Building a titanium frame that satisfies the highest standards is a demanding endeavour, one that is best handled by a small team of specialists. That's what Chris Morgan, Mooro's founder, discovered after building his first titanium frame in 2015. Every member of the Mooro team brings something unique to its products, be it in the workshop, paint booth, or behind the scenes, refining our 3D-print files or web presence.
All Mooro frames, stems and seatposts are built in our workshop located in Perth on the west coast of Australia. Our name, Mooro, honours one of the regions occupied by the traditional owners of the land around Perth. It's an important acknowledgement that helps our sense of place and brings us closer to the land that sustains our activities.
Every Mooro frame is made from Grade 9 (3%Al/2.5%V) titanium tubing that is carefully selected to meet the demands of each design. The same level of discerning care is also applied to the rest of the frame—from the head tube to the dropouts—with the end result being a reasonably lightweight frame that will be hard wearing whilst delivering the sublime ride quality that titanium is known for.
Buying a Mooro frameset requires a number of choices, starting with the geometry of the frame and any extra fittings that might be needed. We also need to know about your choice of running gear and your desires for the final finish of the frame and fork. Every one of these choices is detailed on our web order form, along with photos and descriptions to help guide your decisions.
Once you have placed an order and paid our deposit, we will be in touch as we finalise the design of your frameset and schedule its manufacture. We utilise a payment plan that keeps pace with each production milestone to collect the balance owing on your order.
Since every Mooro frame is built one at a time, we are able to offer our customers a range of options for the final finish of the frame, fork, stem and seatpost. These include bead-blasting that shows off the raw beauty of titanium, a choice of anodised colours for our logos, and even personalised artwork. The latter includes commissioned designs by a local Aboriginal artist.
Our current frame catalogue comprises three models, two for the road, and one for all-road/gravel riding. Customers can choose to buy a frameset with a range of finishes and options, including our titanium stem and seatpost.
