Moots Offers Trade-Up Program

Got an old Moots like the 1989 Zerkel shown above, or perhaps you have a Baxter, and you’re looking for a new bike like a Womble or a Routt ESC? Well, Moots just announced an all-new trade-up program. There’s no doubt that many of the beloved products the brand has produced since 1981 still make riders smile, 20 and 30 years later.

Moots owners now have the opportunity to turn their existing, rideable frame, into a $2,000 credit towards a complete bike direct from Moots! This program applies whether you’re the original owner or not. There are no model or production year restrictions. Check out more at Moots.

Moots Unveils a Brand New 2024 Vamoots 33 Disc Road Bike

When you consider that a lot of Moots’ bikes run for well over the $11,000 mark, a brand new, electronic shifting disc brake Moots doesn’t seem that bad at $7,499. The Vamoots 33 is as entry-level as Moots will get without sacrificing what makes a Moots a Moots: the welded in house frame constructed from US made titanium. This build joins the long legacy of the Vamoots family of road bikes from Moots. A bit of DNA from each model that has come before it has played a part. Tip of the hat to Vamoots, Vamoots SL, Vamoots RSL, Vamoots Disc RSL and even the more recently Vamoots CRD and Vamoots RCS.

The Vamoots 33 is priced competitively with other manufacturer’s high end carbon road bikes but will last a lifetime and is made in the Rockies.

Bike Piles Filled with Dreams: A Visit to Iron Wheel Trading

Bike Piles Filled with Dreams: A Visit to Iron Wheel Trading

On a side street of Hayden, Colorado is an unmarked historical building. At first, I couldn’t even find which door led inside. Essam greeted me and invited me to wander around. Before long I’m enraptured with the stacks of bikes and parts that fill the small space. Once I pull my jaw back off the floor, Essam bends my ear with the tall tales from Hayden, how his shop got its name, Moots history, and the crazy injury that lead him down the path of owning Iron Wheel Trading. In a town that is mostly blown through by people on their way to Steamboat Springs, there is a special treasure waiting for those who stop to pay a visit to Essam and his shop.

The Radavist’s Top Ten Readers’ Rides of 2022

We first began featuring Reader’s Rides back in 2011; since then these part-review, part-vignette reader submissions have become a beloved weekly fixture here on The Radavist. This year’s Top Ten Readers’ Rides feature both brand new builds and older frames full of stories that have been given new life. As always they are 100% audience-submitted and the builds highlighted here were chosen based on web traffic and engagement. We love receiving submissions each week so if you have been on the fence about submitting your ride, perhaps this list will motivate you to break out the camera and show off your rig. Read on for some choice submissions from 2022…

The Radavist’s Top Ten Bike Reviews of 2022

Every year, we get offers from companies, both large and small to review one of their upcoming bike models. We take on what we can and lean on our contributors for the ones we can’t fit into our own schedules. We’re still just three people running this site over here! At the end of the calender year, we dig through our analytics, social media channels, and comments to determine which bikes did the best and compile a list. This year’s ran the gamut from full suspension mountain bikes to, cargo, all-rounder and gravel racing machines. There’s something for everyone in this one, so read on for The Radavist’s Top Ten Bike Reviews of 2022!
