Back to our normal programing…..Our Weekend update resumes and finds us encountering a Colorado spring…..warmer temperatures, rising rivers, dry dirt roads and trips west to find open single track. A cast of characters makes up the whole here at Moots….these are just some of them:
Late last week we got out for a little dirt road jam during lunch. Shot with a new GoPro Kama gimbal stick…makes for smooth shooting on rough surfaces. The Airport Loop is our go-to 20 mile lap.

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…..

We are hitting the road right after NAHBS for an awesome South East kick-off-to-spring demo tour. The Moots van will be loaded with current models such as…….
A couple of Fridays ago I went out for a lunch ride. We had some “warm” weather with highs in the upper 40’s. That’s warm for us mountain people. I returned to my desk still dressed in winter cycling clothes and opened my emails.
