A PortaPedal exclusive!

This Alpine Green SST is a separable frame for compact storage and portability. The frame is constructed of Columbus Spirit and Reynolds 525 chromoly steel. Comes with maintenance-free Shimano Alifine 11 top-of-the-line internally geared hub.

We have built up a contemporary SST frame here in our shop to handle both tough urban commutes and quiet gravel trails. The frame was custom powder coated with a low gloss finish to bring out the richness of the Alpine Green color and the stainless dropouts were lightly sandblasted to compliment the muted frame finish. The result is a subtle, one of a kind Moulton.

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 road warrior or adventure bicycle than any conventional large wheeled bike. Because of its ability to separate, it makes it that much easier to transport your bike to a great riding destination by car or public transport. The bike can be further dissembled quite readily to fit into a large standard suitcase for airline travel, the Samsonite F’lite 31″ hardshell case is most often used.

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.
