The latest bike from Moots – the Vamoots 33 – pushes the boundaries of what a road bike is with big tire clearance & versatility that edges towards gravel. And thanks to simplified construction, it’s the most affordable made-in-Colorado bike you can get from them.
Moots Vamoots 33 titanium all-road bike
The new addition to the Steamboat Springs, CO, brand’s road bike lineup is built to ride any road. The Moots Vamoots 33 comes ready for fenders, big tires, and do-it-all geometry. Like the similarly “more affordable” gravel Routt 45, the Vamoots 33 takes its numbered name from a local county road in Moots’ backyard, not its tire clearance.
In fact, Moots designed the new all-road bike to fit 700×38 tires with fenders, making it a jack-of-all-trades model with subdued endurance road geometry. It’s a bike for folks who don’t want something as racy as the Vamoots CRD or Vamoots RCS, but still want a solid performer.
Keeping cost down a bit, the big difference between the 33 and other Vamoots is the tubeset. Moots welds the 33 from thin-wall but straight-gauge 3/2.5 titanium tubes, whereas the higher-end models use custom double-butted tubes with some sections made from lighter 6/4 ti.
The Vamoots 33 still gets Moots’ latest 3D-printed titanium flat mount 12mm thru-axle dropouts…
…and hooded dropouts with a replaceable hanger.
Other details include conventional internal cable routing, a 27.2mm seatpost, proper head badge, 44mm headtube for tapered steerers, and a standard BSA threaded bottom bracket (not T47 like the higher-end models).
Moots Vamoots 33 – Pricing, options & availability
Complete Vamoots 33 bikes start at $7500, available in 9 stock sizes (48-62cm). That’s nearly $6000 less than the base Vamoots CRD or $4500 less than a Vamoots RCS.
That lower cost of entry gets you a wireless SRAM Rival AXS 2x groupset, alloy Zipp cockpit, and aluminum DT Swiss E1800 wheels wrapped in 32mm Panaracer Gravel King Slick tires.
There are also ample kit upgrades for anyone looking to build up a more premium rando bike or all-road mile cruncher.
