Interbike 2015: Moots Routt 45

Moots Bicycles, proudly handbuilt in the Rockies, have been in the business since 1981. Each of their frames is manufactured from US-made titanium tubing, with everything done by hand – from tube mitering and welding to finishing and polishing.

The Routt 45 is Moots entry into the gravel, dirt-road and double track exploration market, with tire (tyre) clearance of 45mm.
