    I am using the Brommie for commuting and for travel, since the Brommie is the more convenient folder, and I have a hub dyno on the Brommie so it is very convenient for all kinds of riding, even though the Birdy is a nicer ride. Convenience wins the day. For touring I am using the Moulton. The Birdy was therefore hardly used for quite a long time. So I thought that it would be convenient to get a Brommie for SWMBO. Fund raising exercise, you see. I am in fact also strongly inclined to get a hub motor and will probably pester you with some questions before long. :-)

    Yes I think that is the cleverest/funniest pic posted so far

    Jur for small wheeled bikes/light assistance/weight in my view at the moment there is only one motor.

    http://www.keyde.com/?do=product&lan...nt=view&ids=07

    Most of the other motors are just too wide/heavy (this is only 80mm wide/1.4kg) and require that you spread the forks to much.

    Full details of the build here and more motor details here.

    Re the Moulton I have actaully decided to let my TSR2 go as for longer rides I just can't bring myself to leave it locked up and usually end up taking my Swift.

    Anyway to bring us back to topic a pair of Moultons 40 years apart. TSR splits but of course the 70s Raleigh Moulton MK3 is not a folder but years ahead of its time having rear and front suspension.



    Regards

    Soo true! If only people embraced the small wheel.. I have yet to find a carryme owner that doesnt love it though!

    converted an old dahon into a front loading cargo bike with modified bottom bracket for a cruiser type position. I use it now as my "go to " bike in San Francisco. It ain't pretty but I can lock it up when I go grocery shopping and hopefully there when I get back. The bin avoids the hassle of tying cargo to the rack. Just dump it, and off you go. Been riding with 30+ pound loads without any problem

    In the springtime the descendittuboconseres starts to change from it's white winter colouring (which provides camaflogue) to a myriad of brighter tones that are believed to attract mates. They are most vulnerable at this time as they often begin to show their summer colours before all the snow has gone and this makes them stand out.

    Like other members of their species they can also sprint at a very high rate of speed and contort themselves into shapes that make them look broken and dead.

    This phillipistwentius was observed folding upon itself in a defensive posture much like a hognose snake will play dead to fool predators.... one can see the many scars it bears from previous attacks and it's thick skin appears to have served it well in many battles with what appears to be fire and hammers.

    I was out in the wood the other day and spotted a flock of Brommies. Judging by their display I would guess that's it's mating season.

    Captive breeding programs of parva rota erucae suspensionis moultonis moultonis (nominate species) over the past 50 years has radically altered the form of the original species... seen here is the moultonis M3 which is standing in front of the moultonis TSR2.

    Archeologists have uncovered the skeletal remains of parva rota erucae suspensionis moultonis m2 in many countries around the world which shows they had a wide distribution, this one was discovered in Alberta Canada and is a very close relative of the moultonis moultonis or "m1".



    Professional Bikeologists are in the process of reconstructing these remains and looking into discovering the secrets of this rather uncommon species that does not appear to have any ability to fold. It is thought the evolution of a suspension stems from them developing in areas of rougher terrain where the added traction and control allowed them to outmaneuver other competitors.

    There is also some speculation that this was a predatory species who's high speed allowed it to pursue and capture much larger prey.

    To my untrained eye, it looks like it might be one of those cool old single wheeled trailers that would be pulled behind a Vespa scooter or motorcycle, maybe?
