While carbon is surely the current material of choice in the bike world, titanium continues to have a passionate following thanks to custom builders such as Moots. And now the Colorado-based outfit has a new bike to tantalize its Ti devotees.
Meet the Moots Farwell, a 27.5-plus hardtail ripper spec’d with 2.8” tires that’s designed for all-day trail fun. And like most 27.5-plus set-ups, the Farwell can do double duty as a 29er if for instance you’re lining up to race a little cross country or simply want a little more roll-over capability.
As for the Farwell name, it comes from an iconic North Routt County, Colorado, mountain that’s nearby by where the bike is hand built in Steamboat Springs. Here’s more info about this intriguing bike:
- 44mm head tube
- 120mm fork with 110mm boost spacing
- 73mm English threaded BB
- 30.9mm dropper seat post
- 34.9mm front derailleur clamp
- Boost 148×12 thru-axle rear end spacing
- 160mm rotors with post mount brake

The Farwell is available in five stock sizes: (XS, S, M, L, and XL). Other key options include internal electronic routing, fender mounts and rack eyelets, polished or etched finish, engraved head tube, and color decal options. Like all Moots bikes, the Farwell comes with a lifetime warranty. Price for frame and fork is $4789. Complete bike as pictured is $7899.
Moots has also introduced new polished and blasted finish options, providing more ways to customize a Moots frame. Available on all Moots models and during the frame refinish process, this multi-step approach ultimately brings a chrome-like surface appearance on the frame where decals would normally be located.
Additional finish options include polished with engraved head tube, etched with or without engraved head tube, classic satin bead blast, and paint ready. Solid black decals or white decals with colored outlines can be matched with anodized seat collars, stem face plates and seat post side plates.
