Moth Attack
  • winkybiker

    A bike designed to be ridden, but with some really quirky touches. I love it. Top-tube cable route is something I considered, but ultimately went with fully housed – same outcome – it just works. Great to see a slightly distressed bike that’s obviously getting properly used. Wear them out people. It’s the best thing you can do to a bike.

      yep, totally agree…bikes are made to be ridden and although I try to keep my rigs in ‘showroom condition,’ they still have their own nicks and scars from a cross race.

      I was going to say moth-eaten, but thought that a little unkind for something so beautiful.

    As fascinating as the bike build (and images), are the behind-the-scenes stories, especially RJ’s. Thanks JH and CT.

      Glad you enjoyed it! I actually had no idea about Rudi’s accident until Brett told me about it. It’s truly an incredible story.

    Very enjoyable for this Friday. We need more of these stories – thanks James.

  • This is awesome! A bike that not only tells a story but a story that leads to a bike. And I am very much into bikes that can and will be ridden hard no matter where. Now some frittes with majo please….

    1- I would like to see more pics of the owners riding their “Bikes of the Bunch”. It adds more to the personality. I scrolled to see the owner and I was like, I totally get it!
    2- Are the 32mm tyres run tubeless? Roubaix is my dream, and I’m gonna need a different bike to make it round as my current only takes 25mm tubed, which I hear is a recipe for disaster around there, so am doing research. ‘Easy’ and ‘Roubaix’ in the same sentence has me sold on 32mm! Just need to know if I need to learn how to set up tubeless now :)

      Ok, noted on the owner images! We’ll do what we can in the future.

      As for the tires, yes, they’re tubeless. Given the right tire and rim combination, you should be able to bottom the tire on occasion and still not get a pinch flat.
