Towards the end of Fly Gulch is a cow pond that is home to the “other” Northwest Colorado gator. Mr. Moots loves to visit this spot….you know….”family time”. We’ve just past under 8 weeks to go until we host our 4th Annual Moots-Colorado Ranch Rally! The event is just about sold out, if you hurry you may still be able to get in.
Cobbles, wind, bergs, cheeseburgers and Moots titanium. What do all of these have in common? BELGIUM. Our International Sales Director Matt Alford……..
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:
After a long day in the saddle Nick is greated by his family. Nick Stillwell is a member of our GrassMoots Team and writes in this week about his 4th Vision Quest bike event that covered 56.5 miles and climbed 11,000 feet! He writes……. Participated in my 4th Vision Quest this weekend here in So Cal and boy I’m glad that’s out of the way…that is one tough event!
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. Some of this is on the Ranch Rally route that is coming our way in June of this year. Fun to ride with work mates and even get in a friendly sprint with a local rancher.
While at The Cycling House + Moots Owners Camp in February, one of the guest (he’s also a Moots dealer) brought his freshly completed Mountaineer YBB to ride during his “down time” at camp.
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…..
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.
From show floor to under the rider in 24 hours— As we look back a the North American Handmade Bicycle Show…….
