As in previous years, the Moulton stand at Interbike has featured in the blogosphere. This year, only one bike has featured, and it looks like a new or a hybrid model, perhaps a prototype.
Bike Rumor refers to it as
$14,500 Moulton Speed stainless steel 20″ bike
As more people are riding bikes and forgoing their cars I guess we’ll see more of these ‘car priced’ bikes? What to do with all that extra money I’ll save by not driving a car…buy a bike priced like a car!
KOOWHO has some more detailed photos.
My interpretation of the limited information thus far, with the help of the Moulton Bicycle Yahoo Group:
- It is a hybrid model, based on an AM Speed S (stainless, non-separable).
- Reynolds 953 stainless steel tubing
- 20 inch/406 wheels
- AM front forks, adapted for nominal 20 inch wheels.
- New Series single diameter seat tube, unified rear triangle, and hydrolastic suspension.
