Over the past few years we have built our “Moots Ti Sticks” each Cyclocross season so you can cheer on your favorite racer. These “Ti Sticks” are made from our US made seamless titanium that is too short to be used in our frames or components.
If you follow the disipline of Cyclocross in the US, then you just came off an exciting week of racing or race watching as it might be. It really was an amazing week to be a racer or a follower of the beautiful sport of Veldrijden
Where did 2016 go? What did we do? We have assembled a couple of photos from each month of this passing year to see just what we did……we hope you enjoy.
The holidays approach, the weather could be bad, you’ve got vacation days to burn before the turn of the calendar and you just might need a break from all that inside time with family. What to do with those days between Christmas and New Years?
Towards the end of October Moots was fortunate to have STUDIO VELO (our top dealer in 2016) host a Gravel Camp in Steamboat. Scott Penzarella is one of three owners of this wonderful shop based out of Mill Valley, California……
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
We have compiled the top 10 things you learn when you get your first Moots. These are comments from real customers after they have had their Moots for a little while……… #1 You don’t know why you ever waited to buy a Moots!!!! #2 The claim of the great ride quality was waaaay under sold. #3 Your buddy that has X brand of titanium bike that he thought was the best is suddenly eyeing your Moots.
A brief stint on the pavement to connect the goods of our dirt/gravel adventures. FEATURED SHOP: STUDIO VELO, MILL VALLEY, CALIFORNIA The last week of October we played host & guide to our stand our dealer from Mill Valley, California, STUDIO VELO. This shop is nestled in the small town north of the bay and has quickly risen to the top due to their passion for Moots and offering their customers an experience that cannot be beat. Did I mention they also ride a crap ton?
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.
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.
