The Steamboat Springs based bike company Moots, has put together the “ultimate bike for trail building.”
Moots’ awesome titanium creation is first and foremost a go-anywhere, do-anything rig with enormous 50mm-wide Surly Rabbit Hole 29er rims wrapped with 3in-wide Surly Knard tires
The as-yet-unnamed bike’s payload will certainly help forge one if necessary. The rear rack handily secures a full-sized chainsaw (complete with custom titanium blade cover, no less), the matching front rack anchors a wicked three-piece custom titanium McLeod, while a custom front triangle bag stores other essentials such as a folding saw, pruners, and rain gear. There’s even space in between the longtail’s rear wheel and seat tube for a 0.6L bottle of fuel.
All in – chainsaw included – the nearly 100 percent titanium machine weighs in at a surprisingly svelte 19kg (42lb).
Moots is not planning on putting the bike into mass production, but they instead built the beast to show that trails can be built without the aide of motorized vehicles. For more info and to see more pics visit the original Cycling News article here.
