I went down to Bradford-upon-Avon on a particularly rainy Monday last week to visit the Moulton Bicycle Company at their factory in the grounds of Alex Moulton's Hall. Being a huge fan and having two Moultons myself, this was a day I was very much looking forward to.
After having a chat with Co-owner John McNaugton, meeting the Moulton team and having a tour of the factory, I was very privileged to be shown around the Hall by Moulton's Technical Director Dan Farrell. I then joined Sales Manager Steve Harvey and two prospective customers on a test ride where my steed was an all-stainless steel Moulton SPEED. Despite the torrential rain (I don't think I would have been any wetter if I'd fallen in the Avon) it was a fantastic experience!
It always amazes me how some customers come into the shop knowing nothing about Moulton but after a test ride where they experience the performance and comfort they're hooked! We currently have a Moulton TSR 9 in The Traditional Cycle Shop and early in the new year we'll be welcoming more models including other TSRs, an Earl Grey, a Jubilee and hopefully either a New Series SPEED or Double Pylon. You can book a test ride of the TSR 9 now by using the link on the home page of our website and I'll keep you posted about the arrival of the others.
