Moulton - whats going to happen now?
I'm wondering if we'll now see some more innovation and experimentation with the bikes.
Sir Alex obviously wasnt too keen to embrace disk brakes or Rohloff/Alfine hubs.
I'm sure he had his reasons, but I never read/heard them expressed so am unsure of the reasons.
I'm also curious as to why the TSR27 went away from the APB's wider tyre clearances. This has made me keener to refurbish my APB frame rather than investing in a TSR. The trail surfaces here in WA that I've seen seem to benefit with wider tyres (IMHO). My APB I think can stretch to 2.1x20 (from memory) if I remove the mudguards so I definitely not impressed with the TSR27's max of 1.75 sans mudguards or 1.6 with the fenders.
What says you?
