Moots
NAHBS Booth: #617

Road. Mountain. Cross. Whether a stock size or custom design, all our titanium frames are hand built, one at a time to precision specs, to deliver a lifetime of outstanding riding regardless of your individual riding style. Looking for the latest race-ready road frame? A single-track swallowing cross country bike? No one offers the variety of high-end titanium frames we do.

Based in Steamboat Springs, Colorado Moots was founded in 1981 and has been building handmade bicycles for over 30 years.  Our deep history in frame building comes through in each and every model we build.  One ride and you will feel just what Handbuilt in the Rockies is all about.

Award Winner:
Best Theme Bike–Moots/Imba Trail Maintenance Bike (Award for: People's Choice):
With all of the great work mountain bike advocacy groups are doing to build more trails that all of us can ride and enjoy, we asked ourselves what unique contribution we could make to help backcountry trail building and maintenance crews access and do their work in a more effective way? Our answer was to build a self-contained, all-in-one trail maintenance bike.
We partnered with IMBA and Routt County Riders (RCR), our local Steamboat Springs bike club and advocacy group and, recent new IMBA Chapter, to collectively design a fully rideable, all-inclusive trail maintenance bike that carries all of the critical trail tools and allow crews to quickly and easily access backcountry trails without having to hike in or take a motorized vehicle.
Our bigger vision is that this bike, and concept just might help inspire other small bike builders and large bike manufacturers, alike to move this concept forward. And, who knows, maybe the end result will be a low-cost, fully integrated production built trail maintenance bike that becomes a standard piece of equipment for all the mountain bike advocacy groups and trail crews around the world?

Titanium is our material of choice and that is what is used throughout the bike. Frame, racks and fork.
Award Entries:
Best Mountain Bike (Entry for: Best mountain bike):
Our most advanced mountain bike to date, the MX Divide is a light, appropriately stiff and well-balanced 29” cross-country race and recreation bike that incorporates the best features of today’s proven suspension technology into our own Fusion Link platform. We developed the Fusion Link system in collaboration with the Sotto Group, leaders in full suspension design. It’s an extremely efficient single-pivot-linkage design that maximizes plushness across the full range of travel while minimizing pedal bob to let the rider become one with the bike over a variety of trail conditions. To complement the suspension system, we integrated many of our most advanced RSL features, like a 44mm head tube, PF 30 bottom bracket, 30.9 seatpost and Ti seat stays, to provide increased stiffness and responsiveness where riders need it most. To complete the package, we designed the bike with a 100mm fork to deliver the same amount of obstacle-eating travel up front as exists in the rear.

Special notes: Electronic controled front & rear shock with the first ever Calfee-dropper post internal battery. All electronic routing is done internally as well.
