Moots, based in Steamboat Springs in Colorado since 1981, have an enviable reputation as makers of top end titanium frames. Moots frames still are highly coveted. They were one of the earliest adopters of the material and that expertise and passion for Ti comes through in this video, offering a rare insight behind the scenes to the processes involved in making a Moots titanium bike.
The video includes insights from some of the staff plus a generous helping of the local countryside, which looks beautiful. It also shows the various stages of making a frame.
While that video sets the scene, this one explains a little more about the actual manufacturing process.
