With its triple cavity frame design Moustache haven’t needed to compromise on stiffness or weight unlike many other open frame designs flooding the bike industry. This design feat makes this bike perfect whether you’re looking for getting off the beaten track or simply getting fresh air on the everyday commute.
Why did the team at Moustache labour over this frame design for three years? In order to have an ultra low-step frame, the top tube which provides most of the strength must be removed. Normally this will result in a frame with excessive flex giving wobbly handling. To add strength, most manufacturers simply add more metal which of course adds more weight and may still not have the benefit of lateral stiffness which is key to confident handling. If all that sounds like gobledy-gook, just ride one for yourself to understand the Moustache difference.
For so many reasons the Moustache Xroad is New Zealand’s most sought after Rail Trail machine. With 80mm of trail-smoothing suspension and an ultra-comfortable suspended seatpost, the perfectly balanced ride will have you riding further, faster and happier.

Though we’re a bike shop that sells, builds and fixes bicycles, they’re really just the means to an end; albeit a beautifully designed means to an idyllic end. Our job most importantly is to encourage as many people as we can to get out and ride for transport and enjoyment. We'd love to make riding a bike as commonplace as your morning cup of coffee, which by the way is our other obsession.
