RIDE TO IMBA SUMMIT

  The New ROUTT RSL & ROUTT were put to the test during the 3 day adventure. If you’ve been following Moots you’ll know that just over a year ago the company sold. Moots had been owned by the same individual for about 22 years or so. The owner at the time didn’t want to sell it to just anyone, or the highest bidder. He and his family cared deeply for cycling, the brand and the dedicated people that put hands to metal each and everyday. They cared so much that they wanted to leave us with just the right person at the helm. Finding the right person took about 5 years and like so many things that are just “right” that

Moots 3D printed Flat Mount dropout

I wanted to explain in some detail why and how we decided to use this new and different technology of a 3D printing the parts for the Flat Mount brake mount and dropout on our Disc RSL versions of our road, cross and gravel bikes. We understand this is a different look from Moots, but we will share the reasoning behind this choice. The end goal is to make the best possible bike.

The Moots Baxter: Answers the question of Road or Mountain What type of bike is it?

  WHAT TYPE OF BIKE IS IT? Rigid views of road and mountain bikes have been in place for a long time, but an evolution of sub-disciplines has led more purpose built bikes to market and broadened the view of what biking can be. A recent example is the explosion of “gravel” bikes like the Moots Routt 45, gaining broad appeal thanks to events like Dirty Kanza along with forward thinking bike shops like CyclePathPDX and North Central. The Baxter is a bike built for maximum versatility, for adventure that knows no bounds, and for the sole purpose of riding everywhere without limitations.

One of the riders to take the line was Michael Burleigh from the front range of Colorado.  He was also the winner of our frame give-away at the Steamboat Stage Race.  He put that new Psychlo X RSL to good work. The bike that really could rule them all.  Read his account of the day below:
