I recently purchased a new Brompton 6 speed from Bfold after reluctantly deciding that a Birdy would not fit into my trunk. I still lust a little over the Birdy but I must admit the Brompton M6L is great. I wasn’t sure how it would ride (no dealers in my area) but I have taken it out about 8 times for short 2 to 6 mile rides and could not be happier. BUT!
Here’s the problem. I have every intention on keeping the Brompton but I am still tempted by the Birdy and even more (perhaps) by the Pashley Moulton TSR. Especially after reading so many comments about them recently. To anyone who has ridden all or any of these:
1- Can a Mouton TSR be set up for a fairly upright ride for someone 5’ 8’? As I age I find that I am just not into drop bars and a tucked position. I am even in the middle of converting my Surly Cross Check to have Albatross bars over the next week or so.
2 – I won’t ask anyone to compare the Bropmton to these two bikes (I won’t stop anyone either) but I would like to have a comparison of the Birdy and the TSR.
