Over the last few weeks we’ve seen the frame, headset, handlebar & stem of this, my latest personal project bike. Wrapping the bars and choosing the right saddle are small choices with big impact in both look & performance, so I added HandleBra Leather tape, Hudz lever covers, and a Selle San Marco Rolls saddle for a truly classic look.
Over the last two weeks we’ve seen the frame and headset of my latest personal project bike - the Moots RSL. With the headset in place, it’s time to bolt on the steering mechanism – I went with Ritchey’s Classic Road Bar & 4-Axis Stem - in classic silver.
It’s no secret we love creating project bikes here at PEZ, and as Charles has set the bar pretty high over the years with builds in most materials and truly one-off paint schemes, the pressure to do something truly different grows with each build. To create a bike that was both modern and different, I looked backwards for inspiration, but chose some very current frame & components to make it real.
Recently, PEZ spent a little time in Steamboat Springs, Colorado to interview Jon Cariveau of titanium frame builders, Moots. The down to earth company in one of the best cities in Colorado has been making great bikes for years, but their latest and greatest, the Vamoots RSL, is a significant leap forward. PEZ recently spoke with Jon Cariveau from Moots about everything from the RSL to carbon to why coupling is so awesome.
