36 miles, 2 1/2 hours of cool

So I rode my 1964 Moulton(16" wheels, full suspension)out to the airport and back. The bike doesn't look tired because he's 5 years younger than me.

Where is the other roller skate? Just kidding, it actually does look cool. How did you feel after the ride other than being tired?

Is that a fold-up bike, or is it just a "unique design" bicycle?

It doesn't fold but they made a version that came apart in the middle. It felt great! The suspension really works. Moulton still makes bikes. After you win the lottery, you can buy this one http://portapedalbike.com/products-p...ew-series-red/ You can add about 9 grand to that price for the double pylon model with the Rohloff hub. From the Moulton website : "Following the introduction of the UCI (Union Cycliste Internationale) rule 1.3.018, Moultons are not permitted in road-racing events - this is why you never see them in events like the Tour de France - but they are still used in time-trials and for ultra-distance events."
