Moulton TSR-2 reviewed at I Bike London blog
 
The review is exuberant, if not fully accurate in places (e.g., Moulton bikes of the 60s are referred to as "space frames"). Ditto one of the comments below it (e.g., there's nothing you can do to change the gearing on a belt drive - a point our own Bruce Metras debunked in another thread by listing the full range of Delta C-Drive cogs, sprockets, and belts available).

Overall, though, it's good to get another rider's perspective and see that the writer "gets" the TSR-2 even as one of the more verbose commenters works overtime to miss its point.

Thanks for that link Alex,

"rubber belt" indeed :rolleyes:

As you say though a very positive review. Lets hope they sell in bucket loads. I think there is a slight slow in sales though, as the new shrubber is sorted out. I keep meaning to update my post about it with a photo of the updated part that simply fits over the old one (once you remove the original roller) and provides for a much finer adjustment just off the belt. Mine has been fitted a couple weeks now with no problems.

Regards

Jerry

I emailed this person regarding a wheel build and found these cool handle bars on their site http://cgi.ebay.com/Lauterwasser-des...item27b93fc4c7

The Lauterwasser reproduction bars are very cool .. you can get them in the US for somewhat less .. they are SOMA Design, either in aluminum or steel.. I like them a lot..
