My new Moulton TSR30

Now with Brookes honey brown saddle & tape. I have to say, it's a very stable bike with a wonderful ride. I was thinking to wire a rear dynamo light but might spare the extra energy from the Son for some kind of recharge unit.

Ah! What beauty!


'Who gave thee, O Beauty,
The keys of this breast,
Too credulous lover
Of blest and unblest?
Say, when in lapsed ages
Thee knew I of old;
Or what was the service
For which I was sold? '




And it's the right colour. Please trade it with me. I can offer these five Magic Beans.

Weird! What I did in the end is abandon the 'insert picture' option and just pasted the Flickr links! I hoped to embed normally but can't seem to do so

Great work, but without a radiator in the picture its hard to get a proper perspective.

I don't warm my bikes too much, I keep them hardy and let them get used to all weathers!

Snafu's Dahons appear to germinate by the warmth of the radiator! No wonder she's talking magic beans!

You would really need a cream or off-white radiator to set off the paint. I think Fudges sell them.

Yeah, you would need a blue radiator to go with that.

Taillight is only 0.6 .. though you may need a plug inline in the wiring, if you separate the frame often..


I used the bottle cage bolts to make a mount to use a B&M toplight line, [rackmount]
using 2 mudguard struts from a Zefal mudguard..
the fitting was using their clip that formerly held the 2 parallel wires at the bracket thru the mudguard.

instead the, loop that was on the frame eyelet, is on the back of the light, bolts, the V of the 2 legs of the strut, spread
so the clip holds a wire of the strut , one from the right 1 from the left.. under the bottle cage bolt.

I did this with my BikeFriday, that has a low rear facing bottle cage, the struts bent so the taillight is behind the bottle cage.

in your set up it would bend behind the seat tube, since bottle cage is front facing..

Mine worked out pretty Tidy..

now back tothe fawning praise for spending your money..

I guess it's too late to wish you Happy New Year, eh? You've clearly started it in fine fashion.

Love that Brooks saddle and matching bar tape.

Now you need to bring it over here and our TSR's can go riding together!

Very nice.
I think you should buy a Pacific IF Reach next and do a review of it for us.
