What We Ride: Joe’s Mosaic XT-2

Mosaic XT-2 Cyclocross Handmade Titanium Bike in Boulder Colorado

Name: Joe Sampson

Position at TPC: Intake Specialist

What you ride: Mosaic XT-1

Why you ride it: It’s a custom machine that’ll last a lifetime, and there’s nobody else in the world with one quite like it. The titanium frame is stable and compliant, the wheels are the lightest Zipp makes, & the components are more than most any human needs. In the words of a semi-wise man and decent friend, “That’s way too much bike for you.”

Fun Facts: This bike’s paint job was dreamed up in the outfield with Mosaic & Spectrum Powderworks owner Aaron Barcheck during a championship season for the Boulder Rec Softball team, “Baby Batter”. Back in 2017, I won the Cold War Classic in a three man sprint on this bike in sub-zero temperatures, surviving numerous crashes through ice covered Castle Rock, CO.
