Color: Bead Blasted Titanium
This titanium Moots Vamoots LT features a rugged and feather-light titanium frame outfitted for endurance riding, rough pavement and light touring. It can also be packed for transport more easily with a set of S&S couplers that allow the frame to be disassembled, along with quick-disconnect brake and derailleur cables. It is an example of just how creative Moots can get with their handiwork.
Using custom-butted titanium tubing, the ride quality of this machine is nothing short of phenomenal. if you've raved about the "feel of steel", titanium is even better! Moots built this MooTour to handle racks and panniers with eyelets and frame mounts. Three bottle mounts allow for long rides when no rest stops are in sight. There's even a pump peg for a full-length pump as well. A bead-blasted finish resists scratches and blemishes, while the head badge is metal, not a decal. A Wound Up carbon fiber fork features an alloy crown, adding a more supple feel, while a tough Chris King headset offers peace of mind over many miles of broken pavement. This bicycle will look like new for years- decades- to come.
Our 54cm example is built up with 10-speed Shimano Ultegra 6700 drivetrain components, including the 50/34T compact crankset, derailleurs, adjustable-reach dual-control levers, 11-27T cassette and chain. Precise shifting and long serive life are the hallmarks of Shimano's Ultegra components, and are an excellent choice for long-distance riding. Long-reach Shimano brake calipers offer excellent stopping power as well as versatility for a wide range of tire sizes and aggressive tread. The wheelset is built up around American Classic hubs, and features durable Stan's NoTubes 340 rims. 28mm Rivendell Ruffy Tuffy tires boast a robust casing and unique tread pattern for confident grip on a wide range of surfaces. A Titanium Moots seat post and stem add an extra element of smoothness, while an alloy Deda road handlebar and Fizik Aliante saddle complete this excellent machine.
