A(Brent): The fact that a very passionate group of cyclists are creating a dream bike for other cyclists around the world to enjoy. Each and every model is designed and built under one roof using the best possible (US sourced) materials and internal processes. Moots has a very long history (35 years) of handcrafted know-how and refinements that come together to really create a work of art that provides a ride quality second to none.

Add in the durability and ride quality of the product over time and a Moots makes a wise purchasing choice.
From Patrick Barron CO-Owner of Chainwheel:
“Chainwheel is very excited to have Moots in our lineup and know that the bikes will get even better under Brent’s ownership.
