This keychain design is one of the early Moots keychains, designed and created by our friend Mike Cherney up in Northern California. Moots brought it back to commemorate its 40th birthday and offers it in a limited edition 40th keychain. The price stings but it’s way cheaper than a new Moots!
The NORDEST KUTXO, the brand’s drop bar 29er touring bike, has been designed to snake down trails, levitate over mountains and devour kilometers of rough tracks. An adaptable geometry and wide component compatibility will allow you to enjoy this frame on all rides, from single-tracks to multi-day bikepacking or a long gravel route.
Accommodates 120mm forks and clearance for tires up to 29er 2.4. Its more open head tube angle and longer reach allow the use of shorter stems and wider bars. Adding a rigid fork makes for an ideal setup for long-distance riding.

We kindly asked Keaton from DOOM to make us some titanium Legal Drinker bars for our Radavist x Mosaic bikes and he obliged. Since then, he’s been making more bars in small batches. The latest being the Lucky Risers. These bars lack a moto-brace, spanning between the highest points, so they offer a springy amount of flex. Ditch the elastomer stem on your bike and get on board the titanium bars train!
- The Titanium Lucky Riser: 14 degrees backsweep, because you can’t stop at 13.
- 2” Rise and 6 degrees upsweep.
- 880mm wide, can be cut to 780mm with a 185mm grip area
- Raw Titanium Finish
- 22.2mm stem clamp (includes 31.8 or 25.4 shims if needed)
- 435grams at full width
- Includes Shipping in the the US, International orders email firstname.lastname@example.org

Knog knows your bike is a prized possession and leaving it unattended, even when secured, can be risky in some cities or locales. The new Scout provides unparalleled Bike security by combining both an extremely loud 85db bike alarm function with a highly accurate bike finder, using Apple’s ‘Find My’ app. It fits on any standard bottle boss – like the ones under your downtube – to tuck away behind your favorite bottle cage.
Once armed, any movement of a Scout fitted Bike will trigger the motion-sensitive audio alarm discouraging any further movement and alerting the bike’s owner, both by the sound of the alarm and via a notification that is automatically sent to the owner’s iPhone (when in Bluetooth range).
Then in a scenario where a bike fitted with Scout is not where the owner has left it, it can be located using Apple’s network via the ‘Find My’ app.
- Motion-sensitive 85 db audio alarm for immediate deterrence
- Can be located quickly using Apple’s ‘Find My’ app
- Operated using Knog iOS app
- Mounts to standard water cage braze-ons
- Can be mounted under water bottle cage for discretion
- Use supplied anti-tamper screws to mount securely
- Neon silicone cover provided to advertise security device (if desired)
- Arm / disarm using button (within 5 ft) or app within bluetooth range
- LEDs show alarm status & battery charge
- USB-C rechargeable with up to 6 months battery life
- Water resistant IP66 rating (washproof)
- Weights just 0.88 oz

MOOTS makes bikes in the Rockies and are the masters of metal…
As a teenager Andy McKenna was swept along by the first wave of mountain biking in the 80’s. It took over his life, relationships and career – until a life-changing diagnosis in 2007 truly opened his eyes to the healing power of the bicycle and flicked a switch on an evolution Andy could never have predicted in his lifetime.
