We have built up a contemporary SST frame to handle the rough terrain of a gravel trail. It seemed a natural progression to take advantage of the Moulton double suspension and durable construction to further enhance its rough road capability through the use of bomb-proof rims and tough, wide knobby tires. The tread pattern on the Schwalbe Marathon GT365 tires also make for a smooth ride on pavement. This SST frameset was special ordered to have front V-brakes mounts to allow for the use of wide tires. The rear disc brake already allows for this.
With its tunable front suspension and maintenance free rear shock absorption, this bike will isolate the rider from all the chatter and roughness of the road or trail, making it a more comfortable and suitable adventure bike than any conventional large wheeled bike. Because of its ability to separate, it makes it that much easier to transport your bike to the trailhead.
Small wheels don’t ride slower. In fact, they accelerate and turn much quicker and easier than larger diameter wheels providing an agile, nimble and exhilarating ride!
Improvements of the SST frameset: Front stirrup drop-outs are in Stainless Steel, stirrup block reduced in height to reduce weight and improve appearance, round-tapered chain stays to reduce weight and improve aesthetics, lighter rear fork upright tube with new dual-adjustment (height and angle) front derailleur mount, chainstay “X-brace” reinforcement with adjustable mudguard mount, in-line 31.6mm seat pillar (new design).
The frame-kit weight (frame, fork, seat pillar, headset) is reduced by 250g to c. 4900g. The SST is assembled at “The Hall” in Bradford upon Avon, England.
