I just read that whole thing. I need to take a breather. that is cool and very inspirational - a true pioneering spirit in that guy. I want to go to Bielefeld and ask him if I can ride his bike!!

I just saw a Moulton in Toga yesterday. Wicked looking bike! The linked bikes in the OP and below, though, are FUGLY (fo' times ugly!).

Fugly but practical! Crazy!

LittlePixel summed up Moulton pretty well recently...gotta say, his rant is one of the best ever on the subject.

Yeah despite the fubar/fuglyness of it all i gotta also give massive props to that guy for designing, enginering, and building a very original and hardcore performance bike nearly from scratch. I also have to agree with has assesment that 90% of the bike industry has given the public very little inspired and forward thinking (rather than marketing orientated) gear for quite some time now.
