If small frame builders do one thing really well, it’s build stunning show pieces that grab loads of attention on the showroom floor and social media outlets. Concept bikes, one-offs and some to be never ridden (gasp/sigh).
The FARWELL—Ready and waiting for mud season to pass. Most that might read our blog likely don’t live in Steamboat. They live in other areas that don’t have a long drawn-out winter like we do. Town is just over

Mat Barlow has been in and around the bike industry since he was in diapers and is now partner in our Boulder, Colorado dealer, VECCHIO’S BICICLETTERIA. He was kind enough to give us a little insight into his Baxter after he’s put some serious time on it. The versatility of the Baxter allows him to switch between a faster rolling Compass tire on a Mavic Crossmax wheel set to a wide Derby rim with 50mm Clements mounted. What’s your route today? Switch wheel set and you are gone! words & photos by: MAT BARLOW—-BAXTER IN A NUT SHELL…..if that’s possible. MOOTS: Give us a little background of you and bikes…..
