...Bridgestone Moulton S-18.
I guess that's not too bad a deal, is it?
Replica of the original 1960's F-Frame Moultons. Licensed to Bridgestone for manufacturing. Can't get them in the U.S. presently. So, when my Mom told me she was visiting Taiwan this Summer, my hyperactive folder-acquisition cortex kicked in. After an interminable month long wait, the BSM finally arrived into my hot little hands.
Aluminum frame, full suspension, Capreo drivetrain, 17" (369) wheels. Lots of panache and attitude.
I've just had the chance to ride it around the block. And, of course, I have no objectivity now, since this brand new toy just arrived yesterday, so I won't bother to comment on it. I will, however, have a chance to intimately compare the TSR and BSM and will try to write up a report in the future.
My plans are to convert it to drop bars, remove the rack and fenders and give it a sporty look. All in due course.
It joins the TSR and MK3 in the Moulton section of the collection.
What's that expression you Brits use - chuffed, is it? I think I'm chuffed...
Sad part was parting with my Tikit with the Schlumpf Drive in order to make room for this BSM. Yeah, even I have a conscience about how many folders to have
