Riding a Moulton (I own an AM 14 and an APB), you enjoy the superior acceleration and handling of the smaller, lighter, more maneuverable wheels, and the wonderful get-up-and-go pedaling efficiency of Moulton's oversize frame tubing. And, what truly sets Moulton's revolutionary road bicycles apart is the full, balanced suspension. The 60 boasts a leading-link front and Hydrolastic fluid-damped and Flexitor bonded-rubber pivot rear suspension that take the sting out of rough pavement. You need to experience it to appreciate the difference it makes in staying comfortable and feeling strong (not fatigued) no matter how far you ride.
Here's a photo of the Moulton 60 with its numbered head badge, and below, one of Moulton's top-of-the-line models, the New Series Double Pylon. Also, I visited the Moulton Bicycle Company in 1998 and have more interesting information on the company and their amazing bicycles in this story. In it you'll learn more about Dr. Alex Moulton, the engineer who invented these remarkable cycles and who still heads the company at 91 years of age (where the 91 in a limited edition of 191 units comes from).
I highly recommend Tony Hadland's books and writings on Moulton bicycles too.
