Limited stocks for the Eclipse X22 will be available by Dec 2020. 26 inch wheel with the choicest components.  With hand-built 26” wheels and race-tuned geometry, it’s a full sized road bike, but it folds down small in 10 seconds. It boasts an Ultegra drivetrain, and—just in time for the UCI’s new regulations—a set of Shimano hydraulic disc brakes. With a stealth black finish, hydroformed fork, red Syntace accents, and perfected engineering, the X22 inaugurates a new chapter in Tern design

Alex Moulton

Next, the Alex Moulton range, the cycling equivalent of owning a Bentley or Rolls MBSRoyce. The Moulton Bicycle is the original full-suspension, separable, small- wheeled, high-performance bicycle, world-renowned for speed, efficiency, durability and comfort.

Alex Moulton Speed with a Bentley in the backdrop

Double Pylon with Rolls Royce.  Expertly engineered for over 50 years and handcrafted in England, these bicycles are the world’s most efficient form of transport – designed for universal use, real performance and comfort. These bikes are not hard to spot, whether gleaming in Stainless Steel or resplendent in a custom paint job. Starting at just over S$8,000 (AM Speed) and running as high as S$26,000 (Double Pylon) the powerhouse of the range is the Moulton Speed in Stainless Steel at just over S$15,000.

Alex Moulton Double Pylon. Did you know that the late Alex Moulton pioneered the suspension design that went into the Mini?

As a radical design, the Moulton bicycle – the first small-wheeled adult bicycle – needed credibility in the market and Alex Moulton realised the importance of this when planning the launch of the bicycle in 1962. Aided by his Marketing Manager David Duffield, himself a record-breaking cyclist, several riders were actively supported by Moulton. Coventry CC pursuit team were unstoppable on the track, their Moultons allowing them to keep in a tight group to reduce aerodynamic drag; road riders benefited from the reduced aerodynamic drag of the small wheels and, with a reputation established, the Moulton became acceptable to the most discerning club cyclists. Following the introduction of the UCI (Union Cycliste Internationale) rule 1.3.018, Moultons are not permitted in road-racing events – this is why you never see them in events like the Tour de France – but they are still used in time-trials and for ultra-distance events.  Watch video Moulton Coventry CC 1962  

How do you know you are staring at one of the high-end,  handcrafted Moulton and not the standard Moulton TSR range (that gets you on a Moulton for just under S$3,000)? Other than the refined components, you will notice

the “kinked” bottom section of the spaceframe. This is a dead giveaway that you are looking at a top-end Moulton, with the enhanced performance and comfort characteristics. The TSRs are truly awesome to ride, thanks to the late Dr Alex Moulton’s pioneering work on suspension design for small wheels. Moulton has taken everything they learnt in engineering design and conceived the SST.  Although no “kinked” spaceframe, Moulton wanted to improve on the TSR series, and have introduced a whole host of engineering innovation.

Dahon – 35 years in folding bikes

 New models to be announced soon.

The attack of the Minivelos

Tern working with Roji released the Surge series. Non-foldable but equipped with choicest components. They are fast and lighter on the wallet. No stocks for now.

Last but not least is Tyrell bikes

The X design frame made popular in Japan is now being challenged by Tern Roji. While they work hard to reduce prices, the original design proves popular. Stocks not available till Dec 2020.

Bike prices and accessories depicted on the bikes are subject to change. For the avoidance of doubt, please check with the store staff.

The Moulton Spaceframe is so easily recognised. Unique, iconic, d0258552_17595385

engineering artistry with the frame lattice and just so classy in looks,  it really sets you apart.

HOWEVER…

The stainless steel of Bradford made bikes are the epitome

moulton-masterpieces-speed

of the elite when it comes to small wheeled seperable or fixed bikes. Aircraft stainless steel frame but really expensive.

Introducing the New SST. Features the essential Moulton ‘ingredients’ but in a more affordable frame material:

  • Fillet-brazed construction in Columbus Spirit and Reynolds 525 CrMo steels.
  • Moulton leading-link front suspension (with soft rebound stops, hex key adjustment)
  • Moulton rubber-cone ‘Monosphere’ rear suspension, oversized rear pivot bearing.

Unified rear fork with triple-crankset/compact clearance.
Kingpin separability (hex-key operation).
