[tps_header]The Moots Baxter 29″ is the latest addition to Moots’ adventure/cross bike line. Designed from the ground up, the Baxter is a multitalented handbuilt titanium machine well suited for either drop or straight bars and is compatible with a rigid or 100mm suspension fork. The Baxter will be on display at Moots’ Eurobike (Hall/Stand No. A1-110) and Interbike (booth #13134) booths.
This new rig from Moots appears to be the mixing up of a Mooto X 29er hardtail with the newer Routt 45 gravel bike? The new Moots Baxter, a modified mountain bike with a lower BB and drop bar capability that might just be what that NAHBS prototype turned into.
“The new Moots Baxter is ideal for almost any cycling adventure you can imagine – bikepacking, touring, single-track, double-track exploring, gravel, the Tour Divide…Baxter can handle it all. It has mountain bike capabilities with a monster cross build,” said Jon Cariveau, marketing manager at Moots. “The frame optimizes features from both the gravel road and mountain bike worlds using the perfect combination of materials and frame geometry for the job.”
Named after Moots’ resident banana-eating Chocolate Labrador, The Baxter is handbuilt in Steamboat Springs, CO from Moots’ proprietary 3/2.5 Pi Tech titanium tubing featuring:
