The Kasepuhan or Kasepuhan Banten Kidul are a traditional Sundanese community of approximately 5,300 people, who live in the southern part of Gunung Halimun National Park, in the Indonesian province of West Java. Gunung Halimun National Park is located within the borders of the Sukabumi Regency, Bogor and southern Banten province. The Kasepuhan is called “Kasepuhan Banten Kidul” (Kasepuhan of Southern Banten), their main village is Ciptagelar in the Cisolok subdistrict (kecamatan) in the western part of the Sukabumi Regency. Using Moots Routt 45, with Rockshox make journey comfortable.
I was looking for the ultimate gravel build. Having ridden a YBB 29er for the last 8 years there was only one choice. A YBB gravelmonster. This route YBB is amazing. I couldn’t imagine a sweeter ride. Thanks Moots for once again delivering the goods!
This July, I took an 8-day trip from my home near Seattle. I rode down to Portland with the Seattle-to-Portland ride. Then I rode over to the coast at Astoria, OR. From there I followed the Washington coast along the Pacific Ocean and various large bays to the Olympic Peninsula. Much if the ocean route is known as the “Hidden Coast”. My route took me along the Strait of Juan de Fuca. I took a side trip up to Hurricane Ridge in the Olympic Mountain Range. I stayed in motels along the way and carried a few clothes and some food in panniers. The total trip was about 875 miles. Weather ranged from cool and cloudy, to dumping rain, to gloriously sunny. I’ve had my Routt 45 for several years and use it mainly for winter commuting and adventuring.
Mr. Moots and I finished the wet, muddy ride with the 5th fastest time (all time) among 243 people, from mile 0 to mile 40. My Route 45 is so comfortable, fast, and gives me the freedom to ride where I want. Thanks, Moots for making a fantastic bike.
I had this Vamoots built through Vecchios in Boulder CO. Jim was very helpful and I use it to ride the RMNP roads here in Estes Park. CO. Love the ride as it absorbs the road vibrations and climbs and descends amazingly. Built with a Campy Chorus group and with Campy Shamal Mille wheels.
Finally purchased a new bike from Wrench Science in Berkely, Ca. Picked it up and promptly drove south to Hwy 1 and rode the Nacimiento-Ferguson Road. It was an epic first ride on this Moots build. Fantastic weather, beautiful scenery, and an uber bike. My prior ride was rather old and I honestly couldn’t believe how smoot, fast, and responsive this new ride would be. Love it!
