Gear lust can strike me hard some times, even though I know better, much better. Still, there are times that it just sneaks up and bites me in the butt and makes me crave something so bad it can actually hurt a bit. I know all of you have had that same feeling at one time or another. For me, well I have a very big soft spot when it comes to products made in the USA and those that are made with the love of CRAFT in mind.
Yesterday it was the announcement by Moots that they would produce a limited run of snow bikes, the Moots FROSTI. Anyone that has ever seen the bikes that Moots handcrafts in Steamboat Springs knows what I am talking about. The welds and finish on these hand built titanium bikes are simply to die for.
Now if only someone would just place an order for me I would be one very happy cyclist :-)
This fall will see me finish up my 8,000 mile bike around america tour on my Salsa Fargo and then this winter I am planning on some long distance snow touring and my first ever adventure race, the Sustina 100 in Alaska.
