In 1988, Alex Moulton developed the first ever double-suspended mountain bike called “The ATB”, or “All Terrain Bicycle” based on his space-frame design. Inspired by the original ATB (no longer in production), we have built up a contemporary TSR frame to handle the rough terrain of a gravel trail. It seemed a natural progression to take advantage of the Moulton 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.
The Moulton is perhaps the best riding bike on the road today, no matter what size the wheels, smooth and responsive. This is due, in large part, to the frame’s double suspension system. The Moulton’s tunable suspension allows the advantage of strong, rigid wheels in combination with high pressure/low rolling resistance tires, while still providing a more comfortable ride than a conventional bike. The suspension also maintains and improves traction on rough surfaces.
Small wheels don’t ride slower. In fact, they accelerate and turn much quicker than their large diameter brethren which makes these bikes just plain exhilarating to ride.
