Contender Bicycles is proud to continue our partnership with Moots and offer their beautifully hand-crafted bike frames to avid cyclists of all levels. We offer Moots because we believe that their titanium frames are the best alternative to carbon-fiber, with a fine ride quality and exceptional longevity. The custom-drawn titanium tubesets used in all Moots frameset balance all of the material’s benefits based on frame design, size and intended use. Nobody does titanium with the same level of quality and precision as Moots, with each and every frame, stem and seatpost handmade in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.

The Moots legend began decades ago, when their first lugged steel road bike hit the pavement in 1981. Soon after, the Mootaineer (Moots’ first mountain bike) took to the endless trails surrounding their hometown Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Moots continued to evolve, shifting to tig-welded frames which offer greater flexibility in geometry, tube selection, and frame design. Seeking to make their bikes even better, Moots showcased their first titanium frame in the early 1990s, and in doing so, ushered in the gold standard in titanium frame design. Today, Moots continues a steady development cycle of new products and revisions to their standards such as the Vamoots, Womble, and PsychloX. What hasn’t evolved is the amazing build quality of their frames. You can view a new Moots bike as a long-lasting investment that is built to pay you back with mile-after-mile of impeccable performance.

Finally, Moots’ construction process is very unique, and allows Moots to perfect how their tubes fit and speed up delivery times. This is why Moots offers a range in sizes, rather than only offering custom. Custom touches such as sliding dropouts (for single speed drivetrains), additional braze-ons, S&S couplers, and headtube extensions can be added to nearly any bike. RSL ultra-lightweight versions are available in nearly every frame platform, for those looking for the lightest titanium can offer. There are a plethora of finishing options, and Moots continues to offer refinishing packages, to turn a well-loved Moots Ti frame into a like-new Moots Ti Frame. And most importantly, Moots frames are handcrafted in the Rocky Mountains for years of loving use.
