This XTB frameset was handmade at “The Hall”, the Moulton factory in Bradford-upon-Avon. Custom build by PortaPedal Bike.
The Moulton XTB is a contemporary interpretation of one of Alex Moulton’s most innovative designs: the AM-ATB. It was the world’s first double suspended mountain bike. Since production of the AM-ATB stopped in April of 1992, we’ve been eagerly awaiting it’s resurgence; and now it’s finally here!
The Moulton XTB brings full suspension comfort to all kinds of rough roads, trails, and gravel paths. the double suspension not only isolates you from the surface chatter, but keeps both tires tracking when the going gets tough, providing greater stability and safety.
The separable frame allows the bike to pack down to a small size quickly for easy transport to the trailhead.
