When Fudges Cyclestore took on the Moulton brand they wanted a short film that explained more about the history and the work that goes into these pioneering bicycles.
We visited the workshop where the bikes are made in Bradford-On-Avon in Wiltshire. We met the craftspeople behind the bikes and also the man behind the whole Moulton concept; Dr Alex Moulton, who has since sadly passed away.
Our filming and interviews were constructed into an observational documentary to highlight the craft of these wonderful machines as the people who meticulously construct them.
We got Vimeo Staff Pick and you can watch the film here.
About Moulton Bikes
In 1962 Dr Alex Moulton pioneered the small-wheeled bicycle revolution. All of today’s small wheeled cycles owe a debt of gratitude to the original Moulton ‘F’ frame design which not only introduced and proved the concept of full-size bicycles with small wheels, but also, right from their launch, utilised front and rear suspension systems for improved comfort and performance.
Dr Alex Moulton CBE RDI FEng (April 9,1920 – December 9, 2012) was a highly respected English engineer and inventor, renowned worldwide for his expertise in suspension design.
“The Moulton bicycle was born out of my resolve to challenge and improve upon the classic bicycle, with its diamond frame and large wheels, which has locked bicycle design into that form since the pioneering work in England of Starley and others at the end of the 19th century.”
The Moulton bicycle has been developed and refined constantly since 1962 and is held in high regard throughout the world.
