Those same qualities make theVamoots Disc RSL an instant clas-sic, though its far from traditional. Moots uses gram-saving butted tubes with 3-D-printed titanium through-axle dropouts, and nine frame sizes fit a wide range of cyclists. The Steamboat, Colorado, brand will match tubing diameter to your weight and riding style, and offers add-ons like fender and pump mounts and internal routing for electronic drivetrains. Seasoned riders familiar with Ti frames from decades past conceded that the bikes stiffness and precise handling was on par with their own carbon-fiber wnderbikes. The frame also muted road chatter in a way that no carbon model in our test could. Comfort, performance, and customizability in a U.S.-made bike doesnt come cheap. But treat this right and youll be handing it down to your grandchildren.BIKE | OUTSIDEBUYERSGUIDE2020 85SBG20_BIKE_GOYRoadBike_rlsd_458011.indd 85 3/31/20 11:38 AM'
