Photo c. Moots Cycles News from Steam Boat Springs, Colorado, titanium bicycle manufacturer Moots Cycles introduces their new Womble Slider single-speed. The new Womble Slider is based on their iconic hardtail MTB, the Womble . This new single-speed uses Paragon Machine Works’ sliding rear dropout, and will have an optional dropout that makes the Womble Slider UDH compatible as well. Photo c. Moots Cycles Moots says this bike is for the “ultra-purist rider that wants a simplified connection to the bike and trail.”
Being based on the Womble’s progressive geometry, the Womble Slider is deemed a “modern-classic” mountain bike at home on single-track, XC trails, backroad gravel, and bike packing… making it a versatile titanium hardtail. Designed to take a 140mm travel front suspension fork, this clean, stripped-down, titanium single-speed is built with proprietary double-butted top and down tubes. Moots says it’s stiff under hard pedaling, making for a perfect single-speed platform.
Giving the rear end room for up to 29 x2.6″ tires, the curved seat tube also allows for the rear end to stay tucked for that out-of-the-saddle single-speed charge.
“Single speeding strips away all distractions other than pedal, coast, and carry momentum. Read the trail, and find the flow; the smiles will follow”. Womble Geometry
