So back in late 2015 I had an idea, but that’s all it was just an idea.
Luckily over the years I’ve met quite a few ingenious people off the back of my passion for all things two wheeled.
One of those people is Gary Moore, an engineer, a man of details , in some ways over obsessive.
We talked one night about my idea, about my reasons for this idea. I showed him a few scribbles I’d done I’d done with pencil and paper and this is where the MoTo V1 was born. Gary decided to come on board and well the rest you’ll read below.
Firstly my scribblings were hastily consigned to the bin with the manner of a used tissue and Gary set to work.
The brief was this, a frame that was what I consider future proof, a frame that is highly adjustable, a frame that would be the first production disc brake specific item, a frame that could run chain but more importantly the gates carbon belt drive without the need for any type of added linkage in the stays of the frame.
