to put on a new saddle, lube up the chain and give it a quick check over before a ride on the weekend.
Looking at the bike brought back all the things I love about it. The quality, what a great piece of engineering it is, the beautiful Ti that doesnt scratch or mark and I thought, was a great looking bike, damn I want to get out and ride now!
As I went back inside, I thought to myself.....I could have brought any other brand, but few would have lasted this long and none would continue to inspire me to get out there and keep riding like the Moots does.
Sure, Bike trends change, with every season a new color scheme from the major manufacturers, but the Moots is not a fashion statement, It's classic. It will always look good, and ride great! I doubt I'll ever see one show up on "American Pickers".
If the bike was a theme park, the Moots is not a one-time ticket or even a season pass, its an un-limited lifetime ticket that will thrill every time you get on it.
No doubt other owners here will know what I'm talking about.
Cant wait for the weekend now!
