    Mini velo, not a folder. I wish they would market this F-frame, since it should cost less to produce than a space frame.

    My first response was to drool over the bike....




    My second response was to ask if Dr. Moulton really needed another bike for a present. Wouldn't you think he'd have enough of them by now? Maybe he should have gotten a tie or something.... ya know?

    More info here :http://www.moultonbuzz.com/

    There's also one he's just finished designing : the MDev 90.
    It might cost a bit less - as the spaceframe is made up of torqued together carbon fiber rods.
    However reality tells me it will still come into the 'if you have to ask you can't afford it' range.
    I will be sticking with my cheap under license Pashley/AM TSR30 until that lottery win comes in.

    Here is the Old Bean himself being interviewed, by some BBC oik who then scores a Moulton bike for the day, interviews at the factory - nice pix of the British countryside etc.

    8.5k for a bike is just a little unobtainable at he moment...

    I think most of the work these days is done by the Old Bean's nephew, Shaun Moulton.

    The old fellow is pretty spry for 89 years young.
    I wonder if its too soon or has anyone heard what that kick back belt drive Moulton is going to sell for.
