    After watching a thread on folders, I must note that Moulton's AM-ATB was the FIRST dual-suspension,
    modern mountain bike, and while it never dominated the market, its design had a considerable impact.

    Even today, Moultons are far better suited for most types of riding, including tracks and trails --
    than say, knobby-tired mountain bikes are laboring along on paved streets. While the Moulton's
    development has been slow, incremental and scientifically measured, the mountain bike world has been
    preoccupied with almost hysterical re-engineering, changing materials and geometries to fit a
    marketing plan, not any real drive towards a better bike.
