    Folderitis strikes again!

    Moulton TSR30. I once rode Sesamecrunch's (yes I blame him!) so when I test rode one again I was smitten. Now I will have to sell the Dahon Jetstream EX and possibly the Pacific Reach IF. I plan to add a honey brown Brookes B17 with cooper rails & rivets & matching Brooks tape. The front wheel has a Son 20 hub so I will either add a Sschmidt Edelux, Supernova E3 Triple or B&M Busch & Müller Cyo T Senso Plus. The latter seems by far the best value for money. I hope to get a B&M E-Werk at some stage to for longer rides to power my phone on GPS with the excellent Sportstracker on longer rides.

    Sweet! The spaceframes are wonderful. I rode one once - only bike where I felt like I was riding a suspension bridge, instead of over a suspension bridge.

    Wait a minute! Isn't there a statue of limitation on the crime of infecting others with folderitis? Mully's ride on my TSR was in July of 2008! Surely, I can't be held responsible for something that old!!!

    Nice bike, beautiful color!

    There's a lack of folding in this folderitis.

    Separating is just a slower version of folding.

    You apparently are a "bad" influence, you got me to build my folding recumbent after seeing pics of yours.
    With Moultons involved, all bets are off.

    cheers my friend!!

    Sweet, I'm so jealous.
    One day I shall have a TSR2, one day.

    Your only problem now is how are you going to top this bike in the future?
    Better start saving now, a Double Pylon isn't cheap.
    Or you could get into motorcycling and save money.

    Nice. I already own a TSR2. I would be interested to know your thoughts on how the TSR compares both with the Dahon Jetstream EX and Pacific Reach IF ? I guess the fact you have purchased the TSR and are selling the other two speaks volumes. One obvious difference, I realise, is the TSR has a steel frame.

    For me the Brompton and TSR provide the best of both worlds, the perfect bike being one that takes the comfort of the TSR and the small folded package of the Brompton.

    Oh and I forgot I also now have a Xootr which for me falls right in the middle of the two lol

    Regards

    Jerry

    Damn those Moulton Space frames are too cool not to have... but my wallet tries to tell me otherwise.
