A 1983, first production year Moulton AM2, graces the walls of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. It was considered a real marriage of aesthetics and engineering. This Special Edition commemorates that initial showing and celebrates the life work of Alex Moulton, the bikes’ designer.
The bike is equipped with Shimano’s top-of-the-line Alfine 8 speed internally geared hub for a maintenance-free transmission and wide range gearing.
The frame is separable for compact storage and ease of travel. The bike can be further disassembled to fit in a standard size suitcase.
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 tune-able 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.
Spec Highlights: Sturmey Archer 54t crankset with double guards. Shimano Alfine 8 internally geared rear hub with 18t cog, Avid single 5 digit V-brakes with Avid FR-5 brake levers, Selle Royal saddle, double wall aluminum rim with Schwalbe Racer 20×1.5 tires.
Comes complete with Moulton TSR Day Rack and Day Bag.
