Moulton's small-wheeler up for an Award

Hippyshopper says:
Moulton NS Speed Stainless
Still prevaricating about whether to ditch the bus for an about-town bicycle? Here's an incentive to help you off the fence: Alex Moulton's classic NS Speed Stainless bike (pictured) is up for a design award for its featherlight weight, gorgeous looks and ability to motor along despite having tiny wheels. Regardless of whether it wins, the nomination by James "cyclone vac" Dyson adds a lot of credibility to this ideal city commuter. It's up against the iPod, Millennium Dome and Jasper Morrison in the New Designers' awards.

Even non-hippies can vote for their (my) favorite bicycle in this British design competition. There is, naturally, only one bike—which makes things a bit one sided—but as Grant Peterson might say: "There is nothing wrong with that."

Besides, good touring bikes don't get much press. Vote early and often; no lines, no waiting, everybody counts.

Yours in Cycling,
