Located about three hours northwest of Denver, Colorado is the small ski town Steamboat Springs. Best known for winter sports, the town is also home to Moots Cycles and an amazing network of gravel roads.
JOM of the Gravel Cyclist crew was invited to the Moots facility, for a factory tour led by company President, Drew Medlock. Moots opened for business in 1981, constructing steel bikes at first, but switched exclusively to titanium in 1991.
This factory tour takes you from start to finish during the construction process of a Moots Titanium Cycles frame, culminating in a look around the company’s on-site showroom (with greeting by Rocky).
If you would like your own tour of the Moots facility, they offer them every Monday, Wednesday and Friday starting at 10am.
Moots Titanium Cycles is located at 2545 Copper Ridge Drive, Steamboat Springs, Colorado 80487.
Thank you to Drew, Rocky and the staff at Moots for their time during the production of this video. Additional thanks for the loan of the beautiful Moots Routt RSL (pictured above) during my time in Steamboat Springs! Enjoy!
Thanks for watching!

Reading and watching your website, I see you usually ride a Lynskey. How did that compare to the Moots? Do you feel one is better than the other. I have ridden Lynskey in the past and switched to a Seven recently and enjoy it more. Curious your opinion of Lysnkey versus Moots.
Kris, to be honest, I don’t generally do side by side comparisons, especially that I only rode the Moots for a total of about 8 hours. I like the viewers to figure it out for themselves based on my review.
With that said, I will be reviewing the bike you saw me riding in the video sometime soon… maybe then I can offer some further insight. 🙂
