NAHBS 2013: One Off Moots Trail (Building) 29er Fat Mountain Bike
This is the Moots IMBA RCR (Routt County Riders) trail work bike.
It’s designed in collaboration with the local trail builders and something they hope to send around the country for IMBA and other trail care clubs to use.
First time they’ve done inside-the-triangle post mount disc brake tabs, and it’s running 203mm rotors front and rear to rein in the 45lbs of bike. Hubs are 170mm fat bike hubs with a 100mm crank spindle.
It’s like a pack mule, except sexy and titanium. Click on thru for the details…
Front rack has an integrated screw-together handle and trail tool with Rogue/Pulaski type tool head. They’re held on with stem face plates and a pinch bolt.
King cage built the custom extended bottle cage to hold a chainsaw fuel canister.
They also made a custom bell that doubles as a shot glass! It’s mounted to a massive 33″ wide handlebar.
Limited edition T-shirts are available for sale ($25) that benefit IMBA and RCR to fuel more trail building. These should be up at Moots.com soon.
