TSR A-11 Ivory
Separable frame for compact stowage and ease of travel.
This unique Moulton TSR is equipped with Shimano’s high end 11 speed internally geared hub. This hub provides a huge 409% gear range which on this set-up results in 24 to 99 gear inches, low to high, a range large enough to handle steep hills as well as fast fitness rides. Just a great overall gear range! Equipped with optional TSR racks and bags, this bike would become an excellent no maintenance tourer or commuter. The Alfine 11 hub shifts extremely smooth and you can shift two gears at a time in either direction. One advantage to an internally geared hub over a standard derailleur system is that it can be shifted while at a stop, great for shifting down to a lower start-up gear while waiting for the green light.
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.
