    Moulton or Birdy Frameset --Where to buy??

    Hi All, I am looking for a frame set (frame + fork) of either a Moulton or Birdy bike. New or used works. Can anyone point out where I could purchase one, preferably online and in the US?

    Look for a Used one and then resell the parts you dont need.

    Use "Moulton bicycle frame" as your search. Roger

    Thanks for the links, unfortunately neither of those two sellers are allowed anymore to ship frames to the US, presumably to allow US dealers to make a profit. Unfortunately, in the US as far as I know one cannot simply purchase a frame, but a full bike. It is really disappointing to not have the option to build your own bike. I may just end up not buying a Moulton as a protest to their crappy policies..

    I have considered this option, Interparcel is a great forwarder that I have used before; things get more complicated when finding a trustworthy buyer...I am not obsessed with this purchase, so I am happy to give my money to another company.

    There is an authorized Birdy folding bike dealer in Manhattan New York. Check out www.bfold.com. I got my 9sp disk silver birdy from them last year. Ask for Peter there. He knows Birdy bike well. They might also carry Moulton as well.
