A smart choice to avoid electronic shifting.

No Campagnolo... hmmm.

First of all, that's a fantastic bike.

A Routt 45 would be a dream choice for me!

As for Campy on gravel, it's a toss up for me.

All of my new "off topic" bikes are SRAM or Shimano.

However, I have two gravel bikes (BMC Monstercross and Bilenky tourer) that are Campy. I have a triple on the Bilenky with a 13/29 rear cluster. The BMC runs a compact Centaur crank with a similar 13/29 rear cassette. The mid cage Centaur rear handles shifts without issue.

I'd wager the op's Moots is a dream ride. Maybe one day.....

I have been a Campagnolo follower for a long time.
I do admit the recent 600 tricolor group is good, but it is early enough that it has downtube shifters, the 8 Speed first generation Dura-Ace I have is OK, but I don't like the disposable integrated shifter for the rear mech. Not an Octo bottom bracket fan.
I just could not adapt to the SRAM doubletap workaround to everyone else's patents.
I have grey hair, I have a set view of things.

Agreed on the doubletap.

However, I use X01 Eagle on my Yeti. I switched from Shimano XT. So far, so good.

MY Blackborow uses GX Eagle and seems to be bulletproof.

My Stigmata uses a drivetrain that's virtually identical to the op's Moots.

Best shifting bike I own.

To keep on topic though, I love the welds on Moots framesets.

The Routts I've seen are pieces of bike art.

The Weld lines on the Moots look very tidy. Having owned a titanium bike - there is an understanding of the material now that is apparent in the design differences now used.

with bigger diameter - even tapered steerers- I am surprised there are not more Ti forks.

I have DI2 on my Tarmac. I love it! Just wanted to save some doh. I like how the front derailleur self adjusts so you never get chain rub!

I am a total fan of Campagnolo. To do that it would of added a lot of cost. I was able to get a "group" deal getting a pkg from Moots. My next road bike will be campagnolo Record for sure. Probably going to have to wait a year. I had two bike purchases that were large in 2019 and started to build a new bike mancave coming Mid 2020. Thinking Colnago C64 or Pinnarello F12

Absolutely mouth watering.

A really gorgeous bike.

Congrats on your good fortune.

edit:

Couple of quick questions. How wide of tire will fit? Also, is that a 11-36 cassette?

It takes up to a 45c. That is why they call it the Routt 45. That is an 11-34 cassette.

Thanks!

Very nice indeed! I know nothing about modern bikes, what is the advantage of Ti over carbon? I was at the Trek shop and found a carbon bike that was beautiful and the guy at the shop told me to pick it up. It felt like the bike weighed nothing and when I asked he said16lbs. I know most of the high end road bikes are much better at delivering the power to speed, but other than them being lighter I wouldn’t know . I do know that being light isn’t everything, as I mount my vintage steel racers! ha ha Joe

Take that cool headbadge off and send it to me so you can get it under 20lbs.

Seriously, very nice bike.

Ha, I see what you did there, Jerry.

I hate to say this, but that thing would most likely be a "quiver-killer" for me, the way I am riding bikes these days. It could take me everywhere I currently wish to go. Very nice!
