NAHBS FARWELL BUILD BY ORANGE PEEL BICYCLES

Revisiting the 2017 North American Handmade Bicycle Show (NAHBS) and this FAREWELL that we featured in our display.
We asked Orange Peel Bicycle Service to build up a bike for the show and they picked the FARWELL. They went with a build that features HOPE components in (of course) orange anodized.  This very build is now on display at Orange Peel and is looking for an owner.

Here’s a bit about the bike and some nice history of this standout Moots Dealer.

THE BIKE~

The Moots FAREWELL has 27.5’’ + sized 2.8’’ tires for ultimate mountain bike versatility. Providing great uphill trail performance with outstanding handling and control down steep single track, flow trails and all technical descents. Full versatility comes in the way of being able to switch to 29’’ tires and wheels when the ride dictates.

THE DEALER~

ORANGE PEEL BICYCLE SERVICE is the original birthplace of Moots. Housed in the old cone building that once was used to burn wood chips outside of Steamboat, Orange Peel Bicycle Service is the utmost authority on Moots builds for customers near and far. Affectionately know as the “OP” you will not find a more unique bike shop anywhere. Brock Webster (owner) and his staff have outfitted more Moots than any other place on the planet. Period. It is a must visit when you come to Steamboat.

THE FINISH~

Orange Peel went with the polished Moots logos and satin bead blast finish
