Bridgestone

The Bridgestone Moulton is manufactured by the Bridgestone company in Japan since the year 2000.

It is similar in style to the original F-frame Moultons, built with modern componentry and construction methods. The frame is made of welded extruded aluminium tubes.

The design features all of the essential Moulton characteristics – step through frame, small wheels (in this case 17 inch), suspension front and rear, optional frame separability.

Bridgestone engaged Dr Alex Moulton as a consultant to design the bicycle and they sell it under licence. Dr Moulton himself owns a Bridgestone Moulton and has frequently been seen riding it, as shown below.

      Dear Sir,

      I live in HK and recently brought a 10-year-old Bridgestone Moulton [S18 (53T/42T x 9T-26T), white body black 'legs']. It is a beauty and still functional but many parts obviously need replacement, especially the tires. Would you mind advising on specifications of the tire (? 17″ x 1.25) and the resources that I may get spare parts? Thank you very much for your help!

      The Bridgestone models are fitted with 17 inch tyres, probably 17×1 1/4. The most fool proof way of selecting the correct tyre is to look for ETRTRO 369mm tyres. The widths available vary from one manufacturer to the next, but are likely to be between 28mm and 32mm, i.e. 28-369 or 32-369.

      Your best bet is to contact your local Moulton dealer to see what is currently available. http://www.moultonbicycles.co.uk/dealers.html#HongKong
