My Vamoots was crafted on 7/7/11 shortly after my son was born. I knew that since I was starting this new phase of my life my bike buying days were over….after all diapers and daycare are expensive! After convincing my wife that this would be my “last bike”, I sold all my bikes and placed my order with Alpha Bicycle Company. 6 years later my son is riding a bike, my 3 year old daughter is riding a bike, and I’ve ridden my Moots thousands of miles in the foothills of Colorado. Every Saturday I show up at the local cycling club group rides. In a sea of shiny carbon bikes, everyone always asks if my bike is new. I laugh and say, no it’s a Moots, it always looks like this! I could have posted one of the many hundreds of pictures I have of me and my Moots in action, pounding out the miles and enjoying the Colorado outdoors, but this picture is my favorite. One day I was cleaning up my Moots after a long ride and my son sat down and drew this for me. At the time, I didn’t even know he could spell words other than his name! He told me it represents the sun, blue skies, and the wind pushing me like a sail on my Moots. This bike has seen my children grow fast, my waist line shrink, and has taken me on rides that are so spectacular that even my kids can imagine and illustrate just by looking at my post ride smile. I’ve taken great care of my Vamoots and know it will take care of me until my kids are grown and hopefully riding Moots of their own along side me.
