Mmmmmm.....T i t a n i u m!

This here, is John. This here, is John's brand new MOOTS VAMOOTS CR. John picked this beauty up on 5/13 and I gotta say, this turned out really sweet. John first came to the Studio to take part in a Demo that The Studio and MOOTS put together. MOOTS came out from Steamboat, Colorado and brought about a dozen bikes for the general cycling public to ride. The demo was a success in that every bike MOOTS brought was checked out for the demo. This was great except, yours truly didn't get to go on the Demo ride because there were no more MOOTS left for me to ride! I got over it, and this demo was for folks to see just how great these bikes look and most importantly...RIDE! Long story short, John showed up to ride a MOOTS VAMOOTS CR and well...the rest is history. Obviously, John was impressed and eventually ordered one and here is the end result! Thanks JOHN!!! Here's how we equipped it. Enjoy.

SO! WHAT ELSE DO YOU RIDE, BRUCE?!

A few posts back I shared with you all, the bike I ride for all things mountain. Well...here is the latest installment of what I ride for a road bike! This beauty here is a MOOTS VAMOOTS RSL. This is MOOTS's flagship road bike and is sold here at the STUDIO proudly along with all of MOOTS's other badass models. I am a fan of most bike frame materials as they all do have their strengths, but if you want the material that gives you everything you have ever dreamed about in a ride and then some, Titanium is the only answer. Plus it will outlast any other frame material tenfold! MOOTS has been around for 30 years and make the finest Titanium bicycles out there. MOOTS also does not "dabble" in other frame materials, they only make Titanium bikes and have the most beautiful welds in the industry...period. If you are looking for your dream bike and more importantly, a frame that will LAST, MOOTS and their titanium frames are a no brainer. Here are some shots of my bike along with a parts list! Enjoy.
