Moulton Speed: Stainless, Timeless
Built from aerospace quality Stainless Steel, the Moulton Speed is a hand brazed masterpiece.
The apparently complex and frail lattice work of the frame is actually an engineering design that results in lightness yet extreme strength.
As with all of Moulton's Speed-designated models, the Moulton Speed (this being the latest incarnation of this legendary name) has a fixed frame, ie non-separable.
This means it is uncompromising in its quest to be ridden fast. A fixed frame means that the effort input by the rider through the pedals is most efficiently transmitted to the road with no loss through frame vibration.
The other features that allow you to ride fast, yet with maximum control and minimal road bump include Moulton's leading link front suspension with floating stirrup, adjustable damping and adjustable ride height.
These allow you to set the front end of the bicycle up to suit your personal riding style.
Similarly with the rear suspension; Moulton's Hydrolastic rubber cone spring with internal fluid damping, give the rider confidence to push on.
This example, photographed at BRU2 in Frankel Avenue is completed with Campagnolo super record 22 speed groupset. Also available at My Bike Shop Too, Mid View City.
