Show #412 – August 4, 2018

Guest: Dave Moulton

As promised, I am joined this week by the iconic and venerable Dave Moulton.

Now in his 80’s, I would venture to say that he’s still as sassy, interesting, and well informed as he was in the heyday of his frame building – which we will discuss.

As you will hear, he’s built thousands of frames, written books and writes songs, and has a wickedly good sense of humor.

He recalls his days as a boy in England as well as his reasons for riding a bicycle in the first place.

He’ll remind of us terms we haven’t heard in years, give us his views on carbon, eBikes, and sew-up tires, and offer us his ideas on geometry and frame sizing.

Also, if you want to see Dave perform his song, The Ass Song – yep, you heard that correctly! You can go to You Tube and type in MUFIC Songwriter of the month Dec 2016: David Moulton – I guarantee, you will be singing the chorus by the end of the 5:43 second video.

There are quite a few interesting videos with Dave that will pop up too. You might want to grab an adult beverage and plan to spend some time.

I’m sure we missed something; but, we do end with the promise of another visit some time soon.

I hope you enjoy listening to the conversation as much as I enjoyed being engaged in it.

  1. Thanks for this!

    I was on business travel all week last week, stuck without a bike (and no time to research a rental), so I went into the hotel fitness room and ran on the treadmill (ugh). This podcast got me through it

      1. > Travel bike in your future?

        Maybe! In fact I asked my dad if he wasn’t using his folder if I could borrow it for the trip, but he was planning to use it so I was out of luck (but he’s riding, so that’s great!)
