I'm in the US, but I test rode a Mezzo several years ago and would love to try an Ori. (Mezzo has disappeared from the American market, and Ori has never appeared.)

Is it a specific store or...

I've been ignoring this incredibly useful thread for ages because I thought it was about bags for a specific model of folding bike called the "Foldaway."

Maybe a mod should nix the capitol F.

Is anyone able to compare the ride quality to that of either a Birdy or a Pacific Reach Road?

As I've only once or twice seen a Brompton on the street in this region, I'm thinking the demand may be awfully thin. Also, as I sold mine after only a few months, I doubt I'd make the best advocate....

It looks so cool... until you notice the "folded" handlebars flopping around like Goofy's ears (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/a/a6/Goofy.svg/220px-Goofy.svg.png).

From the linked article: "Today, the Moulton Bike Company is wholly owned by Pashley, bringing together two iconic bicycle brands."

I'm actually not. I just rode it to see how it compared to the TSR 8. A TSR 9, or something with a double chain ring, is probably what I want. I'm tempted to try cowhorn bars, but then I'd lose one...
