Cycle Tramp can you retake that photo from the other direction so we can see the giant cranes in the background. :D :wink: :wink:

Thanks for the interest - but, no not on tour. My brother and I just cycled down to a local beach with hot drink and some biscuits, to mark the half way point of a very strange year

No one needs to see that... (and I still can't believe they put it there, on that coast line, on top of a fault line.....)

Pashley Folder

the design was sold as the Pashley 'fold-it' for a while, and is a revised (by Richard Cresswell) version of the Radnall Micro. A potted history is here;

Damn, I'm so jealous right now! I've always regretted not buying one of these (I think it's a ''fold it' by Brilliant Cycles, which used to be Cresswell Engineering who were then bought out by Pashley, and then Pashley killed off this little beauty possibly to stop any competition between the fold it and their own Moulton).
At the time the 7 speed version got some rave reviews - it handled well, the 70 mm drum brakes working well with the 20 inch wheels and the 1.75 inch ? 1.50 inch ? wide tyres attempting to smooth the ride. If only the locking mechanism on my Dahon TR had been as simple and as robust as the locking mechanism on this one.
Personally I think Pashley missed a trick - I would love to see something like this re-introduced but perhaps with a longer wheel base, bosses for a front and rear racks, 135 mm drop out (rear) and room enough for 2.50 inch wide 20 inch wheels (thus allowing the rider to choose from the whole range of BMX tyres from super smooth to stupidly knobbly) with option of drum or disc brakes and hub/single speed or full 1/3 x 5/6/8/9/10/11 deraileur options. I think it's perfect for mixed mode bike/train/boat touring. I'd buy two:-)
