Former professional basketball player Reggie Miller needs no introduction. Since his retirement from the NBA, he found a love for cycling. At 6’7” he is the perfect candidate for a custom geometry bike since even the largest “stock” bike would be a bit small. Reggie has got his hands on a Custom Moots Routt RSL at SBT GRVL back in August, a hometown event for Moots.
Just for comparison, Reggie’s Routt RSL has a top tube length of 62.5cm (24.6 inches!), head tube length of 25cm (9.8 inches) and seat tube length of 58cm (22.8 inches). Our size 54 Moots Routt RSL has a top tube length of 54.5cm (21.4 inches), head tube length of 14cm (5.5 inches) and seat tube length of 51cm (20 inches).
“Well here she is, built from the ground up by @mootscycles in Steamboat Springs, and blessed by the painting God himself @mphpaint. Honored to debut her June 11th at the Ranch Rally Ride
in Steamboat Colorado for 75 glorious miles with @king_iz @emmerlin @jasonsiegle. Lots of meaning went into this bike, the 2 biggest are EQUALITY/ EQUITY. The main reason I ride/race is to bring more awareness of diversity and inclusion to the sport of cycling, honored so many sponsors jumped on board to be a part of this. This is also the rig I will riding for the @sbtgrvl August 14th, that will be 100 miles. Thank you @dweider @pfbikeshop @10speedcoffee for building her up, you’re the BEST mechanic, photographer and friend one could ask for.
Blessed to have partners like Moots
