Moots Cycles

Creating unique, high-performance bikes with titanium alloy and artisan-level craftsmanship.

Moots: Titanium Bikes Are Best


Moots began building bikes in 1981 as a team of experienced riders who wanted to develop the best possible bikes they could. Based in Steamboat Springs Colorado, the men and women at Moots like to ride singletrack, doubletrack, backcountry roads, and smooth, scenic tarmac. So that’s what they build - high performance machines for riding all kinds of terrain through beautiful country.

The first Moots bikes were made of steel, and in the early ‘90s they produced their first titanium frame. The company fell in love with the material for numerous reasons and has dedicated their brand to building some of the highest quality titanium bikes available. For decades, Moots has established itself as a top brand for road, mountain, cyclocross, and specialty frames. See for yourself why a Moots might just be the dream bike you’ve always wanted.

Titanium Crafstmanship

If there’s only one word that could describe how the team at Moots feels about their products and the process used to make them, that word would have to be pride.

As a small Colorado based company whose origins come from real riders with a real passion for bikes, the Moots team takes a lot of pride in what they do. They continue to refine, innovate, and build the best bikes possible for others to enjoy and they are proud to show you how much detail and effort goes into each and every frame.

Titanium is one of the most expensive and time-consuming materials to build bikes with, but Moots doesn’t cut a single corner and each frame goes through multiple stages of construction and finishing so that the frame you buy is absolutely perfect.

When you buy your bike, you’ll see the initials of the hard working men and women who did the welding, the hand-finishing, and the decal application on that specific frame. Moots is proud of their product and happy that you chose to own it.

Moots uses 3/2.5 titanium for their frames, meaning that they mix 3% aluminum and 2.5% vanadium into pure titanium. This process creates an alloy that’s uniquely suited for biking due to its lightness, stiffness, and durability. Every frame style and size has its own specific blend of tube diameters and wall thicknesses. This special, US-made Pi Tech tubing allows Moots to finely tune each and every frame to create the perfect ride quality every time.

A closer look at the building process reveals just how much thought goes into a Moots frame. 

The tubes are cold-worked to keep the center thin and the ends thick, and internally butting the tubes allows for thin, light walls while keeping the outside diameter as large as possible for the best strength-to-weight ratio possible. 

Moots is so confident in their frames that they guarantee each one with a lifetime warranty against any defects in material and workmanship. Moots also builds their own titanium components including stems, forks, and seat posts that also come with their own multi-year warranties.

Customers also have the option to select from several different finishes so you can really create your own one-of-a-kind bike. Here are the current finishing options, and for more images, visit the Moots website.

The Etched finish, just as it sounds, etches the logos onto the frame where the decals would typically be placed. It’s a subtle design that looks clean from far and even better up close. All new Moots Select Builds come with the Etched finish but can be upgraded to other options.
