We love getting under the skin of a brand and there's no better way than doing that than a factory visit. CyclingTips has visited one of our favourite brands, Moots, and undertaken a very detailed and in-depth tour of the Ti specialists facility in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, where every Moots frame is made by hand.
The article - read it here - is really worth a good some of your time today. Here's a flavour: "Going strictly by the numbers, nothing Moots produces can compete performance-wise with modern carbon fiber. But numbers aren't everything, and the timeless design, unique feel, small-batch production, custom finish and geometry options, and the promise of a lifetime of dependable durability are more than enough to lure a thousand happy owners each year."
We've built some beautiful Moots bikes over the years. The company's Routt gravel bike is proving very popular at the moment, as is the trend for going off-road and adventuring, and this rather fine build is an example of the sort of attention to detail you can expect from Moots and our team here at Bespoke Cycling. Whatever you want, we and Moots can accommodate your every requirement.
If you'd like to chat to us about building a Moots please do get in touch.
