Moots build some of the world's very best titanium frames, beautifully finished with a special shot blast technique that delivers a satin smooth texture. Robert went for laser etched logos with his name on the top tube, which really contrasts well with the smooth finish on his Moots Vamoots CR. However, there's so much more to this build than it's finish...
Robert travels a lot with work and needed a solution to the mounting bills from paying to fly his bike. S&S couplers are a standard upgrade option with the majority of Moots models and this build solves Robert's problem in style.
S&S couplers effectively allow you to break down the frame by unscrewing the steel couplers, one on the top tube and one on the downtube. They are a beautifully engineered solution to the problem of packing a bike down smaller than the standard bike box. Moots really rate them and it's a popular custom option on their frames. By removing the bars and the wheels you can then fit the bike in a smaller, more airline friendly suitcase and travel cheaper and easier. The price includes a custom case.
The couplers only add around 225g to a standard road build and they have zero effect on the ride quality. If you need to travel a lot with your bike it's a great solution, with huge potential savings. You can read more about Moots here and get some further details on S&S Machine here.
