About the Moser Bikes brand
Born on June 19 1951, Francesco Moser was one of the dominant riders from the mid 1970’s till the mid 1980’s. He won one Grand Tour title, one World Championship Road Race title, and six victories in cycling’s five monuments, including three consecutive victories in the Paris-Roubaix Classic. Moser began his professional career in 1973. He had an almost effortless pedal stroke that provided great power. Moser was an intimidating figure on the bicycle, but due to his powerful build, Moser wasn’t a gifted climber. Moser’s lasting accomplishment may be that in 1984, he broke Eddy Merckx’s 1972 hour record. However, the bike Moser used didn’t look anything like that which Eddy Merckx used and in 1997 the Union Cyclist International banned all records which were set on bikes with technological advantage over those used in 1972. The record did, however, stand for years and the attempt further opened the door to new technology in cycling. Moser retired from the professional ranks in 1987.

Magazine reviews for Moser Bikes Speed Sora
Review from road.cc
The Moser Speed is everything you need from an entry-level road bike. It's efficient, quick, not over-heavy and reasonably comfortable too.
Solid entry level road bike that performs admirably; real bargain at the current price.

£500 alloy road bike carrying the name of Francesco Moser lands in the road.cc bike shed
by David Arthur October 3, 2013
The £488.60 Moser Speed carries the name of Francesco Moser on its down tube, a professional cyclist who in 1977 won the road race world championships and the Giro d'Italia in 1984, along with a string of other victories in cycling's five monuments, including three consecutive vict
ories in Paris-Roubaix. Perhaps his most famous feat was to break Eddy Merckx's hour record in 1984.
His name is found on a range of road bikes, from a hand-made Italian carbon fibre bike at the top of the range and, at the entry-level, this alloy framed Speed. Moser bikes are brought into the UK by online retailer Wiggle. This model, one of a six-bike range, combines a smart 7005 T6 aluminium frame, carbon fork and Shimano Sora double groupset. It looks like a great package for anyone new to cycling and looking to purchase a well specced road bike.
The frame has distinctive triangular top and down tubes, and a smart presence with its white paint finish and stylish decals. It's designed with a semi-compact geometry, with a slightly sloping top tube. The gear and brake cables are routed externally, so they're easy to service, and a replaceable alloy derailleur hanger is a good damage prevention measure at the dropout.
With carbon fibre blades and an alloy steerer, the fork is painted to match the frame. The headset is a simple straight 1 1/8in design.
The bike wears a Shimano Sora 9-speed groupset with a 12-28 cassette paired with a FSA MegaExo compact 50/34 chainset, so that's a good spread of gears if you're planning a few longer rides with hills. Moser offer the frame in five sizes and the crank arm length is specific to the size. On this 58cm model they measure 175mm. That's a nice touch, something often overlooked by other manufacturers, and shows that Moser really care about fit. The stem lenght and handlebar width also relate to frame size.
Fulcrum's Racing Sport 7 clincher wheels are reliable and stiff with a decent weight of 1,849g for the price. They're fitted with a pair of Vittoria Zaffiro 23mm tyres. The handlebar is an FSA Vero with a compact bend, so the drops aren't too low or far away when you want to go a bit faster in an aero tuck, with a width that is specific to the frame size. An FSA OS-190 stem and SL-280 seatpost, and Selle San Marco Ponza saddle complete the package.
On our scales, the bike weighs 9.4kg (20.75lb). That's not too bad for a bike at this price.
Now, the sub-£500 road bike market is a hot one, with lots of contenders from the big brands, and smaller less known companies, all vying for the attention of the new cyclists getting into the sport. Our £500 to £900 buyer's guide gives a good overview of what you can expect for the money, and against them the Moser Speed stacks up well. However, it must be pointed out that it is a £700 bike reduced by 30%. That does mean you get more for your money, but we're not sure how long this offer stands for.
If you're reading this and you are new to road cycling, then might we recommend a read of our guide to buying your first road bike. It really is packed with lots of useful information on where to start, the difference between frame materials, choosing the right size, components and wheels to expect and lots more.
Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
It's a great bike but the saddle isn't female friendly either! :(
I have a 30 inch leg and i ordered the 52 and it is perfect !
The size guide remains the same for male or female.
Following the same process, I bought a 52cm frame, even though - contrary to the table - Wiggle suggested 55cm. I think the 52cm is fine for me. my wife is about your size and has a 52cm Cube.
I also have back problems but so far so good. However, since I bought he bike I read avreview which says the Falk which Wigle ave at about the same price was designed to relieve lower back strain. Had I known this at the time, it wuld have swayed my choice.
Interested in the Moser Speed Sora 2013 for my wife.
This will be her first road bike but she is an experienced rider of Mountain bikes. Her last bike was a Trek hardtail size 16"
Could you help me with the sizing. Her measurements are:
Height 5ft 4 1/2" or 164cm
Inside leg 29" or 74cm
Fingertip to Fingertip arm gap is 5ft 2 /12" or almost 160cm
It looks like she should be a 47 or 50 based on height but not sure which to go for.
Many thanks in advance,
