Moots Cycles Factory, Steamboat Springs, CO

My wife and I had the privilege of going to The US of A for our summer holiday. We flew into Denver, our prime target being Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons. They did not disappoint.

On the way back to Denver we stayed in a town called Steamboat Springs which is "Bike Town America"! We arrived on the Sunday afternoon just missing Lance Armstrong (in an MTB race) by 5 hrs. I was most upset as 11 years ago exactly the same thing happened when we last visited Steamboat (what are the chances of that?).

Well being a guy who knows how to treat his wife on her wedding anniversary, I had booked a tour round Moots Cycles Factory. All of us were gathered round Titanium tubes engrossed in the ins and outs of fabrication. I glanced over at my wife and saw her loitering at the back yawning and looking at the some unrelated stuff. I tell you. You treat the missus and this is what she does in return. How ungrateful!!! Only joking she's amazing and puts up with me!!

The tour was really informative and fascinating seeing a bike take shape from a bunch of tubes and bits and pieces and what beautiful machines they make at Moots.
