A bicycle is more than just a vehicle to many. "Moulton Bicycle Company, Yesterday and Today" (at http://bit.ly/Sqo4FD) is a story of a man who didn't agree with mainstream bicycles. The man was Alex Moulton, a respected engineer and inventor.
On the webpage, a video clip about the history of the Moulton bike is featured, as well as another of how it is now enjoyed in contemporary lifestyles.
Wikipedia states Moulton thought "the classic diamond frame was inconvenient to mount, difficult to adjust for size, and not suitable for both sexes". In 1962, he came up with the first generation F-frame mini bike, which became a hit in the 1960s along with miniskirts and Mini cars. Apart from its unique suspension design, the mini bike is recognised for its small wheels, stiff unisex frame, adaptability, and design innovation. The suspension frame is also separable for travelling.
