Moots comes to Frederick Maryland!

The Bicycle Escape is more then excited to welcome Moots into the TBE family of handmade frame offerings. Moots has been building beautiful Titanium frames in Colorado since 1981. The frame pictured is the 10 year anniversary YBB mountain bike frame. The bike has a pivot-less rear suspension system and accommodates 29" wheels. I think this will be my next bike.

Wild Goose Chase

This past Sunday was the Wild Goose Chase bike ride in Cambridge, MD. It is the first year I have done this ride. I went with my Single Speed Outlaw buddy, Maili and together we rode 25.2 miles. It was a beautiful and fun day. My Yipsan sunflower bike did great and attracted a lot of attention.

Schwinn Re-Birth

This was a fun project. The old Schwinn American Deluxe was rustier than an old grill. Our orders were to restore it with out doing any re-chromeing or paint work. We were quite pleased with the results. The chrome brightened up really nice and we fixed both the front light and the electric horn. The only parts we replaced were the tires and the damaged pedals.
